The RtlNumberOfSetBits routine returns a count of the set bits in a given bitmap variable.

Syntax

NTSYSAPI ULONG RtlNumberOfSetBits(
  PRTL_BITMAP BitMapHeader

Parameters

BitMapHeader

Return Value

RtlNumberOfSetBits returns a count of the bits that are currently set.

Remarks

Callers of RtlNumberOfSetBits must be running at IRQL <= APC_LEVEL if the memory that contains the bitmap variable is pageable or the memory at BitMapHeader is pageable. Otherwise, RtlNumberOfSetBits can be called at any IRQL.
