CPLINFO structure

Contains resource information and an application-defined value for a dialog box supported by a Control Panel application. The CPlApplet function of the Control Panel application returns this information to the Control Panel in response to a CPL_INQUIRE message.

Syntax

typedef struct tagCPLINFO {
  int      idIcon;
  int      idName;
  int      idInfo;
  LONG_PTR lData;
} CPLINFO, *LPCPLINFO;

Members

idIcon

Type: int

The resource identifier of the icon that represents the dialog box.

idName

Type: int

The resource identifier of the string containing the short name for the dialog box. This name is intended to be displayed below the icon.

idInfo

Type: int

The resource identifier of the string containing the description for the dialog box that is intended to be displayed when the application icon is selected.

lData

Remarks

If the icon or display strings of the dialog box can change based on the state of the computer, you can specify the CPL_DYNAMIC_RES value for the idIcon, idName, or idInfo members rather than specifying a valid resource identifier. This causes the Control Panel to send the CPL_NEWINQUIRE message each time it needs the icon and display strings. Using this technique is significantly slower, however, because the Control Panel will need to load your application each time it sends the CPL_NEWINQUIRE message.
