SHChangeUpdateImageIDList structure

[SHChangeUpdateImageIDList is available for use in the operating systems specified in the Requirements section. It may be altered or unavailable in subsequent versions.]

Stores the information used as parameters to SHUpdateImage in a form mimicking an ITEMIDLIST so that they can be used by SHChangeNotify.

Syntax

typedef struct _SHChangeUpdateImageIDList {
  USHORT cb;
  int    iIconIndex;
  int    iCurIndex;
  UINT   uFlags;
  DWORD  dwProcessID;
  WCHAR  szName[MAX_PATH];
  USHORT cbZero;
} SHChangeUpdateImageIDList, *LPSHChangeUpdateImageIDList;

Members

cb

Type: USHORT

The size of the structure, in bytes.

iIconIndex

Type: int

The zero-based index of the icon in the file specified by szName. Obtain this value by calling IExtractIcon::GetIconLocation and retrieving the value pointed to by piIndex.

iCurIndex

Type: int

The zero-based index in the system image list of the icon being updated.

uFlags

Type: UINT

Flags that determine the icon attributes. Obtain this value by calling IExtractIcon::GetIconLocation and retrieving the value pointed to by pwFlags. These two flags are relevant to SHUpdateImage.

GIL_NOTFILENAME

The location is not a file name/index pair. Calling applications that decide to extract the icon from the location must call this object's IExtractIcon::Extract method to obtain the desired icon images.

GIL_SIMULATEDOC

The calling application should create a document icon using the specified icon.

dwProcessID

szName

Type: WCHAR[MAX_PATH]

A null-terminated Unicode string that specifies the fully qualified path of the file that contains the icon. Obtain this value by calling IExtractIcon::GetIconLocation and retrieving the value pointed to by szIconFile.

cbZero

Type: USHORT

Remarks

This example demonstrates the use of SHChangeUpdateImageIDList and SHChangeDWORDAsIDList by SHChangeNotify to mimic the SHUpdateImage function.

void MyUpdateImage(LPCWSTR pszHashItem, int iIndex, UINT uFlags, int iImageIndex)
{
    SHChangeUpdateImageIDList rgPidl;
    SHChangeDWORDAsIDList rgDWord;
    int cchLen;
    USHORT *pcb;
// Validate parameters: iImageIndex must be a valid system image list value.
if (iImageIndex < 0)
{
    return;
}

// Validate parameters: pszHashItem must not exceed MAX_PATH in length
cchLen = lstrlenW(pszHashItem);
if (cchLen >= MAX_PATH)
{
    return;
}

// Load SHChangeUpdateImageIDList
rgPidl.dwProcessID = GetCurrentProcessId();
rgPidl.iIconIndex = iIndex;
rgPidl.iCurIndex = iImageIndex;
rgPidl.uFlags = uFlags;
lstrcpynW(rgPidl.szName, pszHashItem, MAX_PATH);
pcb = &rgPidl.szName[cchLen+1];

// Set the size of the first element
rgPidl.cb = (USHORT)((BYTE*)pcb - (BYTE*)rgPidl); 

// Terminate the "ITEMIDLIST"
*pcb = 0; 

// Load SHChangeDWORDAsIDList
rgDWord.cb = (USHORT)FIELD_OFFSET(SHChangeDWORDAsIDList, cbZero);
rgDWord.dwItem1 = iImageIndex;
rgDWord.dwItem2 = 0;
rgDWord.cbZero = 0;

// Parameters are now in the form that SHCNE_UPDATEIMAGE can accept
SHChangeNotify(SHCNE_UPDATEIMAGE, SHCNF_IDLIST, &rgDWord, &rgPidl);

}
