StringFromCLSID function

Converts a CLSID into a string of printable characters. Different CLSIDs always convert to different strings.

Syntax

  REFCLSID rclsid,
  LPOLESTR *lplpsz
);

Parameters

rclsid

The CLSID to be converted.

lplpsz

The address of a pointer variable that receives a pointer to the resulting string. The string that represents rclsid includes enclosing braces.

Return value

This function can return the standard return values E_OUTOFMEMORY and S_OK.

Remarks

StringFromCLSID calls the StringFromGUID2 function to convert a globally unique identifier (GUID) into a string of printable characters.

The caller is responsible for freeing the memory allocated for the string by calling the CoTaskMemFree function.
