Retrieves the localized string that describes the object's role for the specified role value.
UINT GetRoleTextA( DWORD lRole, LPSTR lpszRole, UINT cchRoleMax );
One of the object role constants.
Address of a buffer that receives the role text string. If this parameter is NULL, the function returns the role string's length, not including the null character.
The size of the buffer that is pointed to by the lpszRole parameter. For ANSI strings, this value is measured in bytes; for Unicode strings, it is measured in characters.
If successful, and if lpszRole is non-NULL, the return value is the number of bytes (ANSI strings) or characters (Unicode strings) copied into the buffer, not including the terminating null character. If lpszRole is NULL, the return value represents the string's length, not including the null character.
If the string resource does not exist, or if the lpszRole parameter is not a valid pointer, the return value is zero (0). To get extended error information, call GetLastError.
