PdhBrowseCountersA function

Displays a Browse Counters dialog box that the user can use to select one or more counters that they want to add to the query.

To use handles to data sources, use the PdhBrowseCountersH function.

Syntax

PDH_FUNCTION PdhBrowseCountersA(
  PPDH_BROWSE_DLG_CONFIG_A pBrowseDlgData
);

Parameters

pBrowseDlgData

A PDH_BROWSE_DLG_CONFIG structure that specifies the behavior of the dialog box.

Return value

If the function succeeds, it returns ERROR_SUCCESS.

If the function fails, the return value is a system error code or a PDH error code.

Remarks

Note that the dialog box can return PDH_DIALOG_CANCELLED if bSingleCounterPerDialogis FALSE and the user clicks the Close button, so your error handling would have to account for this.
