PTIMERAPCROUTINE callback function

An application-defined timer completion routine. Specify this address when calling the SetWaitableTimer function. The PTIMERAPCROUTINE type defines a pointer to this callback function. TimerAPCProc is a placeholder for the application-defined function name.

Syntax

PTIMERAPCROUTINE Ptimerapcroutine;

void Ptimerapcroutine(
  LPVOID lpArgToCompletionRoutine,
  DWORD dwTimerLowValue,
  DWORD dwTimerHighValue
)
{...}

Parameters

lpArgToCompletionRoutine

The value passed to the function using the lpArgToCompletionRoutine parameter of the SetWaitableTimer function.

dwTimerLowValue

The low-order portion of the UTC-based time at which the timer was signaled. This value corresponds to the dwLowDateTime member of the FILETIME structure. For more information about UTC-based time, see System Time.

dwTimerHighValue

The high-order portion of the UTC-based time at which the timer was signaled. This value corresponds to the dwHighDateTime member of the FILETIME structure.

Return Value

This function does not return a value.

Remarks

The completion routine is executed by the thread that activates the timer using SetWaitableTimer. However, the thread must be in an alertable state. For more information, see Asynchronous Procedure Calls.

For an example, see Using a Waitable Timer with an Asynchronous Procedure Call.
