VALENTA structure (winreg.h)

Contains information about a registry value. The RegQueryMultipleValues function uses this structure.

Syntax

typedef struct value_entA {
  LPSTR     ve_valuename;
  DWORD     ve_valuelen;
  DWORD_PTR ve_valueptr;
  DWORD     ve_type;
} VALENTA, *PVALENTA;

Members

ve_valuename

The name of the value to be retrieved. Be sure to set this member before calling RegQueryMultipleValues.

ve_valuelen

The size of the data pointed to by ve_valueptr, in bytes.

ve_valueptr

A pointer to the data for the value entry. This is a pointer to the value's data returned in the lpValueBuf buffer filled in by RegQueryMultipleValues.

ve_type

The type of data pointed to by ve_valueptr. For a list of the possible types, see Registry Value Types.

Remarks

Note

The winreg.h header defines VALENT as an alias which automatically selects the ANSI or Unicode version of this function based on the definition of the UNICODE preprocessor constant. Mixing usage of the encoding-neutral alias with code that not encoding-neutral can lead to mismatches that result in compilation or runtime errors. For more information, see Conventions for Function Prototypes.
