CWinAppEx::GetSectionString

Reads string data from the registry.

CString GetSectionString(
   LPCTSTR lpszSubSection,
   LPCTSTR lpszEntry,
   LPCTSTR lpszDefault = _T("")
);
[in] lpszSubSection

A string that contains the relative path of a registry key.

[in] lpszEntry

A string that contains the value to read.

[in] lpszDefault

The default value to return if the specified value does not exist.

The string data stored in the specified registry value if the data exists; otherwise lpszDefault.

This method reads string data written to the registry. Use CWinAppEx::WriteString and CWinAppEx::WriteSectionString to write string data to the registry.

The lpszSubSection parameter is not an absolute path for a registry entry. It is a relative path that is appended to the end of the default registry key for your application. To get or set the default registry key, use the methods CWinAppEx::GetRegistryBase and CWinAppEx::SetRegistryBase respectively.
