OREnumValue function

Enumerates the values for the specified open registry key in an offline registry hive. The function retrieves information for one value under the specified key each time the function is called.

Syntax


DWORD OREnumValue(
  _In_         ORHKEY Handle,
  _In_         DWORD dwIndex,
  _Out_        PWSTR lpValueName,
  _Inout_      PDWORD lpcValueName,
  _Out_opt_    PDWORD lpType,
  _Out_opt_    PBYTE lpData,
  _Inout_opt_  PDWORD lpcbData
);

Parameters

Handle [in]

A handle to an open registry key in an offline registry hive.

dwIndex [in]

The index of the value to be retrieved. This parameter should be zero for the first call to the function and then be incremented for subsequent calls.

Because values are not ordered, any new value will have an arbitrary index. This means that the function may return values in any order.

lpValueName [out]

A pointer to a buffer that receives the name of the value as a null-terminated string. This buffer must be large enough to include the terminating null character.

For more information, see Registry Element Size Limits.

lpcValueName [in, out]

A pointer to a variable that specifies the size of the buffer pointed to by the lpValueName parameter, in characters. When the function returns, the variable receives the number of characters stored in the buffer, not including the terminating null character.

lpType [out, optional]

A pointer to a variable that receives a code indicating the type of data stored in the specified value. For a list of the possible type codes, see Registry Value Types. The lpType parameter can be NULL if the type code is not required.

lpData [out, optional]

A pointer to a buffer that receives the data for the value entry. This parameter can be NULL if the data is not required.

If lpData is NULL and lpcbData is non-NULL, the function stores the size of the data, in bytes, in the variable pointed to by lpcbData. This enables an application to determine the best way to allocate a buffer for the data.

lpcbData [in, out, optional]

A pointer to a variable that specifies the size of the buffer pointed to by the lpData parameter, in bytes. When the function returns, the variable receives the number of bytes stored in the buffer.

This parameter can be NULL only if lpData is NULL.

If the data has the REG_SZ, REG_MULTI_SZ or REG_EXPAND_SZ type, this size includes any terminating null character or characters. For more information, see Remarks.

If the buffer specified by lpData is not large enough to hold the data, the function returns ERROR_MORE_DATA and stores the required buffer size in the variable pointed to by lpcbData. In this case, the contents of lpData are undefined.

Return value

If the function succeeds, the return value is ERROR_SUCCESS.

If the function fails, the return value is a nonzero error code defined in Winerror.h. You can use the FormatMessage function with the FORMAT_MESSAGE_FROM_SYSTEM flag to get a generic description of the error.

If the lpData buffer is too small to receive the value, the function returns ERROR_MORE_DATA.

Remarks

To enumerate values, an application should initially call the OREnumValue function with the dwIndex parameter set to zero. The application should then increment dwIndex and call the OREnumValue function until there are no more values (until the function returns ERROR_NO_MORE_ITEMS).

The application can also set dwIndex to the index of the last value on the first call to the function and decrement the index until the value with index 0 is enumerated. To retrieve the index of the last value, use the ORQueryInfoKey function.

While using OREnumValue, an application should not call any offline registry functions that might change the key being queried.

If the data has the REG_SZ, REG_MULTI_SZ or REG_EXPAND_SZ type, the string may not have been stored with the proper null-terminating characters. Therefore, even if the function returns ERROR_SUCCESS, the application should ensure that the string is properly terminated before using it; otherwise, it may overwrite a buffer. (Note that REG_MULTI_SZ strings should have two null-terminating characters.)

To determine the maximum size of the name and data buffers, use the ORQueryInfoKey function.
