ACCELTABLEENTRY structure

Describes the data in an individual accelerator table resource. The structure definition provided here is for explanation only; it is not present in any standard header file.

Syntax


typedef struct {
  WORD fFlags;
  WORD wAnsi;
  WORD wId;
  WORD padding;
} ACCELTABLEENTRY;

Members

fFlags

Type: WORD

Describes keyboard accelerator characteristics. This member can have one or more of the following values from Winuser.h.

ValueMeaning
FVIRTKEY
TRUE

The accelerator key is a virtual-key code. If this flag is not specified, the accelerator key is assumed to specify an ASCII character code.

FNOINVERT
0x02

A menu item on the menu bar is not highlighted when an accelerator is used. This attribute is obsolete and retained only for backward compatibility with resource files designed for 16-bit Windows.

FSHIFT
0x04

The accelerator is activated only if the user presses the SHIFT key. This flag applies only to virtual keys.

FCONTROL
0x08

The accelerator is activated only if the user presses the CTRL key. This flag applies only to virtual keys.

FALT
0x10

The accelerator is activated only if the user presses the ALT key. This flag applies only to virtual keys.

0x80

The entry is last in an accelerator table.

 

wAnsi

Type: WORD

An ANSI character value or a virtual-key code that identifies the accelerator key.

wId

Type: WORD

An identifier for the keyboard accelerator. This is the value passed to the window procedure when the user presses the specified key.

padding

Type: WORD

The number of bytes inserted to ensure that the structure is aligned on a DWORD boundary.

Remarks

The ACCELTABLEENTRY structure is repeated for all accelerator table entries in the resource. The last entry in the table is flagged with the value 0x0080.

You can compute the number of elements in the table if you divide the length of the resource by eight. Then your application can randomly access the individual fixed-length entries.
