SERVICE_TYPE_INFO_ABS structure

The SERVICE_TYPE_INFO_ABS structure contains information about a network service type. Use SERVICE_TYPE_INFO_ABS to add a network service type to a namespace.

Syntax


typedef struct _SERVICE_TYPE_INFO_ABS {
  LPTSTR                 lpTypeName;
  DWORD                  dwValueCount;
  SERVICE_TYPE_VALUE_ABS Values[1];
} SERVICE_TYPE_INFO_ABS;

Members

lpTypeName

Pointer to a zero-terminated string that is the name of the network service type. This name is the same in all namespaces, and is used by the GetTypeByName and GetNameByType functions.

dwValueCount

Number of SERVICE_TYPE_VALUE_ABS structures in the Values member array that follows dwValueCount.

Values

Array of SERVICE_TYPE_VALUE_ABS structures.

Each of these structures contains information about a service type value that the operating system or network service may need when an instance of this network service type is registered with a namespace.

The information in these structures may be specific to a namespace. For example, if a network service uses the SAP namespace, but does not have a GUID that contains the SAP identifier (SAPID), it defines the SAPID in a SERVICE_TYPE_VALUE_ABS structure.

Remarks

When you use the SetService function to add a network service type to a namespace, the SERVICE_TYPE_INFO_ABS structure is passed as the ServiceSpecificInfo BLOB member of a SERVICE_INFO structure. Although the ServiceSpecificInfo member generally should not contain pointers, an exception is made in the case of the SERVICE_TYPE_INFO_ABS and SERVICE_TYPE_VALUE_ABS structures.
