InterlockedBitTestAndComplement function

Tests the specified bit of the specified LONG value and complements it. The operation is atomic.

Syntax


FORCEINLINE BOOLEAN InterlockedBitTestAndComplement(
  _Inout_  LONG volatile *Base,
  _In_     LONG Bit
);

Parameters

Base [in, out]

A pointer to a variable.

Bit [in]

The bit position to be tested.

Return value

The value of the specified bit.

Remarks

The interlocked functions provide a simple mechanism for synchronizing access to a variable that is shared by multiple threads. This function is atomic with respect to calls to other interlocked functions.

This function generates a full memory barrier (or fence) to ensure that memory operations are completed in order.
