Value Lists

A value list is a block of memory containing a sequence of data structures. Value lists are used as the building blocks of property lists and as return values for some control code operations.

Each data structure in the value list must be DWORD-aligned. It is a good idea to zero the memory of your value list buffer before building the list so that bytes used for padding do not contain misleading values.

To mark the end of a value list, the last entry in the list contains only the Syntax member of a data structure set to CLUSPROP_SYNTAX_ENDMARK. The last entry has no Length member and no data. The following diagram shows the layout of a value list.
