Members

BooleanVal

A Boolean value.

SByteVal

A signed 8-bit integer value.

Int16Val

A signed 16-bit integer value.

Int32Val

A signed 32-bit integer value.

Int64Val

A signed 64-bit integer value.

ByteVal

An unsigned 8-bit integer value.

UInt16Val

An unsigned 16-bit integer value.

UInt32Val

An unsigned 32-bit integer value.

UInt64Val

An unsigned 64-bit integer value.

SingleVal

A single precision real value.

DoubleVal

A double precision real value.

FileTimeVal

An 8-byte FILETIME value.

SysTimeVal

A SYSTEMTIME value.

GuidVal

A 16-byte GUID value.

StringVal

A null-terminated Unicode string.

AnsiStringVal

A null-terminated ANSI string value.

BinaryVal

A pointer to a hexadecimal binary value.

SidVal

A 4-byte ASCII value. A security identifier (SID) structure that uniquely identifies a user or group.

SizeTVal

A pointer address. The size of the address (4 bytes or 8 bytes) depends on whether the provider ran on a 32-bit or 64-bit operating system.

EvtHandleVal

An EVT_HANDLE value.

BooleanArr

A pointer to an array of Boolean values.

SByteArr

A pointer to an array of signed 8-bit values.

Int16Arr

A pointer to an array of signed 16-bit values.

Int32Arr

A pointer to an array of signed 32-bit values.

Int64Arr

A pointer to an array of signed 64-bit values.

ByteArr

A pointer to an array of unsigned 8-bit values.

UInt16Arr

A pointer to an array of unsigned 16-bit values.

UInt32Arr

A pointer to an array of unsigned 32-bit values.

UInt64Arr

A pointer to an array of unsigned 64-bit values.

SingleArr

A pointer to an array of single precision real values.

DoubleArr

A pointer to an array of double precision real values.

FileTimeArr

A pointer to an array of FILETIME values.

SysTimeArr

A pointer to an array of SYSTEMTIME values.

GuidArr

A pointer to an array of GUID values.

StringArr

A pointer to an array of null-terminated Unicode strings.

AnsiStringArr

A pointer to an array of null-terminated ANSI strings.

SidArr

A pointer to an array of 4-byte ASCII values.

SizeTArr

A pointer to an array of size_t values.

XmlVal

An XML string value.

XmlValArr

A pointer to an array of XML string values.

Count

The number of elements in the array of values. Use Count if the Type member has the EVT_VARIANT_TYPE_ARRAY flag set.

Type

A flag that specifies the data type of the variant. For possible values, see the EVT_VARIANT_TYPE enumeration.

The variant contains an array of values, if the EVT_VARIANT_TYPE_ARRAY flag is set. The members that end in "Arr" contain arrays of values. For example, you would use the StringArr member to access the variant data if the type is EvtVarTypeString and the EVT_VARIANT_TYPE_ARRAY flag is set.

You can use the EVT_VARIANT_TYPE_MASK constant to mask out the array bit to determine the variant's type.
