CPL_INIT message

Sent to the CPlApplet function of a Control Panel application to prompt it to perform global initialization, especially memory allocation.




                CPlApplet(

    hwndCPl,

    CPL_INIT,

    wParam,  // = 0; not used, must be zero

    lParam   // = 0; not used, must be zero 

);

            

Parameters

wParam
Must be zero.
lParam
Must be zero.

Return value

If initialization succeeds, the CPlApplet function should return nonzero. Otherwise, it should return zero.

If CPlApplet returns zero, the controlling application ends communication and releases the DLL containing the Control Panel application.

Remarks

Because this is the only way a Control Panel application can signal an error condition, the application should allocate memory in response to this message.

This message is sent immediately after the DLL containing the application is loaded.
