Creates an information context for the specified device.
Points to a null-terminated string that specifies the filename (without extension) of the device driver (for example, "EPSON"). You can pass a CString object for this parameter.
Points to a null-terminated string that specifies the name of the specific device to be supported (for example, "EPSON FX-80"). The lpszDeviceName parameter is used if the module supports more than one device. You can pass a CString object for this parameter.
Points to a null-terminated string that specifies the file or device name for the physical output medium (file or port). You can pass a CString object for this parameter.
Points to device-specific initialization data for the device driver. The lpInitData parameter must be NULL if the device driver is to use the default initialization (if any) specified by the user through the Control Panel. See CreateDC for the data format for device-specific initialization.
Nonzero if successful; otherwise 0.
The information context provides a fast way to get information about the device without creating a device context.
Device names follow these conventions: an ending colon (:) is recommended, but optional. Windows strips the terminating colon so that a device name ending with a colon is mapped to the same port as the same name without a colon. The driver and port names must not contain leading or trailing spaces. GDI output functions cannot be used with information contexts.
