This function obtains a handle to the heap of the calling process. This handle can then be used in calls to the HeapAlloc, HeapReAlloc, HeapFree, and HeapSize functions.


HANDLE GetProcessHeap(VOID);

None.

A handle to the heap of the calling process indicates success. NULL indicates failure. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.

The GetProcessHeap function allows you to allocate memory from the process heap without having to first create a heap with the HeapCreate function, as shown in this example.

HeapAlloc(GetProcessHeap(), 0, dwBytes);
