This function creates a BSTR that contains a specified number of characters from an old BSTR, and frees the old BSTR.


HRESULT SysReAllocStringLen(
  BSTR FAR* pbstr,
  OLECHAR FAR* pch,
  unsigned int cch 
);

pbstr

[out] Pointer to a string.

pch

[in] Pointer to cch characters to copy, or NULL to keep the string uninitialized.

cch

[in] Number of characters to copy from pch.A null character is placed afterward, allocating a total of cch+1 characters.

Returns an HRESULT value.

The SysReAllocStringLen function does the following:

  • Allocates a new string
  • Copies cch characters from the passed string into it
  • Appends a null character
  • Frees the BSTR referenced by pbstr
  • Resets pbstr to point to the new BSTR

If pch is NULL, a string of length cch is allocated but not initialized.

The pch string can contain embedded null characters and does not need to end with a NULL.

Only Unicode strings are supported.

Passing invalid (and under some circumstances NULL) pointers to this function causes an unexpected termination of the application.
