LVM_GETISEARCHSTRING wParam = 0; 
    lParam = (LPARAM)(LPSTR) lpsz;

wParam

Not used.

lpsz

Long pointer to a buffer that receives the incremental search string.

The incremental search string is the character sequence that the user types while the list view has the input focus. Each time the user types a character, the system appends the character to the search string and then searches for a matching item. If the system finds a match, it selects the item and, if necessary, scrolls it into view.

The number of characters in the incremental search string indicates success. Zero indicates that the list-view control is not in incremental search mode.
