Reads integer data from the registry.

int GetSectionInt(
   LPCTSTR lpszSubSection,
   LPCTSTR lpszEntry,
   int nDefault = 0

[in] lpszSubSection

A string that contains the relative path of a registry key.

[in] lpszEntry

A string that contains the value to read.

[in] nDefault

The default value to return if the specified value does not exist.

The integer data that is stored in the specified registry value; nDefault if the data does not exist.

Use the methods CWinAppEx::WriteInt and CWinAppEx::WriteSectionInt to write integer data to the registry.

The lpszSubSection parameter is not an absolute path of a registry entry. It is a relative path that is added to the end of the default registry key for your application. To get or set the default registry key, use the methods CWinAppEx::GetRegistryBase and CWinAppEx::SetRegistryBase respectively.
