  LPSPropValue rgprop,
  ULONG cprop,
  ULONG ulPropTag


[in] Array of SPropValue structures that define the properties to be searched.


[in] Count of properties in the property set indicated by the rgprop parameter.


[in] Property tag for the property to search for in the property set indicated by the rgprop parameter.

PpropFindProp returns an SPropValue structure defining the property that matches the input property tag, and NULL if there is no match.

If the given property tag indicates a property of type PT_UNSPECIFIED, the PpropFindProp function finds a match only for the property identifier in the tag. Otherwise, it finds a match for the entire property tag, including the property type, and returns the property identified.

For MFCMAPI sample code, see the following table.






MFCMAPI uses the PpropFindProp method to find properties in a property set being added to the list.
