NotificationData [in]

A pointer to a constant LDR_DLL_NOTIFICATION union that contains notification data. This union has the following definition:

typedef union _LDR_DLL_NOTIFICATION_DATA {
    LDR_DLL_LOADED_NOTIFICATION_DATA Loaded;
    LDR_DLL_UNLOADED_NOTIFICATION_DATA Unloaded;
} LDR_DLL_NOTIFICATION_DATA, *PLDR_DLL_NOTIFICATION_DATA;

The LDR_DLL_LOADED_NOTIFICATION_DATA structure has the following definition:

typedef struct _LDR_DLL_LOADED_NOTIFICATION_DATA {
    ULONG Flags;                    //Reserved.
    PCUNICODE_STRING FullDllName;   //The full path name of the DLL module.
    PCUNICODE_STRING BaseDllName;   //The base file name of the DLL module.
    PVOID DllBase;                  //A pointer to the base address for the DLL in memory.
    ULONG SizeOfImage;              //The size of the DLL image, in bytes.
} LDR_DLL_LOADED_NOTIFICATION_DATA, *PLDR_DLL_LOADED_NOTIFICATION_DATA;

The LDR_DLL_UNLOADED_NOTIFICATION_DATA structure has the following definition:

typedef struct _LDR_DLL_UNLOADED_NOTIFICATION_DATA {
    ULONG Flags;                    //Reserved.
    PCUNICODE_STRING FullDllName;   //The full path name of the DLL module.
    PCUNICODE_STRING BaseDllName;   //The base file name of the DLL module.
    PVOID DllBase;                  //A pointer to the base address for the DLL in memory.
    ULONG SizeOfImage;              //The size of the DLL image, in bytes.
} LDR_DLL_UNLOADED_NOTIFICATION_DATA, *PLDR_DLL_UNLOADED_NOTIFICATION_DATA;
