CeGetThreadPriority (Compact 2013)

3/28/2014

This function gets the priority for a real-time thread.


int CeGetThreadPriority(
  HANDLE hThread
);

hThread

[in] Handle to a thread.

If the function succeeds, it returns the priority of the thread, which is a value from zero through 255. Zero is the highest priority.

THREAD_PRIORITY_ERROR_RETURN indicates failure. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.

This function returns the base priority of the thread. If priority inheritance changes the priority of a thread, the value returned by this function might not match the original thread priority or the value assigned by SetThreadPriority.

In previous releases, a call to GetThreadPriority or CeGetThreadPriority returned the priority of the current thread. The value returned might have been a priority boosted by priority inheritance.
