ZwQueryEaFile

The ZwQueryEaFile routine returns information about extended-attribute (EA) values for a file.

Syntax

NTSTATUS ZwQueryEaFile(
  __in      HANDLE FileHandle,
  __out     PIO_STATUS_BLOCK IoStatusBlock,
  __out     PVOID Buffer,
  __in      ULONG Length,
  __in      BOOLEAN ReturnSingleEntry,
  __in_opt  PVOID EaList,
  __in      ULONG EaListLength,
  __in_opt  PULONG EaIndex,
  __in      BOOLEAN RestartScan
);

Parameters

FileHandle [in]

The handle for the file on which the operation is to be performed.

IoStatusBlock [out]

A pointer to an IO_STATUS_BLOCK structure that receives the final completion status and other information about the requested operation.

Buffer [out]

A pointer to a caller-supplied FILE_FULL_EA_INFORMATION-structured input buffer, where the extended attribute values are to be returned.

Length [in]

The length, in bytes, of the buffer that the Buffer parameter points to.

ReturnSingleEntry [in]

Set to TRUE if ZwQueryEaFile should return only the first entry that is found.

EaList [in, optional]

A pointer to a caller-supplied FILE_GET_EA_INFORMATION-structured input buffer, which specifies the extended attributes to be queried. This parameter is optional and can be NULL.

EaListLength [in]

The length, in bytes, of the buffer that the EaList parameter points to.

EaIndex [in, optional]

The index of the entry at which scanning the file's extended-attribute list should begin. This parameter is ignored if the EaList parameter points to a nonempty list. This parameter is optional and can be NULL.

RestartScan [in]

Set to TRUE if ZwQueryEaFile should begin the scan at the first entry in the file's extended-attribute list. If this parameter is set to FALSE, the routine resumes the scan from a previous call to ZwQueryEaFile.

Return Value

ZwQueryEaFile returns STATUS_SUCCESS or an appropriate NTSTATUS value such as the following:

Return valueDescription
STATUS_EAS_NOT_SUPPORTED

The file system does not support extended attributes. This is an error code.

STATUS_INSUFFICIENT_RESOURCES

The ZwQueryEaFile routine encountered a pool allocation failure. This is an error code.

STATUS_EA_LIST_INCONSISTENT

The EaList parameter is not formatted correctly. This is an error code.
