This function determines whether a character is a lead byte. A lead byte is the first byte of a character in a double-byte character set (DBCS).
BOOL IsDBCSLeadByte( BYTE TestChar );
- [in] The character to be tested.
TRUE indicates that the character is a lead byte.
FALSE indicates that either the character is not a lead byte or an error was generated.
For extended error information, call GetLastError.
Lead bytes are unique to double-byte character sets.
A lead byte introduces a double-byte character.
Lead bytes occupy a specific range of byte values.
The IsDBCSLeadByte function uses the ANSI code page to check lead-byte ranges. To specify a different code page, use the IsDBCSLeadByteEx function.
