An integer that defines the type of data contained in Value.

The following table shows integers and the types they represent.

Integer

Represented Type

1

Specifies that Value is an array of bytes.

2

Specifies that Value is a null-terminated ASCII string. If you set the type data member to ASCII type, you should set the Len property to the length of the string including the null terminator. For example, the string "Hello" would have a length of 6.

3

Specifies that Value is an array of unsigned short (16-bit) integers.

4

Specifies that Value is an array of unsigned long (32-bit) integers.

5

Specifies that Value data member is an array of pairs of unsigned long integers. Each pair represents a fraction; the first integer is the numerator and the second integer is the denominator.

6

Specifies that Value is an array of bytes that can hold values of any data type.

7

Specifies that Value is an array of signed long (32-bit) integers.

10

Specifies that Value is an array of pairs of signed long integers. Each pair represents a fraction; the first integer is the numerator and the second integer is the denominator.
