InterlockedExchange8 function

Sets an 8-bit variable to the specified value as an atomic operation.

To operate on a pointer variable, use the InterlockedExchangePointer function.

To operate on a 16-bit variable, use the InterlockedExchange16 function.

To operate on a 32-bit variable, use the InterlockedExchange function.

To operate on a 64-bit variable, use the InterlockedExchange64 function.

Syntax


char __cdecl InterlockedExchange8(
  _Inout_ char volatile *Target,
  _In_    char          Value
);

Parameters

Target [in, out]

A pointer to the value to be exchanged. The function sets this variable to Value, and returns its prior value.

Value [in]

The value to be exchanged with the value pointed to by Target.

Return value

The function returns the initial value of the Target parameter.

Remarks

The interlocked functions provide a simple mechanism for synchronizing access to a variable that is shared by multiple threads. This function is atomic with respect to calls to other interlocked functions.

This function is implemented using a compiler intrinsic where possible. For more information, see the WinBase.h header file and _InterlockedExchange8.

This function generates a full memory barrier (or fence) to ensure that memory operations are completed in order.

Note  This function is supported on Windows RT-based systems.
