Remarks

PKEY values are defined in Propkey.h.

If System.ItemType is VT_EMPTY, the value of this property is also VT_EMPTY. If the item is a file, the value of this property is the same as if you passed the file's System.ItemType value to PSFormatForDisplay.

This property should not be confused with System.Kind, which is a high-level, user-friendly kind name. For example, for a .doc document file, the various properties are as shown here:

PropertyValue
System.Kind Document
System.ItemType .doc
System.ItemTypeText Microsoft Word Document

 

Example values:

PathItemTypeText
c:\mydir\bar\hello.txtText File
\\server\share\mydir\goodnews.docMicrosoft Word Document
\\server\share\folderFile Folder
c:\MyDir\MyFolderFile Folder
/Mailbox Account/Inbox/'Re: Hello!'Outlook E-Mail Message
