IDListContainerIsConsistent function

Verifies that the container structure of an IDList is valid.

Syntax


BOOL __inline IDListContainerIsConsistent(
  _In_ PCUIDLIST_RELATIVE pidl,
  _In_ UINT               cbAlloc
);

Parameters

pidl [in]

A pointer to the IDList to validate.

cbAlloc [in]

The size, in bytes, of the PIDL specified in the pidl parameter.

Return value

TRUE if the IDList structure is valid; otherwise, FALSE.

Remarks

This function should be used by any code that reads an IDList from a persisted format to ensure that invalid forms do not lead to a security exploit in the code that interprets the IDList. Shell data sources are responsible for validating private sections of the ITEMIDs. Hidden data is validated by the functions that interpret that data.
