LHashValOfName function

Computes a hash value for a name.

Syntax


ULONG LHashValOfName(
         LCID    lcid,
   const OLECHAR *szName
);

Parameters

lcid

The LCID for the string.

szName

The string whose hash value is to be computed.

Return value

A hash value that represents the passed-in name.

Remarks

This function is equivalent to LHashValOfNameSys. The header file OleAuto.h contains macros that define LHashValOfName as LHashValOfNameSys, with the target operating system (syskind) based on the build preprocessor flags.

LHashValOfName computes a 32-bit hash value for a name that can be passed to ITypeComp::Bind, ITypeComp::BindType, ITypeLib::FindName, or ITypeLib::IsName. The returned hash value is independent of the case of the characters in szName, as long as the language of the name is one of the languages supported by the OLE National Language Specification API. Any two strings that match when a case-insensitive comparison is done using any language produce the same hash value.
