MAKEINTATOM macro

Converts the specified atom into a string, so it can be passed to functions which accept either atoms or strings.

Syntax


LPTSTR MAKEINTATOM(
   WORD wInteger
);

Parameters

wInteger

The numeric value to be made into an integer atom. This parameter can be either an integer atom or a string atom.

Return value

The return value is an integer atom cast to a string pointer.

Remarks

Although the return value of the MAKEINTATOM macro is cast as an LPTSTR value, it cannot be used as a string pointer except when it is passed to atom-management functions that require an LPTSTR argument.
