GlobalGetAtomName info  Overview  Group

The GlobalGetAtomName function retrieves a copy of the character string associated with the specified global atom.

UINT GlobalGetAtomName(

    ATOM nAtom,

// atom identifier

    LPTSTR lpBuffer,

// pointer to the buffer for the atom string

    int nSize 

// size of the buffer



Identifies the global atom associated with the character string to be retrieved.
Points to the buffer for the character string.
Specifies the size, in characters, of the buffer.

Return Values

If the function succeeds, the return value is the length of the string copied to the buffer, in characters, not including the terminating null character.

If the function fails, the return value is zero. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.


The string returned for an integer atom (an atom created by the MAKEINTATOM macro) is a null-terminated string in which the first character is a pound sign (#) and the remaining characters represent the unsigned integer originally passed to MAKEINTATOM.
