LoadResource info  Overview  Group

The LoadResource function loads the specified resource into global memory.

HGLOBAL LoadResource(

    HMODULE hModule,

// resource-module handle

    HRSRC hResInfo 

// resource handle



Identifies the module whose executable file contains the resource. If hModule is NULL, Windows loads the resource from the module that was used to create the current process.
Identifies the resource to be loaded. This handle must be created by using the FindResource or FindResourceEx function.

Return Values

If the function succeeds, the return value is a handle to the global memory block containing the data associated with the resource.

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


Both Windows 95 and Windows NT automatically free resources. You do not need to call the FreeResource function to free a resource loaded by using the LoadResource function.
