RasGetEntryDialParams info  Overview  Group

The RasGetEntryDialParams function retrieves the connection information saved by the last successful call to the RasDial or RasSetEntryDialParams function for a specified phone-book entry.

DWORD RasGetEntryDialParams(

    LPTSTR lpszPhonebook,

// pointer to the full path and filename of the phone-book file

    LPRASDIALPARAMS lprasdialparams,

// pointer to a structure that receives the connection parameters

    LPBOOL lpfPassword

// indicates whether the userís password was retrieved



Windows NT: Pointer to a null-terminated string that specifies the full path and filename of a phone-book (.PBK) file. If this parameter is NULL, the function uses the current default phone-book file. The default phone-book file is the one selected by the user in the User Preferences property sheet of the Dial-Up Networking dialog box.

Windows 95: Dial-up networking stores phone-book entries in the registry rather than in a phone-book file.

Pointer to a RASDIALPARAMS structure. On input, the dwSize member must specify the size of the RASDIALPARAMS structure, and the szEntryName member must specify a valid phone-book entry. On output, the structure receives the connection parameters associated with the specified phone-book entry.

Note that the szPhoneNumber member of the structure does not receive the phone number associated with the phone-book entry. To get the phone number associated with a phone-book entry, call the RasGetEntryProperties function.

Points to a flag that indicates whether the function retrieved the password associated with the user name for the phone-book entry. The function sets this flag to TRUE if the userís password was returned in the szPassword member of the RASDIALPARAMS structure pointed to by lprasdialparams.

Return Values

If the function succeeds, the return value is zero.

If the function fails, the return value can be one of the following error codes:




The lprasdialparams or lpfPassword pointer is invalid, or the lprasdialparams buffer is invalid.


The phone book is corrupted or missing components.


The phone-book entry does not exist.
