MONLINKSTRUCT info  Overview  Group

The MONLINKSTRUCT structure contains information about a DDE advise loop. A DDE monitoring application can use this structure to obtain information about an advise loop that has started or ended.

typedef struct tagMONLINKSTRUCT { // mlst 

    UINT   cb; 

    DWORD  dwTime; 

    HANDLE hTask; 

    BOOL   fEstablished; 

    BOOL   fNoData; 

    HSZ    hszSvc; 

    HSZ    hszTopic; 

    HSZ    hszItem; 

    UINT   wFmt; 

    BOOL   fServer; 

    HCONV  hConvServer; 

    HCONV  hConvClient; 




Specifies the structure’s size, in bytes.
Specifies the Windows time when the advise loop was started or ended. Windows time is the number of milliseconds that have elapsed since the system was booted.
Identifies a task (application instance) that is a partner in the advise loop.
Indicates whether an advise loop was successfully established. A value of TRUE indicates an advise loop was established; FALSE indicates it was not.
Indicates whether the XTYPF_NODATA flag is set for the advise loop. A value of TRUE indicates the flag is set; FALSE indicates it is not.
Identifies the service name of the server in the advise loop.
Identifies the topic name on which the advise loop is established.
Identifies the item name that is the subject of the advise loop.
Specifies the format of the data exchanged (if any) during the advise loop.
Indicates whether the link notification came from the server. A value of TRUE indicates the notification came from the server; FALSE indicates otherwise.
Identifies the server conversation.
Identifies the client conversation.


Because string handles are local to the process, the hszSvc, hszTopic, and hszItem members are global atoms.

The hConvClient and hConvServer members of the MONLINKSTRUCT structure do not hold the same value as would be seen by the applications engaged in the conversation. Instead, they hold a globally unique pair of values that identify the conversation.
