Initializes the class object with an allocated global buffer handle.


#include "ltwrappr.h"

L_INT LBuffer::SetHandle(pMemHandle, dwSize=0)


HGLOBAL * pMemHandle

Pointer to a global memory handle.

L_SIZE_T dwSize

The size of the global memory handle. Pass 0 to let the function get the size.


Value Meaning
SUCCESS The function was successful.
< 1 An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.


You can use this function to have the class object manipulate a buffer that you have previously allocated. This memory will be automatically freed when the class object is destroyed.

If the object already has an allocated buffer associated with it, that buffer is freed before the new handle is set.

The passed memory handle will be invalidated after this operation.

Required DLLs and Libraries


Win32, x64.
