PAINT_GROUP_REGION Get the Paint region properties. pProperty points to a PAINTREGION structure.
PAINT_GROUP_FILL Get the Paint fill properties. pProperty points to a PAINTFILL structure.
PAINT_GROUP_TEXT Get the Paint fill properties. pProperty points to a PAINTTEXT structure.

const L_VOID * pProperty

Pointer to a PAINTXXX structure to be updated with the specified property values. The type of structure that this parameter points to is indicated by the nGroup parameter.
