apiAnsiStringThe API parameter or the API return variable is an Ansi string.API description variable
apiBooleanThe API parameter or the API return variable is a boolean.API description variable
apiBufferThe API parameter or the API return variable is a buffer.API description variable
apiCharacter
The API parameter or the API return variable is an Ansi character if the project is in Ansi mode, or a Unicode character if the project is in Unicode mode.
API description variable
apiFreeDLLIf the DLL was loaded to call the API, it will be unloaded. This constant is ignored if the DLL was already loaded during the call to the API.API description variable
apiInt_1The API parameter or the API return variable is a 1-byte integer.API description variable
apiInt_2The API parameter or the API return variable is a 2-byte integer.API description variable
apiInt_4The API parameter or the API return variable is a 4-byte integer.API description variable
apiInt_8The API parameter or the API return variable is a 8-byte integer.API description variable
apiLockThreads
  • Used to find out whether API or CallDLL32 locks the threads during its execution.
  • If this constant is used in the API Description variable, the call to the API locks all the current threads. This is used to protect the external DLL from the multi-thread calls.
APIParameter
API description variable
apiReal_4The API parameter or the API return variable is a 4-byte real.API description variable
apiReal_8The API parameter or the API return variable is an 8-byte real.API description variable
apiRestoreSystemSettings
  • Used to find out whether API or CallDLL32 restores the regional system settings (language, display of decimals, ...) after the execution of the Windows API.
  • If this constant is used in the API Description variable, the system parameters will be restored after the call to the API. Indeed, some APIs modify the system parameters.
