DosGetCtryInfo

From EDM2
Jump to: navigation, search

This call obtains country-dependent formatting information that resides in the country information file.

Syntax

DosGetCtryInfo (Length, Country, MemoryBuffer, DataLength)

Parameters

Length (USHORT) - input 
Length, in bytes, of the data area (MemoryBuffer). This length should be at least 38 bytes.
Country (PCOUNTRYCODE) - input 
Address of the country information structure
MemoryBuffer (PCOUNTRYINFO) - output 
Address of the buffer where the country-dependent data is returned. The application must request enough space in memory, a minimum of 38 bytes, to hold the returned data. If the requested space is not large enough, the system fills the allocated space with as much data as it can hold. If the requested space is too large, the extra memory requested is set to 0.
DataLength (PUSHORT) - output 
Address of the length, in bytes, of the country dependent information.

Returns

rc (USHORT) - return
Return code descriptions are:
  • 0 NO_ERROR
  • 396 ERROR_NLS_NO_COUNTRY_FILE
  • 397 ERROR_NLS_OPEN_FAILED
  • 398 ERROR_NO_COUNTRY_OR_CODEPAGE
  • 399 ERROR_NLS_TABLE_TRUNCATED

Remarks

The returned country dependent information may be for the default country and current process code page, or for a specific country and code page. For more information on code page, see DosSetCp.

Family API Considerations

Some options operate differently in DOS mode than in OS/2 mode. Note that not all country information is available in DOS 3.3.

Example

This example gets country-dependent information.

#define INCL_DOSNLS

#define CURRENT_COUNTRY 0
#define NLS_CODEPAGE 850

COUNTRYCODE Country;
COUNTRYINFO CtryBuffer;
USHORT      Length;
USHORT      rc;

   Country.country = CURRENT_COUNTRY;
   Country.codepage = NLS_CODEPAGE;

   rc = DosGetCtryInfo(sizeof(CtryBuffer), /* Length of data area provided */
                       &Country,           /* Input data structure */

                       &Length);           /* Length of data returned */
