- wheezy 1.4.1-4
DESCRIPTION¶Compare two variants.
PARAMS¶left [In] First variant. right [In] Second variant. lcid [In] LCID (locale identifier) for the comparison. flags [In] Flags to be used in the comparison: NORM_IGNORECASE, NORM_IGNORENONSPACE, NORM_IGNORESYMBOLS, NORM_IGNOREWIDTH, NORM_IGNOREKANATYPE, NORM_IGNOREKASHIDA.
RETURNS¶VARCMP_LT: left variant is less than right variant. VARCMP_EQ: input variants are equal. VARCMP_GT: left variant is greater than right variant. VARCMP_NULL: either one of the input variants is NULL. Failure: An HRESULT error code indicating the error.
NOTES¶Native VarCmp up to and including WinXP doesn't like I1, UI2, VT_UI4, UI8 and UINT as input variants. INT is accepted only as left variant. If both input variants are ERROR then VARCMP_EQ will be returned, else an ERROR variant will trigger an error. Both input variants can have VT_RESERVED flag set which is ignored unless one and only one of the variants is a BSTR and the other one is not an EMPTY variant. All four VT_RESERVED combinations have a different meaning: - BSTR and other: BSTR is always greater than the other variant. - BSTR|VT_RESERVED and other: a string comparison is performed. - BSTR and other|VT_RESERVED: If the BSTR is a number a numeric comparison will take place else the BSTR is always greater. - BSTR|VT_RESERVED and other|VT_RESERVED: It seems that the other variant is ignored and the return value depends only on the sign of the BSTR if it is a number else the BSTR is always greater. A positive BSTR is greater, a negative one is smaller than the other variant.
SEE¶VarBstrCmp for the lcid and flags usage.
IMPLEMENTATION¶Declared in "oleauto.h". Implemented in "dlls/oleaut32/variant.c". Debug channel "variant".
