Returns a global memory handle to a byte array object created using the CreateILockBytesOnHGlobal function.

HRESULT GetHGlobalFromILockBytes(

ILockBytes * pLkbyt,
//Points to the byte array object
HGLOBAL * phglobal
//Points to the current memory handle for the specified byte array



Points to the byte array object previously created by a call to the CreateILockBytesOnHGlobal function.


Points to the current memory handle used by the specified byte array object.

Return Values


Indicates the handle was returned successfully.


Indicates invalid value specified for the pLkbyt parameter. It can also indicate that the byte array object passed in is not one created by the CreateILockBytesOnHGlobal function.


The handle this function returns might be different from the original handle due to intervening calls to the GlobalRealloc function.

The contents of the returned memory handle can be written to a clean disk file, and then opened as a storage object using the StgOpenStorage function.

This function only works within the same process from which the byte array was created.
