GetTempPath

The GetTempPath function retrieves the path of the directory designated for temporary files. This function supersedes the GetTempDrive function.

VB4-32,5,6
Declare Function GetTempPath Lib "kernel32" Alias "GetTempPathA" (ByVal nBufferLength As Long, ByVal lpBuffer As String) As Long

Operating Systems Supported
Requires Windows NT 3.1 or later; Requires Windows 95 or later

Library
Kernel32

Parameter Information
nBufferLength
Specifies the size, in characters, of the string buffer identified by lpBuffer.

lpBuffer
Points to a string buffer that receives the null-terminated string specifying the temporary file path.

Return Values
If the function succeeds, the return value is the length, in characters, of the string copied to lpBuffer, not including the terminating null character. If the return value is greater than nBufferLength, the return value is the size of the buffer required to hold the path.

If the function fails, the return value is zero. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.
