GetTrusteeTypeA function (aclapi.h)

The GetTrusteeType function retrieves the trustee type from the specified TRUSTEE structure. This value indicates whether the trustee is a user, a group, or the trustee type is unknown.

Syntax

TRUSTEE_TYPE GetTrusteeTypeA(
  [in, optional] PTRUSTEE_A pTrustee
);

Parameters

[in, optional] pTrustee

A pointer to a TRUSTEE structure.

Return value

Remarks

Note

The aclapi.h header defines GetTrusteeType as an alias which automatically selects the ANSI or Unicode version of this function based on the definition of the UNICODE preprocessor constant. Mixing usage of the encoding-neutral alias with code that not encoding-neutral can lead to mismatches that result in compilation or runtime errors. For more information, see Conventions for Function Prototypes.
