A DDE client application posts a WM_DDE_POKE message to a DDE server application. A client uses this message to request the server to accept an unsolicited data item. The server is expected to reply with a WM_DDE_ACK message indicating whether it accepted the data item.
WM_DDE_POKE wParam = (WPARAM) hwnd; // handle of posting application lParam = (LPARAM) lPackedVal; // packed DDEPOKE and item atom
Identifies a global memory object containing a DDEPOKE structure with the data and additional information.
Contains a global atom that identifies the data item for which the data or notification is being sent.
The client application posts the WM_DDE_POKE message by using the PostMessage function.
The client application must allocate memory for the hData object by using the GlobalAlloc function with the GMEM_DDESHARE option. The client application must delete the hData object if either of the following conditions is true:
The client application must create the aItem atom by using the GlobalAddAtom function.
The server application should post the WM_DDE_ACK message to respond positively or negatively. When posting WM_DDE_ACK, the server can either reuse the aItem atom, or it can delete it and create a new one.
The server must create or reuse the WM_DDE_ACK lPackedVal parameter by calling the PackDDElParam function or the ReuseDDElParam function with wStatus supplied as the low-order word and aItem supplied as the high-order word.
To free the hData object, the server should call the GlobalFree function. Also, if the data format is either CF_DSPMETAFILEPICT or CF_METAFILEPICT, the server must also call DeleteMetaFile with the embedded metafile handle. These two formats have an extra level of indirection; that is, an application must lock hData to get a pointer to a handle, then lock that handle to get a pointer to a METAFILEPICT structure, and finally call DeleteMetaFile with the handle from the hMF member of the METAFILEPICT structure.
To free the lPackedVal object, the server should call the FreeDDElParam function.
