function GetPrefs(

  Preferences: PPreferences;

  Size: SmallInt





A pointer to the memory buffer to receive your copy of the Intuition Preferences



The number of bytes in your PrefBuffer, the number of bytes you want copied from the system's internal Preference settings

Function result

Returns your parameter Preferences.


Gets a copy of the current Intuition Preferences structure. Writes the data into the buffer you specify. The number of bytes you want copied is specified by the size argument.

It is legal to take a partial copy of the Preferences structure. The more pertinent preferences variables have been grouped near the top of the structure to facilitate the memory conservation that can be had by taking a copy of only some of the Preferences structure.

A new and more extensible method for supplying Preferences has been introduced in V36, and relies on file system notification. The Intuition preferences items rely also on the IPrefs program. Certain elements of the Preferences structure have been superseded by this new method. As much as possible, the Preferences structure returned by GetPrefs() reflect the current state of Preferences. However, it is impossible to represent some of the V36-style preferences items using the existing Preferences structure.
