DllStruct Element Name Limits

Reported by: mleo2003@… Owned by: Valik
Milestone: Component: Documentation
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: Cc:


I couldn't find this any where in the documentation, but DllStructCreate and the related functions do have a limit to what characters can be used for an element name. So far, we found the following letters are allowed:


(There are more, but for brevity sake, I'll only list these.)

I had 2 questions about this limit. Why does the element names not allow underscores while C structs allow them for names, and can we add these limits to the DllStructCreate (and possibly others) help entries? A few DllStructs I have been trying to use from MSDN contain underscores, and it took some experimenting to discover why my code kept failing with improper Struct variables, until I finally took out the underscores from the names on a hunch.

The forum post where I asked about this is here:
