Creates or opens a waitable timer object.

To specify an access mask for the object, use the CreateWaitableTimerEx function.


HANDLE WINAPI CreateWaitableTimer(
  _In_opt_  LPSECURITY_ATTRIBUTES lpTimerAttributes,
  _In_      BOOL bManualReset,
  _In_opt_  LPCTSTR lpTimerName


lpTimerAttributes [in, optional]
A pointer to a SECURITY_ATTRIBUTES structure that specifies a security descriptor for the new timer object and determines whether child processes can inherit the returned handle.
If lpTimerAttributes is NULL, the timer object gets a default security descriptor and the handle cannot be inherited. The ACLs in the default security descriptor for a timer come from the primary or impersonation token of the creator.
bManualReset [in]
If this parameter is TRUE, the timer is a manual-reset notification timer. Otherwise, the timer is a synchronization timer.
lpTimerName [in, optional]
The name of the timer object. The name is limited to MAX_PATH characters. Name comparison is case sensitive.
If lpTimerName is NULL, the timer object is created without a name.
If lpTimerName matches the name of an existing event, semaphore, mutex, job, or file-mapping object, the function fails and GetLastError returns ERROR_INVALID_HANDLE. This occurs because these objects share the same namespace.

Return value

If the function succeeds, the return value is a handle to the timer object. If the named timer object exists before the function call, the function returns a handle to the existing object and GetLastError returns ERROR_ALREADY_EXISTS.

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