    setRootKey

    Changes the root key being accessed.

    Method of

    WinReg object

    Syntax

    void setRootKey ( int key );
    

    Parameters

    The method has the following parameter:

    key
    An integer representing a root key in the registry.

    Returns

    Nothing.

    Description

    The setRootKey changes the root key.

    When you create a WinReg object, it is set to access keys under the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT portion of the registry. If you want to access keys in another portion, you must use this method to change the root key.

    On 16-bit Windows platforms, HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT is the only valid value and this method does nothing.

    These root keys are represented as fields of the WinReg object. The values you can use are:

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
    HKEY_USERS

    Example

    To use the HKEY_USERS section, use these statements:

    winreg = getWinRegistry();
    winreg.setRootKey(winreg.HKEY_USERS);
