Waits for one or more objects to enter a signaled state.
Count - the number of handles passed in the
Handles parameter, up to
Handles - a pointer to an array of handles. Each handle must grant
WaitType - the type of wait to perform, either
Alertable - determines whether the wait should be altertable. This allows external triggers (such as APCs or calls to
NtAlertThread) to interrupt wait prematurely.
Timeout - an optional pointer to a variable that stores the wait internal. A negative value indicates relative timeout for the specified number of 100-nanosecond intervals. To wait a specific number of milliseconds, multiply them by
-10,000. Positive values indicate an absolute time.
NULL indicates an infinite timeout.
STATUS_WAIT_63 - the thread woke due to the n'th object being signaled.
STATUS_ABANDONED_WAIT_63 - the thread woke due to the n'th passed mutex becoming abandoned.
STATUS_TIMEOUT - the thread woke due to the timeout.
STATUS_USER_APC - the wait was interrupted by an APC.
STATUS_ALERTED - the wait was interrupted by a call to
Despite the name,
NtAlertThreadByThreadId is unrelated to alertable waits and cannot interrupt them.
