int = GetString(flags, assocStr , )

Searches for and retrieves a file association-related string from the registry.


flags : int

Used to control the search.

assocStr : int

Specifies the type of string that is to be returned.

=extra : string

Optional string with information about the location of the key. It is normally set to a shell verb such as 'open'. Set this parameter to None if it is not used.


Note that ASSOCF_NOTRUNCATE semantics are currently not supported - the buffer passed is 2048 bytes long, and will be truncated by the shell if too small.
