shortword type


shortword is the type identifier for a built-in ordinal type, whose values are unsigned 16-bit integers between 0 and 65535.

This type is provided to make it easier to call calling external functions/procedures that expect and/or produce signed 16-bit integers. NOTE: Some functions/procedures in the Windows API expect and/or produce signed and unsigned 16-bit integers.
