The RGNDATAstructure used with this method has the following syntax:

typedef struct _RGNDATA { RGNDATAHEADER rdh; char
Buffer[1]; } RGNDATA;

The rdhmember of the RGNDATAstructure is an RGNDATAHEADERstructure that has the following syntax:

typedef struct _RGNDATAHEADER { DWORD dwSize;
DWORD iType; DWORD nCount; DWORD nRgnSize; RECT rcBound; }
