The number whose low-order word you want to get.
Related data can be stored in the high-order and low-order words of a variable. Therefore, instead of creating and returning a 2-element array, it may be more efficient to return a double word whose 2 words contain separate information. Also, many Windows API functions receive data in a LONGINT argument. Usually the high-order and low-order words of this argument contain different information about a window and its messages. LoWord() can be used to extract the low-order word of this argument.
This example uses LoWord() and HiWord() to determine the coordinates of a pixel. It assumes that liParam was passed to a Windows callback function:
CRTSetPixel(LoWord(liParam), HiWord(liParam), 0L)
