StringFromAddr - Read a string at a given address

Private Declare Sub CopyMemory Lib "kernel32" Alias "RtlMoveMemory" (dest As _
    Any, source As Any, ByVal bytes As Long)
Private Declare Function lstrlenA Lib "kernel32" (ByVal lpString As Long) As _
Private Declare Function lstrlenW Lib "kernel32" (ByVal lpString As Long) As _

' retrieve a string at a given address
' if LENGTH < 0 the string is considered to be null-terminated
' and the function determines its length

Function StringFromAddr(ByVal address As Long, ByVal length As Long, _
    Optional ByVal isUnicode As Boolean) As String
    ' determine the length, if necessary
    If length < 0 Then
        If isUnicode Then
            length = lstrlenW(address)
            length = lstrlenA(address)
        End If
    End If
    ' copy the characters
    StringFromAddr = Space$(length)
    If isUnicode Then
        CopyMemory ByVal StrPtr(StringFromAddr), ByVal address, length * 2
        CopyMemory ByVal StringFromAddr, ByVal address, length
    End If
End Function
