waveInGetDevCaps function

The waveInGetDevCaps function retrieves the capabilities of a given waveform-audio input device.

Syntax


MMRESULT waveInGetDevCaps(
  UINT_PTR uDeviceID,
  LPWAVEINCAPS pwic,
  UINT cbwic
);

Parameters

uDeviceID

Identifier of the waveform-audio output device. It can be either a device identifier or a handle of an open waveform-audio input device.

pwic

Pointer to a WAVEINCAPS structure to be filled with information about the capabilities of the device.

cbwic

Size, in bytes, of the WAVEINCAPS structure.

Return value

Returns MMSYSERR_NOERROR if successful or an error otherwise. Possible error values include the following.

Return codeDescription
MMSYSERR_BADDEVICEID

Specified device identifier is out of range.

MMSYSERR_NODRIVER

No device driver is present.

MMSYSERR_NOMEM

Unable to allocate or lock memory.

 

Remarks

Use this function to determine the number of waveform-audio input devices present in the system. If the value specified by the uDeviceID parameter is a device identifier, it can vary from zero to one less than the number of devices present. The WAVE_MAPPER constant can also be used as a device identifier. Only cbwic bytes (or less) of information is copied to the location pointed to by pwic. If cbwic is zero, nothing is copied and the function returns zero.
