D3DX11CreateAsyncCompilerProcessor function

Note  The D3DX (D3DX 9, D3DX 10, and D3DX 11) utility library is deprecated for Windows 8 and is not supported for Windows Store apps. See Remarks.

Create an asynchronous-data processor for a shader.

Syntax


HRESULT D3DX11CreateAsyncCompilerProcessor(
  _In_   LPCSTR pFileName,
  _In_   const D3D11_SHADER_MACRO *pDefines,
  _In_   LPD3D10INCLUDE pInclude,
  _In_   LPCSTR pFunctionName,
  _In_   LPCSTR pProfile,
  _In_   UINT Flags1,
  _In_   UINT Flags2,
  _Out_  ID3D10Blob **ppCompiledShader,
  _Out_  ID3D10Blob **ppErrorBuffer,
  _Out_  ID3DX11DataProcessor **ppDataProcessor
);

Parameters

pFileName [in]

Type: LPCSTR

A string that contains the shader filename.

pDefines [in]

Type: const D3D11_SHADER_MACRO*

A NULL-terminated array of shader macros; set this to NULL to specify no macros.

pInclude [in]

Type: LPD3D10INCLUDE

A pointer to an include interface. This parameter can be NULL.

pFunctionName [in]

Type: LPCSTR

Name of the shader-entry point function where shader execution begins. When you compile an effect, D3DX11CreateAsyncCompilerProcessor ignores pFunctionName; we recommend that you set pFunctionName to NULL because it is good programming practice to set a pointer parameter to NULL if the called function will not use it..

pProfile [in]

Type: LPCSTR

A string that specifies the shader profile or shader model; can be any profile in shader model 2, shader model 3, shader model 4, or shader model 5. The profile can also be for effect type (for example, fx_4_1).

Flags1 [in]

Type: UINT

Shader compile flags.

Flags2 [in]

Type: UINT

Effect compile flags. When you compile a shader and not an effect file, D3DX11CreateAsyncCompilerProcessor ignores Flags2; we recommend that you set Flags2 to zero because it is good programming practice to set a nonpointer parameter to zero if the called function will not use it.

ppCompiledShader [out]

Type: ID3D10Blob**

Address of a pointer to the compiled effect.

ppErrorBuffer [out]

Type: ID3D10Blob**

Address of a pointer to compile errors.

ppDataProcessor [out]

Type: ID3DX11DataProcessor**

Address of a pointer to a buffer that contains the data processor created (see ID3DX11DataProcessor Interface).

Return value

Type: HRESULT

The return value is one of the values listed in Direct3D 11 Return Codes.

Remarks

There’s no implementation of the ‘async loader’ outside of D3DX 10, and D3DX 11.

For Windows Store apps, the DirectX samples (for example, the Direct3D tutorial sample) include the BasicLoader module that uses the Windows Runtime asynchronous programming model (AsyncBase).

For Win32 desktop apps, you can use the Concurrency Runtime to implement something similar to the Windows Runtime asynchronous programming model.

Requirements

Header

D3DX11async.h

Library

D3DX11.lib
