[This function is subject to change with each operating system revision. Instead, use the DirectDraw and Microsoft Direct3DAPIs; these APIs insulate applications from such operating system changes, and hide many other difficulties involved in interacting directly with display drivers. ]
Wrapper for the NtGdiDdReenableDirectDrawObject function. It re-enables a Microsoft DirectDraw driver instance after a mode switch-style event such as a true mode switch, appearance of a full-screen Microsoft MS-DOS box, or change of display driver.
GdiEntry10 is defined as an alias for this function.
BOOL APIENTRY DdReenableDirectDrawObject( LPDDRAWI_DIRECTDRAW_GBL pDirectDrawGlobal, BOOL *pbNewMode );
DirectDraw object that needs to be re-enabled.
Pointer to a BOOL that will be filled with a value that represents whether the display mode changed.
If successful (the device can be re-enabled), this function returns TRUE. Otherwise (for example, the display driver was changed), it returns FALSE.
Once the object has been re-enabled, the capabilities for the device can be re-queried using a call to DdQueryDirectDrawObject or GdiEntry2.
Applications are advised to use the DirectDraw or Direct3DAPIs, which automate and abstract this process in a manner independent of the operating system.
