The MCI_REALIZE command causes a graphic device to realize its palette into a device context (DC). Digital-video devices recognize this command.
To send this command, call the mciSendCommand function with the following parameters.
MCIERROR mciSendCommand( MCIDEVICEID wDeviceID, MCI_REALIZE, DWORD dwFlags, (DWORD) (LPMCI_GENERIC_PARMS) lpRealize );
Device identifier of the MCI device that is to receive the command message.
MCI_NOTIFY, MCI_WAIT, or, for digital-video devices, MCI_TEST. For information about these flags, see The Wait, Notify, and Test Flags.
Pointer to an MCI_GENERIC_PARMS structure. (Devices with extended command sets might replace this structure with a device-specific structure.)
Returns zero if successful or an error otherwise.
You should use this command when your application receives the WM_QUERYNEWPALETTE message.
The following additional flags are used with the digitalvideo device type:
Realizes the palette as a background palette.
Realizes the palette normally. This is the default.
For digital-video devices, the lpRealize parameter points to an MCI_REALIZE_PARMS structure. For more information, see comments in the MCI_GENERIC_PARMS structure.
