WM_CAP_GET_AUDIOFORMAT message

The WM_CAP_GET_AUDIOFORMAT message obtains the audio format or the size of the audio format. You can send this message explicitly or by using the capGetAudioFormat and capGetAudioFormatSize macros.

wParam = (WPARAM) (wSize); 
lParam = (LPARAM) (LPVOID) (LPWAVEFORMATEX) (psAudioFormat); 


Parameters

Size, in bytes, of the structure referenced bys.

psAudioFormat

Pointer to a WAVEFORMATEX structure, or NULL. If the value is NULL, the size, in bytes, required to hold the structure is returned.
