D3DX11CreateShaderResourceViewFromFile 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.

Note  Instead of using this function, we recommend that you use these:

  • DirectXTK library (runtime), CreateXXXTextureFromFile (where XXX is DDS or WIC)
  • DirectXTex library (tools), LoadFromXXXFile (where XXX is WIC, DDS, or TGA; WIC doesn't support DDS and TGA; D3DX 9 supported TGA as a common art source format for games) then CreateShaderResourceView

Create a shader-resource view from a file.

Syntax


HRESULT D3DX11CreateShaderResourceViewFromFile(
  _In_   ID3D11Device *pDevice,
  _In_   LPCTSTR pSrcFile,
  _In_   D3DX11_IMAGE_LOAD_INFO *pLoadInfo,
  _In_   ID3DX11ThreadPump *pPump,
  _Out_  ID3D11ShaderResourceView **ppShaderResourceView,
  _Out_  HRESULT *pHResult
);

Parameters

pDevice [in]

Type: ID3D11Device*

A pointer to the device (see ID3D11Device) that will use the resource.

pSrcFile [in]

Type: LPCTSTR

Name of the file that contains the shader-resource view. If the compiler settings require Unicode, the data type LPCTSTR resolves to LPCWSTR. Otherwise, the data type resolves to LPCSTR.

pLoadInfo [in]

Type: D3DX11_IMAGE_LOAD_INFO*

Optional. Identifies the characteristics of a texture (see D3DX11_IMAGE_LOAD_INFO) when the data processor is created; set this to NULL to read the characteristics of a texture when the texture is loaded.

pPump [in]

Type: ID3DX11ThreadPump*

Pointer to a thread-pump interface (see ID3DX11ThreadPump Interface). If NULL is specified, this function will behave synchronously and will not return until it is finished.

ppShaderResourceView [out]

Type: ID3D11ShaderResourceView**

Address of a pointer to the shader-resource view (see ID3D11ShaderResourceView).

pHResult [out]

Type: HRESULT*

A pointer to the return value. May be NULL. If pPump is not NULL, then pHResult must be a valid memory location until the asynchronous execution completes.

Return value

Type: HRESULT

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