DirectDraw Return Codes

Errors are represented by negative values and cannot be combined. This table lists the values that can be returned by all methods of the DirectDraw Interfaces and DirectDraw Functions. For a list of the error codes that each method or function can return, see the method or function description.

DD_OK

The request completed successfully.

DDERR_ALREADYINITIALIZED

The object has already been initialized.

DDERR_BLTFASTCANTCLIP

A DirectDrawClipper object is attached to a source surface that has passed into a call to the IDirectDrawSurface7::BltFast method.

DDERR_CANNOTATTACHSURFACE

A surface cannot be attached to another requested surface.

DDERR_CANNOTDETACHSURFACE

A surface cannot be detached from another requested surface.

DDERR_CANTCREATEDC

DDERR_CANTLOCKSURFACE

Access to this surface is refused because an attempt was made to lock the primary surface without Display Control Interface (DCI) support.
