Members

dwSize

Specifies the size in bytes of this DDSURFACEDESC structure. This member must be initialized before the structure is used.

dwFlags

Specifies a set of flags that determine what members of the DDSURFACEDESC structure contain valid data. This member can be one or more of the following flags:

FlagMeaning

DDSD_ALL

All input members contain valid data.

DDSD_ALPHABITDEPTH

The dwAlphaBitDepth member is valid.

DDSD_BACKBUFFERCOUNT

The dwBackBufferCount member is valid.

DDSD_CAPS

The ddsCaps member is valid.

DDSD_CKDESTBLT

The ddckCKDestBlt member is valid.

DDSD_CKDESTOVERLAY

The ddckCKDestOverlay member is valid.

DDSD_CKSRCBLT

The ddckCKSrcBlt member is valid.

DDSD_CKSRCOVERLAY

The ddckCKSrcOverlay member is valid.

DDSD_HEIGHT

The dwHeight member is valid.

DDSD_LINEARSIZE

The dwLinearSize member is valid.

DDSD_MIPMAPCOUNT

The dwMipMapCount member is valid.

DDSD_PITCH

The lPitch member is valid.

DDSD_PIXELFORMAT

The ddpfPixelFormat member is valid.

DDSD_REFRESHRATE

The dwRefreshRate member is valid.

DDSD_WIDTH

The dwWidth member is valid.

DDSD_ZBUFFERBITDEPTH

The dwZBufferBitDepth member is valid.

 

dwHeight

Specifies the height of surface, in pixels.

dwWidth

Specifies the width of the surface, in pixels.

lPitch

Specifies the number of bytes between the beginnings of two adjacent scan lines; that is, the number of bytes to add to the beginning address of one scan line to reach the beginning address of the next scan line below it. The driver's DdCreateSurface callback must return this value.

dwLinearSize

Specifies the size in bytes of a formless, late-allocated, optimized surface.

dwBackBufferCount

Specifies the number of back buffers associated with the surface.

dwMipMapCount

Specifies the number of mipmap levels.

dwZBufferBitDepth

Specifies the depth of z-buffer in bits per pixel.

dwRefreshRate

Specifies the refresh rate in hertz of the monitor (used when the display mode is described).

dwAlphaBitDepth

Specifies the depth of the alpha buffer in bits per pixel.

dwReserved

Reserved and should be set to zero.

lpSurface

Specifies the address of the associated surface memory.

ddckCKDestOverlay

Specifies the color key for destination overlay use.

ddckCKDestBlt

Specifies the color key for destination blt use.

ddckCKSrcOverlay

Specifies the color key for source overlay use.

ddckCKSrcBlt

Specifies the color key for source blt use.

ddpfPixelFormat

Specifies a DDPIXELFORMAT structure that describes the pixel format of the surface.

ddsCaps

Specifies a DDSCAPS structure that contains the Microsoft DirectDrawMicrosoft surface capabilities.

Remarks

The relevant members differ for each potential type of surface. This structure is typically created and initialized by an application.
