VOID DrvDisablePDEV(
  DHPDEV dhpdev 


[in] Pointer to the PDEV that describes the physical device to disable. This value is the handle returned by the DrvEnablePDEV function.

Return Values



This function is required for graphics drivers.

If a call to the DrvEnablePDEV function disabled the driver, the driver cannot access the hardware during a call to the DrvDisableSurface function because another active surface might be in use.

If the physical device has an enabled surface, the graphics device interface (GDI) calls this function after calling DrvDisableSurface. The driver should free any memory and resources used by the PDEV.
