This method retrieves the scan line that is currently being drawn on the monitor.


HRESULT GetScanLine(
  LPDWORD lpdwScanLine
); 

lpdwScanLine

Address of the variable that will contain the scan line the display is currently drawing.

If the method succeeds, the return value is DD_OK.

If the method fails, the return value may be one of the following error values:

DDERR_INVALIDOBJECT

DDERR_INVALIDPARAMS

DDERR_UNSUPPORTED

DDERR_VERTICALBLANKINPROGRESS

For more information on these error codes see DirectDraw Return Values.

Scan lines are reported as zero-based integers.

The returned scan line value is between 0 and n, where scan line 0 is the first visible scan line on the screen and n is the last visible scan line, plus scan lines that occur during the vertical blank period.

So, in a case where an application is running at 640×480, and there are 12 scan lines during the vertical blank period, the values returned by this method will range from 0 to 491.
