The following table shows values that are used in the SurfaceCaps member of the D3DMCAPS structure to describe the general nature of the surfaces that are supported by a device and which memory pools support which data types.

Value Description

D3DMSURFCAPS_LOCKBACKBUFFER

Indicates that the device allows its back buffers to be locked.

D3DMSURFCAPS_LOCKDEPTHBUFFER

Indicates that the device allows its depth/stencil buffers to be locked.

D3DMSURFCAPS_LOCKFRONTBUFFER

Indicates that the device allows its front buffer to be locked.

D3DMSURFCAPS_LOCKTEXTURE

Indicates that the device allows its texture maps to be locked.

D3DMSURFCAPS_MANAGEDPOOL

Indicates that the device supports the managed memory pool for vertex buffers, index buffers, and texture maps.

D3DMSURFCAPS_SYSBACKBUFFER

Indicates that the device locates its render targets in the system memory pool. This capability bit is mutually exclusive with D3DMSURFCAPS_VIDBACKBUFFER.

D3DMSURFCAPS_SYSDEPTHBUFFER

Indicates that the device locates its depth and stencil buffers in the system memory pool. This capability bit is mutually exclusive with D3DMSURFCAPS_VIDDEPTHBUFFER.

D3DMSURFCAPS_SYSFRONTBUFFER

Indicates that the driver supports front buffers in system memory.

This capability bit and D3DMSURFCAPS_VIDFRONTBUFFER are mutually exclusive.

D3DMSURFCAPS_SYSIMAGESURFACE

Indicates that the device allows you to allocate image surfaces in the system memory pool.

D3DMSURFCAPS_SYSINDEXBUFFER

Indicates that the device allows you to allocate index buffers in the system memory pool.

D3DMSURFCAPS_SYSTEXTURE

Indicates that the device allows you to allocate texture maps in the system memory pool.

D3DMSURFCAPS_SYSVERTEXBUFFER

Indicates that the device allows you to allocate vertex buffers in the system memory pool.

D3DMSURFCAPS_VIDBACKBUFFER

Indicates that the device locates its render targets in the video memory pool.

This capability bit and D3DMSURFCAPS_SYSBACKBUFFER are mutually exclusive.

D3DMSURFCAPS_VIDDEPTHBUFFER

Indicates that the device locates its depth and stencil buffers in the video memory pool.

This capability bit and D3DMSURFCAPS_SYSDEPTHBUFFER are is mutually exclusive.

D3DMSURFCAPS_VIDFRONTBUFFER

Indicates that the driver supports front buffers in video memory.

This capability bit and D3DMSURFCAPS_SYSFRONTBUFFER are mutually exclusive.

D3DMSURFCAPS_VIDIMAGESURFACE

Indicates that the device allows you to the allocate of image surfaces in the video memory pool.

D3DMSURFCAPS_VIDINDEXBUFFER

Indicates that the device allows you to allocate index buffers in the video memory pool.

D3DMSURFCAPS_VIDTEXTURE

Indicates that the device allows you to allocate texture maps in the video memory pool.

D3DMSURFCAPS_VIDVERTEXBUFFER

Indicates that the device allows you to allocate vertex buffers in the video memory pool.
