CBaseControlVideo class

CBaseControlVideo Class Hierarchy

The CBaseControlVideo class implements the IBasicVideo interface and controls the video properties of a generic video window. Generally, a CBaseControlVideo object is a video renderer that draws video into a window on the display.

Many CBaseControlVideo member functions require only that the video renderer be connected to a filter graph. If it is not connected, member functions will return VFW_E_NOT_CONNECTED. Properties set on a video renderer persist between successive connections and disconnections. All applications should ensure that they reset the renderer properties before starting a presentation.

When working with video, the application can select a portion of the video to use. This portion is the source rectangle that the CBaseControlVideo object controls. CBaseControlVideo enables your application to set and retrieve the source rectangle. All the rectangles that CBaseControlVideo uses employ width and height values rather than right and bottom values. When no source rectangle has been set, the properties of the source rectangle return the full, native video size.

Protected Data MembersDescription
m_pFilterPointer to an owning media filter.
