MCI_SIGNAL command

The MCI_SIGNAL command sets a specified position in the workspace. Digital-video devices recognize this command. MCIAVI supports only one active signal at a time.

To send this command, call the mciSendCommand function with the following parameters.



MCIERROR mciSendCommand(
  MCIDEVICEID wDeviceID, 
  MCI_SIGNAL, 
  DWORD dwFlags, 
  (DWORD) (LPMCI_DGV_SIGNAL_PARMS) lpSignal
);


Parameters

wDeviceID

Device identifier of the MCI device that is to receive the command message.

dwFlags

MCI_NOTIFY, MCI_WAIT, or MCI_TEST. For information about these flags, see The Wait, Notify, and Test Flags.

lpSignal

Pointer to an MCI_DGV_SIGNAL_PARMS structure.

Return Value

Returns zero if successful or an error otherwise.

Remarks

The window whose handle you specify in the dwCallback member of the MCI_DGV_SIGNAL_PARMS structure receives the MM_MCISIGNAL message.

The following flags apply to digital-video devices:

MCI_DGV_SIGNAL_AT

A signal position is included in the dwPosition member of the structure identified by lpSignal.

MCI_DGV_SIGNAL_CANCEL

Removes the signal position specified by the value associated with MCI_DGV_SIGNAL_USERVAL.

MCI_DGV_SIGNAL_EVERY

A signal-period value is included in the dwPeriod member of the structure identified by lpSignal.

MCI_DGV_SIGNAL_POSITION

The device will send the position value with the Windows message instead of the user-specified value.

A data value is included in the dwUserParm member of the structure identified by lpSignal. The data value associated with this request is reported back with the Windows message.
