DirectDraw Reference (Compact 2013)


This section describes the programming elements for the Windows Embedded Compact DirectDraw feature. The API is based on the flexible Component Object Model (COM), but is not technically a COM component.

At its core, DirectDraw serves as a video memory manager. It allocates video memory and it performs operations on video memory, including bits to and from the screen and system memory. It also contains low-level live video functionality.
