DdReleaseDC function

[This function is subject to change with each operating system revision. Instead, use the Microsoft DirectDraw and Microsoft Direct3DAPIs; these APIs insulate applications from such operating system changes, and hide many other difficulties involved in interacting directly with display drivers. ]

Wrapper for the NtGdiDdReleaseDC function and releases a device context (DC) previously obtained through DdGetDC or GdiEntry7.

GdiEntry8 is defined as an alias for this function.

Syntax


BOOL APIENTRY DdReleaseDC(
   LPDDRAWI_DDRAWSURFACE_LCL pSurfaceLocal
);

Parameters

pSurfaceLocal

Pointer to the DirectDraw surface for which a DC was obtained.

Return value

If successful, this function returns TRUE; otherwise it returns FALSE.

Remarks

Applications that need to obtain a DC for a DirectDraw surface can use IDirectDrawSurface7::GetDC, which exposes this functionality in a manner independent of the operating system.

Requirements

Minimum supported client

Windows 2000 Professional [desktop apps only]
