NtGdiDdCreateDirectDrawObject function

[This function is subject to change with each operating system revision. Instead, use the 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.]

Creates a kernel-side representation of the Microsoft DirectDraw object.

Syntax


HANDLE APIENTRY NtGdiDdCreateDirectDrawObject(
  _In_ HDC hdc
);

Parameters

hdc [in]

Any DC display device for which the DirectDraw object should be created.

Return value

If successful, this function returns a handle to the kernel-mode object representation; otherwise it returns NULL.

Remarks

Applications are advised to use the DirectDraw and Direct3D APIs to create and manage graphics device objects. These constructs abstract the device creation process in a simplified and operating-system-independent way.
