mixerGetControlDetails

The mixerGetControlDetails function retrieves details about a single control associated with an audio line.

MMRESULT mixerGetControlDetails(
  HMIXEROBJ hmxobj,             
  LPMIXERCONTROLDETAILS pmxcd,  
  DWORD fdwDetails              
);

Parameters

hmxobj

Handle to the mixer device object being queried.

pmxcd

Pointer to a MIXERCONTROLDETAILS structure, which is filled with state information about the control.

fdwDetails

Flags for retrieving control details. The following values are defined.

Value Meaning
MIXER_GETCONTROLDETAILSF_LISTTEXT The paDetails member of the MIXERCONTROLDETAILS structure points to one or more MIXERCONTROLDETAILS_LISTTEXT structures to receive text labels for multiple-item controls. An application must get all list text items for a multiple-item control at once. This flag cannot be used with MIXERCONTROL_CONTROLTYPE_CUSTOM controls.
MIXER_GETCONTROLDETAILSF_VALUE Current values for a control are retrieved. The paDetails member of the MIXERCONTROLDETAILS structure points to one or more details structures appropriate for the control class.
MIXER_OBJECTF_AUX The hmxobj parameter is an auxiliary device identifier in the range of zero to one less than the number of devices returned by the auxGetNumDevs function.
MIXER_OBJECTF_HMIDIIN The hmxobj parameter is the handle of a MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) input device. This handle must have been returned by the midiInOpen function.
MIXER_OBJECTF_HMIDIOUT The hmxobj parameter is the handle of a MIDI output device. This handle must have been returned by the midiOutOpen function.
MIXER_OBJECTF_HMIXER The hmxobj parameter is a mixer device handle returned by the mixerOpen function. This flag is optional.
MIXER_OBJECTF_HWAVEIN The hmxobj parameter is a waveform-audio input handle returned by the waveInOpen function.
MIXER_OBJECTF_HWAVEOUT The hmxobj parameter is a waveform-audio output handle returned by the waveOutOpen function.
MIXER_OBJECTF_MIDIIN The hmxobj parameter is the identifier of a MIDI input device. This identifier must be in the range of zero to one less than the number of devices returned by the midiInGetNumDevs function.
MIXER_OBJECTF_MIDIOUT The hmxobj parameter is the identifier of a MIDI output device. This identifier must be in the range of zero to one less than the number of devices returned by the midiOutGetNumDevs function.
MIXER_OBJECTF_MIXER The hmxobj parameter is the identifier of a mixer device in the range of zero to one less than the number of devices returned by the mixerGetNumDevs function. This flag is optional.
MIXER_OBJECTF_WAVEIN The hmxobj parameter is the identifier of a waveform-audio input device in the range of zero to one less than the number of devices returned by the waveInGetNumDevs function.
MIXER_OBJECTF_WAVEOUT The hmxobj parameter is the identifier of a waveform-audio output device in the range of zero to one less than the number of devices returned by the waveOutGetNumDevs function.

Return Values

Returns MMSYSERR_NOERROR if successful or an error otherwise. Possible error values include the following.

Value Description
MIXERR_INVALCONTROL The control reference is invalid.
MMSYSERR_BADDEVICEID The hmxobj parameter specifies an invalid device identifier.
MMSYSERR_INVALFLAG One or more flags are invalid.
MMSYSERR_INVALHANDLE The hmxobj parameter specifies an invalid handle.
MMSYSERR_INVALPARAM One or more parameters are invalid.
MMSYSERR_NODRIVER No mixer device is available for the object specified by hmxobj.

Remarks

All members of the MIXERCONTROLDETAILS structure must be initialized before calling this function.
