Members Table

The following table lists the members exposed by the object.


Event Description
Disposing Occurs when the Dispose method is called or when the Buffer object is finalized and collected by the garbage collector of the Microsoft .NET common language runtime.


Method Description
Buffer Initializes a new instance of the Buffer class.
Clone Duplicates the buffer object.
Dispose Immediately releases the unmanaged resources used by the Buffer object.
Equals Returns a value that indicates whether the current instance is equal to a specified object.
Finalize Allows the Buffer object to free resources before it is destroyed by the garbage collector.
GetCurrentPosition Retrieves the position of the play and write cursors in the sound buffer.
GetHashCode Returns the hash code for the current instance.
GetObjectByValue This member supports the infrastructure for Microsoft DirectX 9.0 for Managed Code and is not intended to be used directly from your code.
static (Shared in Visual Basic) op_Equality Compares the current instance of a class to another instance to determine whether they are the same.
static (Shared in Visual Basic) op_Inequality Compares the current instance of a class to another instance to determine whether they are different.
Play Begin playing the sound buffer, starting at the play cursor.
raise_Disposing Raises the Buffer.Disposing event when called from within a derived class.
Read Reads the current data in the buffer.
Restore Restores the memory allocation for a lost sound buffer.
SetCurrentPosition Sets the position of the play cursor, which is the point at which the next byte of data is read from the buffer.
Stop Causes the sound buffer to stop playing.
Write Writes data to the buffer.


Property Description
Caps Retrieves the capabilities of the buffer object.
Disposed Gets a value that indicates whether the object is disposed.
Format Retrieves or sets a description of the sound data format in the buffer.
Frequency Retrieves or sets the frequency, in samples per second, at which the buffer is playing.
NotVirtualized Retrieves a value that indicates whether the buffer is virtualized.
Pan Retrieves or sets the relative volume of the left and right audio channels.
PlayPosition Retrieves the position of the play cursor in the sound buffer.
Status Retrieves the status of the sound buffer.
Volume Retrieves or sets the attenuation of the sound.
WritePosition Retrieves the position of the write cursor in the sound buffer.
