DirectDraw Return Values

Windows CE .NET

Errors are represented by negative values and cannot be combined. This table lists the values that can be returned by all methods of the IDirectDraw4, IDirectDrawSurface5, IDirectDrawPalette, IDirectDrawClipper, IDDVideoPortContainer, and IDirectDrawVideoPort interfaces. For a list of the error codes that each method can return, see the method description.

Return code Description
DD_OK The request completed successfully.
DDERR_ALREADYINITIALIZED The object has already been initialized.
DDERR_BLTFASTCANTCLIP A DirectDrawClipper object is attached to a source surface that has passed into a call to the IDirectDrawSurface5::BltFast method.
DDERR_CANNOTATTACHSURFACE A surface cannot be attached to another requested surface.
DDERR_CANNOTDETACHSURFACE A surface cannot be detached from another requested surface.
DDERR_CANTCREATEDC Windows cannot create any more device contexts (DCs), or a DC was requested for a palette-indexed surface when the surface had no palette and the display mode was not palette-indexed (that is, DirectDraw cannot select a proper palette into the DC).
DDERR_CANTDUPLICATE Primary and 3-D surfaces, or surfaces that are implicitly created, cannot be duplicated.
DDERR_CANTLOCKSURFACE Access to this surface is refused because an attempt was made to lock the primary surface without DCI support.
DDERR_CANTPAGELOCK An attempt to page lock a surface failed. Page lock will not work on a display-memory surface or an emulated primary surface.
DDERR_CANTPAGEUNLOCK An attempt to page unlock a surface failed. Page unlock will not work on a display-memory surface or an emulated primary surface.
DDERR_CLIPPERISUSINGHWND An attempt was made to set a clip list for a DirectDrawClipper object that is already monitoring a window handle.
DDERR_COLORKEYNOTSET No source color key is specified for this operation.
DDERR_CURRENTLYNOTAVAIL No support is currently available.
DDERR_DCALREADYCREATED A device context (DC) has already been returned for this surface. Only one DC can be retrieved for each surface.
DDERR_DEVICEDOESNTOWNSURFACE Surfaces created by one DirectDraw device cannot be used directly by another DirectDraw device.
DDERR_DIRECTDRAWALREADYCREATED A DirectDraw object representing this driver has already been created for this process.

DDERR_EXPIRED The data has expired and is no longer valid.
DDERR_GENERIC There is an undefined error condition.
DDERR_HEIGHTALIGN The height of the provided rectangle is not a multiple of the required alignment.
DDERR_HWNDALREADYSET The DirectDraw cooperative level window handle has already been set. It cannot be reset while the process has surfaces or palettes created.
DDERR_HWNDSUBCLASSED DirectDraw is prevented from restoring the state because the DirectDraw cooperative level window handle has been subclassed.
