ReleaseDC (Windows CE 5.0)
This function releases a device context (DC), freeing it for use by other applications. The effect of ReleaseDC depends on the type of device context.
int ReleaseDC( HWND hWnd, HDC hDC );
- Handle to the window whose device context is to be released.
- Handle to the device context to be released.
The return value specifies whether the device context is released.
1 indicates that the device context is released.
Zero indicates that the device context is not released.
An application cannot use the ReleaseDC function to release a device context that was created by calling the CreateDC function; instead, it must use the DeleteDC function.
OS Versions: Windows CE 1.0 and later.
Link Library: Coredll.lib, Winmgr.lib.
