D3DXCreateCubeTextureFromFile function

Creates a cube texture from a file.

Syntax


HRESULT D3DXCreateCubeTextureFromFile(
  _In_  LPDIRECT3DDEVICE9      pDevice,
  _In_  LPCTSTR                pSrcFile,
  _Out_ LPDIRECT3DCUBETEXTURE9 *ppCubeTexture
);

Parameters

pDevice [in]

Type: LPDIRECT3DDEVICE9

Pointer to an IDirect3DDevice9 interface, representing the device to be associated with the cube texture.

pSrcFile [in]

Type: LPCTSTR

Pointer to a string that specifies the filename. If the compiler settings require Unicode, the data type LPCTSTR resolves to LPCWSTR. Otherwise, the string data type resolves to LPCSTR. See Remarks.

ppCubeTexture [out]

Type: LPDIRECT3DCUBETEXTURE9*

Address of a pointer to an IDirect3DCubeTexture9 interface, representing the created cube texture object.

Return value

Type: HRESULT

If the function succeeds, the return value is D3D_OK. If the function fails, the return value can be one of the following values: D3DERR_INVALIDCALL, D3DERR_NOTAVAILABLE, D3DERR_OUTOFVIDEOMEMORY, D3DXERR_INVALIDDATA, E_OUTOFMEMORY.

Remarks

The compiler setting also determines the function version. If Unicode is defined, the function call resolves to D3DXCreateCubeTextureFromFileW. Otherwise, the function call resolves to D3DXCreateCubeTextureFromFileA because ANSI strings are being used.

The function is equivalent to D3DXCreateCubeTextureFromFileEx(pDevice, pSrcFile, D3DX_DEFAULT, D3DX_DEFAULT, 0, D3DFMT_UNKNOWN, D3DPOOL_MANAGED, D3DX_DEFAULT, D3DX_DEFAULT, 0, NULL, NULL, ppCubeTexture).

This function supports the following file formats: .bmp, .dds, .dib, .hdr, .jpg, .pfm, .png, .ppm, and .tga. See D3DXIMAGE_FILEFORMAT.

Note that a resource created with this function when called from a IDirect3DDevice9 object will be placed in the memory class denoted by D3DPOOL_MANAGED. When this method is called from a IDirect3DDevice9Ex object the resource will be placed in the memory class denoted by D3DPOOL_DEFAULT.

Filtering is automatically applied to a texture created using this method. The filtering is equivalent to D3DX_FILTER_TRIANGLE | D3DX_FILTER_DITHER in D3DX_FILTER.

D3DXCreateCubeTextureFromFile uses the DirectDraw surface (DDS) file format. The DirectX Texture Editor (Dxtex.exe) enables you to generate a cube map from other file formats and save it in the DDS file format. You can get Dxtex.exe and learn about it from the DirectX SDK.
