Validation (Direct3D 9)

Validation is performed during the effect compile. To validate the current technique, specify NULL as the technique handle to be validated.

Validation will fail for any of the following:

  • If the specified technique handle does not exist.
  • If the application of any state in any pass of the technique fails.
  • If device validation fails after the application of all the states in any pass of the technique.
  • If the PIXELSHADER or VERTEXSHADER effect states are assigned invalid shaders in any pass of the technique.
  • If the device caps do not support cube mapping, and a TEXTURE effect state is assigned a value of type textureCUBE in any pass of the technique.
  • If the device caps do not support volume mapping and a TEXTURE effect state is assigned a value of type texture3D in any pass of the technique.
