D3DImage.SetBackBuffer D3DImage.SetBackBuffer D3DImage.SetBackBuffer Method

Definition

Assigns a Direct3D surface as the source of the back buffer.

Overloads

SetBackBuffer(D3DResourceType, IntPtr) SetBackBuffer(D3DResourceType, IntPtr) SetBackBuffer(D3DResourceType, IntPtr)

Assigns a Direct3D surface as the source of the back buffer.

SetBackBuffer(D3DResourceType, IntPtr, Boolean) SetBackBuffer(D3DResourceType, IntPtr, Boolean) SetBackBuffer(D3DResourceType, IntPtr, Boolean)

Assigns a Direct3D surface as the source of the back buffer.

SetBackBuffer(D3DResourceType, IntPtr) SetBackBuffer(D3DResourceType, IntPtr) SetBackBuffer(D3DResourceType, IntPtr)

Assigns a Direct3D surface as the source of the back buffer.

public:
 void SetBackBuffer(System::Windows::Interop::D3DResourceType backBufferType, IntPtr backBuffer);
public void SetBackBuffer (System.Windows.Interop.D3DResourceType backBufferType, IntPtr backBuffer);
Public Sub SetBackBuffer (backBufferType As D3DResourceType, backBuffer As IntPtr)
Parameters
backBufferType
D3DResourceType D3DResourceType D3DResourceType

The type of Direct3D surface. Must be a valid D3DResourceType.

backBuffer
IntPtr IntPtr IntPtr

The Direct3D surface to assign as the back buffer.

Exceptions

The creation parameters for backBuffer do not meet the requirements for the backBufferType-or-The backBuffer device is not valid.

Examples

The following code example shows how to call the SetBackBuffer method to assign a Direct3D surface. For more information, see Walkthrough: Hosting Direct3D9 Content in WPF.

d3dimg.Lock();
// Repeatedly calling SetBackBuffer with the same IntPtr is 
// a no-op. There is no performance penalty.
d3dimg.SetBackBuffer(D3DResourceType.IDirect3DSurface9, pSurface);
HRESULT.Check(Render());
d3dimg.AddDirtyRect(new Int32Rect(0, 0, d3dimg.PixelWidth, d3dimg.PixelHeight));
d3dimg.Unlock();

Remarks

Call the SetBackBuffer method to assign a Direct3D surface to the back buffer.

Note

Performance depends greatly on the settings of the Direct3D surface. For more information, see Performance Considerations for Direct3D9 and WPF Interoperability.

Calling the SetBackBuffer(D3DResourceType, IntPtr) overload is identical to calling the SetBackBuffer(D3DResourceType, IntPtr, Boolean) overload with the enableSoftwareFallback parameter set to false. When you call SetBackBuffer(D3DResourceType, IntPtr) or call SetBackBuffer(D3DResourceType, IntPtr, Boolean) with the enableSoftwareFallback parameter set to false, the rendering system releases its reference to the back buffer when front buffer becomes unavailable and nothing is displayed. When the front buffer is available again, the rendering system raises the IsFrontBufferAvailableChanged event to notify your WPF application. You can create an event handler for the IsFrontBufferAvailableChanged event to restart rendering again with a valid Direct3D surface. To restart rendering, you must call SetBackBuffer.

The following list shows the required back buffer settings for the IDirect3DSurface9 type.

  • D3DFMT_A8R8G8B8 or D3DFMT_X8R8G8B8

  • D3DUSAGE_RENDERTARGET

  • D3DPOOL_DEFAULT

Multisampling is allowed on IDirect3DSurface9Ex surfaces only.

Parameters
backBufferType
D3DResourceType D3DResourceType D3DResourceType

The type of Direct3D surface. Must be a valid D3DResourceType.

backBuffer
IntPtr IntPtr IntPtr

The Direct3D surface to assign as the back buffer.

enableSoftwareFallback
Boolean Boolean Boolean

true to fall back on software rendering; otherwise, false.

Remarks

When you call the SetBackBuffer(D3DResourceType, IntPtr) overload or call the SetBackBuffer(D3DResourceType, IntPtr, Boolean) overload with the enableSoftwareFallback parameter set to false, the rendering system releases its reference to the back buffer when the front buffer becomes unavailable and nothing is displayed. When the front buffer is available again, the rendering system raises the IsFrontBufferAvailableChanged event to notify your WPF application. You can create an event handler for the IsFrontBufferAvailableChanged event to restart rendering again with a valid Direct3D surface. To restart rendering, you must call SetBackBuffer.

When you call SetBackBuffer(D3DResourceType, IntPtr, Boolean) with the enableSoftwareFallback parameter set to true, the rendering system retains its reference to the back buffer when the front buffer becomes unavailable, so there is no need to call SetBackBuffer when the front buffer is available again. There may be situations where the user’s device becomes unavailable. When that occurs, call SetBackBuffer to release WPF’s reference to the back buffer. If you need to reset your device, call SetBackBuffer with backBuffer set to null, and then call SetBackBuffer again with backBuffer set to a valid Direct3D surface.

The following list shows the required back buffer settings for the IDirect3DSurface9 type.

  • D3DFMT_A8R8G8B8 or D3DFMT_X8R8G8B8

  • D3DUSAGE_RENDERTARGET

  • D3DPOOL_DEFAULT

Multisampling is allowed on IDirect3DSurface9Ex surfaces only.
