Return Value

Type: Microsoft.WindowsMobile.DirectX.Direct3D.Caps
A Caps object that contains information that describes the device's capabilities.


The application should not assume the persistence of vertex-processing capabilities across Device objects. The particular capabilities that a physical device exposes might depend on parameters supplied to Device. For example, the capabilities might yield different vertex-processing capabilities before and after creating a Device with hardware vertex processing enabled. For more information, see Caps.
