member Present : unit -> unit 


Exception Condition

Internal driver error. Applications should generally shut down when receiving this error.


The method call is invalid. For example, a method's parameter may contain an invalid value.


Direct3D could not allocate sufficient memory to complete the call.


This method is a shortcut to Present for a Device. The swap chain method has been updated to include a flag that allows the application to request that the method return immediately when the driver reports that it cannot schedule a presentation.

If necessary, a stretch operation is applied to transfer the pixels in the source rectangle to the destination rectangle in the target window's client area.

The Present method of a Device fails if it is called between its BeginScene and EndScene pair; unless the render target is not the current render target such as the back buffer that results from the creation of an additional swap chain.
