The midiOutUnprepareHeader function cleans up the preparation performed by the midiOutPrepareHeader function.
MMRESULT midiOutUnprepareHeader( HMIDIOUT hmo, LPMIDIHDR lpMidiOutHdr, UINT cbMidiOutHdr );
Handle to the MIDI output device. This parameter can also be the handle of a MIDI stream cast to HMIDIOUT.
Pointer to a MIDIHDR structure identifying the buffer to be cleaned up.
Size, in bytes, of the MIDIHDR structure.
Returns MMSYSERR_NOERROR if successful or an error otherwise. Possible error values include the following.
|MIDIERR_STILLPLAYING||The buffer pointed to by lpMidiOutHdr is still in the queue.|
|MMSYSERR_INVALHANDLE||The specified device handle is invalid.|
|MMSYSERR_INVALPARAM||The specified pointer or structure is invalid.|
This function is complementary to the midiOutPrepareHeader function. You must call midiOutUnprepareHeader before freeing the buffer. After passing a buffer to the device driver with the midiOutLongMsg function, you must wait until the device driver is finished with the buffer before calling midiOutUnprepareHeader.
Unpreparing a buffer that has not been prepared has no effect, and the function returns MMSYSERR_NOERROR.
