This method retrieves data from a track inside the control segment.

  REFGUID rguidType,
  DWORD dwGroupBits,
  DWORD dwIndex,
  MUSIC_TIME mtTime,
  MUSIC_TIME* pmtNext,
  void* pParam


  • rguidType
    Reference to (C++) or address of (C) the identifier of the type of data to obtain. For more information, see Track Parameter Types.
  • dwGroupBits
    Group that the desired track is in (see Remarks). Set this value to 0xFFFFFFFF for all groups.
  • dwIndex
    Index of the track in the group from which to obtain the data.
  • mtTime
    Time from which to obtain the data, in performance time.
  • pmtNext
    Address of a variable to receive the time (relative to mtTime) until which the data is valid. If this returns a value of 0, either the data is always valid, or it is not known when it might become invalid. If this information is not needed, pmtNext can be set to NULL. See Remarks.
  • pParam
    Address of an allocated structure in which the data is to be returned. The structure must be of the appropriate kind and size for the data type identified by rguidType.

Return Values

If the method succeeds, the return value is S_OK.

If it fails, the method can return one of the following error values:



Normally, the primary segment is the control segment. However, a secondary segment can be designated as a control segment when it is played. For more information about control segments, see Segments and DMUS_SEGF_FLAGS.

The data returned in *pParam can become invalid before the time returned in *pmtNext if another control segment is cued.

Each track belongs to one or more groups, and each group is represented by a bit in dwGroupBits. For more information, see IDirectMusicSegment::InsertTrack and Identifying the Track.
