ID3D11ShaderReflection::GetConstantBufferByName method

Get a constant buffer by name.

Syntax

ID3D11ShaderReflectionConstantBuffer * GetConstantBufferByName(
  LPCSTR Name
);

Parameters

Name

Type: LPCSTR

The constant-buffer name.

Return Value

Type: ID3D11ShaderReflectionConstantBuffer*

A pointer to a constant buffer (see ID3D11ShaderReflectionConstantBuffer Interface).

Remarks

A constant buffer supplies either scalar constants or texture constants to a shader. A shader can use one or more constant buffers. For best performance, separate constants into buffers based on the frequency they are updated.

This method's interface is hosted in the out-of-box DLL D3DCompiler_xx.dll.
