Return value



The GetImmediateContext2 method returns an ID3D11DeviceContext2 object that represents an immediate context, which is used to perform rendering that you want immediately submitted to a device. For most apps, an immediate context is the primary object that is used to draw your scene.

The GetImmediateContext2 method increments the reference count of the immediate context by one. Therefore, you must call Release on the returned interface pointer when you are done with it to avoid a memory leak.
