Creates a DXGI 1.1 factory that you can use to generate other DXGI objects.
HRESULT CreateDXGIFactory1( REFIID riid, void **ppFactory );
The globally unique identifier (GUID) of the IDXGIFactory1 object referenced by the ppFactory parameter.
Address of a pointer to an IDXGIFactory1 object.
Returns S_OK if successful; an error code otherwise. For a list of error codes, see DXGI_ERROR.
If the CreateDXGIFactory1 function succeeds, the reference count on the IDXGIFactory1 interface is incremented. To avoid a memory leak, when you finish using the interface, call the IDXGIFactory1::Release method to release the interface.
This entry point is not supported by DXGI 1.0, which shipped in Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008. DXGI 1.1 support is required, which is available on Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, and as an update to Windows Vista with Service Pack 2 (SP2) (KB 971644) and Windows Server 2008 (KB 971512).
- Adapter with the output on which the desktop primary is displayed. This adapter corresponds with an index of zero.
- Adapters with outputs.
- Adapters without outputs.
Creating a DXGI 1.1 Factory
The following code example demonstrates how to create a DXGI 1.1 factory. This example uses the __uuidof() intrinsic to obtain the REFIID, or GUID, of the IDXGIFactory1 interface.
IDXGIFactory1 * pFactory; HRESULT hr = CreateDXGIFactory1(__uuidof(IDXGIFactory1), (void**)(&pFactory) );
