midiInUnprepareHeader function

The midiInUnprepareHeader function cleans up the preparation performed by the midiInPrepareHeader function.

Syntax

MMRESULT midiInUnprepareHeader(
  HMIDIIN   hmi,
  LPMIDIHDR pmh,
  UINT      cbmh
);

Parameters

hmi

Handle to the MIDI input device.

pmh

Pointer to a MIDIHDR structure identifying the buffer to be cleaned up.

cbmh

Size of the MIDIHDR structure.

Return Value

Returns MMSYSERR_NOERROR if successful or an error otherwise. Possible error values include the following.

Return code Description
MIDIERR_STILLPLAYING
The buffer pointed to by lpMidiInHdr is still in the queue.
MMSYSERR_INVALPARAM
The specified pointer or structure is invalid.
MMSYSERR_INVALHANDLE
The specified device handle is invalid.

Remarks

This function is complementary to midiInPrepareHeader. You must use this function before freeing the buffer. After passing a buffer to the device driver by using the midiInAddBuffer function, you must wait until the driver is finished with the buffer before using midiInUnprepareHeader. Unpreparing a buffer that has not been prepared has no effect, and the function returns MMSYSERR_NOERROR.
