midiOutGetDevCaps function

The midiOutGetDevCaps function queries a specified MIDI output device to determine its capabilities.

Syntax

MMRESULT midiOutGetDevCaps(
  UINT          uDeviceID,
  LPMIDIOUTCAPS pmoc,
  UINT          cbmoc
);

Parameters

uDeviceID

Identifier of the MIDI output device. The device identifier specified by this parameter varies from zero to one less than the number of devices present. The MIDI_MAPPER constant is also a valid device identifier.

This parameter can also be a properly cast device handle.

pmoc

Pointer to a MIDIOUTCAPS structure. This structure is filled with information about the capabilities of the device.

Return Value

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