mixerGetID function (mmeapi.h)

The mixerGetID function retrieves the device identifier for a mixer device associated with a specified device handle.

Syntax

MMRESULT mixerGetID(
  HMIXEROBJ hmxobj,
  UINT      *puMxId,
  DWORD     fdwId
);

Parameters

hmxobj

Handle to the audio mixer object to map to a mixer device identifier.

puMxId

Pointer to a variable that receives the mixer device identifier. If no mixer device is available for the hmxobj object, the value -1 is placed in this location and the MMSYSERR_NODRIVER error value is returned.

fdwId

Flags for mapping the mixer object hmxobj. The following values are defined.

Value Meaning
MIXER_OBJECTF_AUX The hmxobj parameter is an auxiliary device identifier in the range of zero to one less than the number of devices returned by the auxGetNumDevs function.
MIXER_OBJECTF_HMIDIIN The hmxobj parameter is the handle of a MIDI input device. This handle must have been returned by the midiInOpen function.
MIXER_OBJECTF_HMIDIOUT The hmxobj parameter is the handle of a MIDI output device. This handle must have been returned by the midiOutOpen function.
MIXER_OBJECTF_HMIXER The hmxobj parameter is a mixer device handle returned by the mixerOpen function. This flag is optional.
MIXER_OBJECTF_HWAVEIN The hmxobj parameter is a waveform-audio input handle returned by the waveInOpen function.
MIXER_OBJECTF_HWAVEOUT The hmxobj parameter is a waveform-audio output handle returned by the waveOutOpen function.
MIXER_OBJECTF_MIDIIN The hmxobj parameter is the identifier of a MIDI input device. This identifier must be in the range of zero to one less than the number of devices returned by the midiInGetNumDevs function.
MIXER_OBJECTF_MIDIOUT The hmxobj parameter is the identifier of a MIDI output device. This identifier must be in the range of zero to one less than the number of devices returned by the midiOutGetNumDevs function.
MIXER_OBJECTF_MIXER The hmxobj parameter is the identifier of a mixer device in the range of zero to one less than the number of devices returned by the mixerGetNumDevs function. This flag is optional.
MIXER_OBJECTF_WAVEIN The hmxobj parameter is the identifier of a waveform-audio input device in the range of zero to one less than the number of devices returned by the waveInGetNumDevs function.
MIXER_OBJECTF_WAVEOUT The hmxobj parameter is the identifier of a waveform-audio output device in the range of zero to one less than the number of devices returned by the waveOutGetNumDevs function.

Return value

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

Return code Description
MMSYSERR_BADDEVICEID
The hmxobj parameter specifies an invalid device identifier.
MMSYSERR_INVALFLAG
One or more flags are invalid.
MMSYSERR_INVALHANDLE
The hmxobj parameter specifies an invalid handle.
MMSYSERR_INVALPARAM
One or more parameters are invalid.
MMSYSERR_NODRIVER
No audio mixer device is available for the object specified by hmxobj. The location referenced by puMxId also contains the value -1.
