ACMFILTERENUMCBW callback function

The acmFilterEnumCallback function specifies a callback function used with the acmFilterEnum function. The acmFilterEnumCallback name is a placeholder for an application-defined function name.


ACMFILTERENUMCBW Acmfilterenumcbw;

BOOL Acmfilterenumcbw(
  DWORD_PTR dwInstance,
  DWORD fdwSupport



Handle to the ACM driver identifier.


Pointer to an ACMFILTERDETAILS structure that contains the enumerated filter details for a filter tag.


Application-defined value specified in acmFilterEnum.


Driver-support flags specific to the driver identified by hadid for the specified filter. These flags are identical to the fdwSupport flags of the ACMDRIVERDETAILS structure, but they are specific to the filter that is being enumerated. This parameter can be a combination of the following values and identifies which operations the driver supports for the filter tag.

Value Meaning
ACMDRIVERDETAILS_SUPPORTF_ASYNC Driver supports asynchronous conversions with the specified filter tag.
ACMDRIVERDETAILS_SUPPORTF_CODEC Driver supports conversion between two different format tags while using the specified filter. For example, if a driver supports compression from WAVE_FORMAT_PCM to WAVE_FORMAT_ADPCM with the specified filter, this flag is set.
ACMDRIVERDETAILS_SUPPORTF_CONVERTER Driver supports conversion between two different formats of the same format tag while using the specified filter. For example, if a driver supports resampling of WAVE_FORMAT_PCM with the specified filter, this flag is set.
ACMDRIVERDETAILS_SUPPORTF_FILTER Driver supports a filter (modification of the data without changing any of the format attributes). For example, if a driver supports volume or echo operations on WAVE_FORMAT_PCM, this flag is set.
ACMDRIVERDETAILS_SUPPORTF_HARDWARE Driver supports hardware input, output, or both with the specified filter through a waveform-audio device. An application should use the acmMetrics function with the ACM_METRIC_HARDWARE_WAVE_INPUT and ACM_METRIC_HARDWARE_WAVE_OUTPUT metric indices to get the waveform-audio device identifiers associated with the supporting ACM driver.

Return Value

The callback function must return TRUE to continue enumeration or FALSE to stop enumeration.


The acmFilterEnum function will return MMSYSERR_NOERROR (zero) if no filters are to be enumerated. Moreover, the callback function will not be called.

The following functions should not be called from within the callback function: acmDriverAdd, acmDriverRemove, and acmDriverPriority.
