ICGetState macro

The ICGetState macro queries a video compression driver to return its current configuration in a block of memory. You can use this macro or explicitly call the ICM_GETSTATE message.

Syntax

void ICGetState(
   hic,
   pv,
   cb
);

Parameters

hic

Handle of the compressor.

pv

Pointer to a block of memory to contain the current configuration information. You can specify NULL for this parameter to determine the amount of memory required for the configuration information, as in ICGetStateSize.

cb

Size, in bytes, of the block of memory.

Return Value

None

Remarks

The ICGetStateSize macro returns the number of bytes used by the state data.

The structure used to represent configuration information is driver specific and is defined by the driver.

Use ICGetStateSize before calling the ICGetState macro to determine the size of buffer to allocate for the call.
