D3DXCreateMesh function

Creates a mesh object using a declarator.

Syntax

HRESULT D3DXCreateMesh(
  _In_        DWORD               NumFaces,
  _In_        DWORD               NumVertices,
  _In_        DWORD               Options,
  _In_  const LPD3DVERTEXELEMENT9 *pDeclaration,
  _In_        LPDIRECT3DDEVICE9   pD3DDevice,
  _Out_       LPD3DXMESH          *ppMesh
);

Parameters

NumFaces [in]

Type: DWORD

Number of faces for the mesh. The valid range for this number is greater than 0, and one less than the maximum DWORD (typically 65534), because the last index is reserved.

NumVertices [in]

Type: DWORD

Number of vertices for the mesh. This parameter must be greater than 0.

Options [in]

Type: DWORD

Combination of one or more flags from the D3DXMESH enumeration, specifying options for the mesh.

pDeclaration [in]

Type: const LPD3DVERTEXELEMENT9*

Array of D3DVERTEXELEMENT9 elements, describing the vertex format for the returned mesh. This parameter must map directly to a flexible vertex format (FVF).

pD3DDevice [in]

Type: LPDIRECT3DDEVICE9

Pointer to an IDirect3DDevice9 interface, the device object to be associated with the mesh.

ppMesh [out]

Type: LPD3DXMESH*

Address of a pointer to an ID3DXMesh interface, representing the created mesh object.

Return value

Type: HRESULT

If the function succeeds, the return value is D3D_OK. If the function fails, the return value can be one of the following: D3DERR_INVALIDCALL, E_OUTOFMEMORY.
