IRenderEngine::GetVendorString method

Note

[Deprecated. This API may be removed from future releases of Windows.]

 

The GetVendorString method retrieves the name of the vendor. For the render engine objects that are provided by DirectShow, the vendor string is "Microsoft Corporation".

Syntax

HRESULT GetVendorString(
  [out, retval] BSTR *pVendorID
);

Parameters

pVendorID [out, retval]

Receives a BSTR containing the vendor string.

Return value

If this method succeeds, it returns S_OK. Otherwise, it returns an HRESULT error code.

Remarks

The method allocates memory for the string. The application must call SysFreeString to free the memory.
