D3DXCreateCubeTextureFromResource Function

Creates a cube texture from a resource.


HRESULT D3DXCreateCubeTextureFromResource(      

    LPDIRECT3DDEVICE9 pDevice,     HMODULE hSrcModule,     LPCTSTR pSrcResource,     LPDIRECT3DCUBETEXTURE9 *ppCubeTexture );


[in] Pointer to an IDirect3DDevice9 interface, representing the device to be associated with the cube texture.
[in] Handle to the module where the resource is located, or NULL for the module associated with the image the operating system used to create the current process.
[in] Pointer to a string that specifies the resource name. If the compiler settings require Unicode, the data type LPCTSTR resolves to LPCWSTR. Otherwise, the string data type resolves to LPCSTR. See Remarks.
[out] Address of a pointer to an IDirect3DCubeTexture9 interface, representing the created cube texture object.

Return Value

If the function succeeds, the return value is D3D_OK.

If the function fails, the return value can be one of the following values.

D3DERR_INVALIDCALLThe method call is invalid. For example, a method's parameter may have an invalid value.
D3DERR_NOTAVAILABLEThis device does not support the queried technique.
D3DERR_OUTOFVIDEOMEMORYMicrosoft?Direct3D?does not have enough display memory to perform the operation.
D3DXERR_INVALIDDATAThe data is invalid.
E_OUTOFMEMORYDirect3D could not allocate sufficient memory to complete the call.


The compiler setting also determines the function version. If Unicode is defined, the function call resolves to D3DXCreateCubeTextureFromResourceW. Otherwise, the function call resolves to D3DXCreateCubeTextureFromResourceA because ANSI strings are being used.

This function supports the following file formats: .bmp, .dds, .dib, .jpg, .png, and .tga.

Note that a resource created with this function will be placed in the memory class denoted by D3DPOOL_MANAGED.

D3DXCreateCubeTextureFromResource uses the Microsoft DirectDraw?surface (DDS) file format. The DXTex Tool enables you to generate a cube map from other file formats and save it in the DDS file format.
