Microsoft DirectX 9.0

ID3DXFont::Begin Method

Prepares a device for drawing text.



Return Value

If the method succeeds, the return value is D3D_OK.

If the method 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.
D3DXERR_INVALIDDATAThe data is invalid.


This method is optional. If a DrawText method is called outside of a Begin and ID3DXFont::End pair, then Microsoft?Direct3D?will call Begin and End.
