Microsoft DirectX 9.0

IDirectXFileData Interface

Applications use the methods of the IDirectXFileData interface to build or to access the immediate hierarchy of the data object. Template restrictions determine the hierarchy. Data types allowed by the template are called optional members. The optional members are not required, but an object might miss important information without them. These optional members are saved as children of the data object. The children can be another data object, a reference to an earlier data object, or a binary object.

IDirectXFileData Members

Retrieves the next child data object, data reference object, or binary object in the DirectX file.
