CBaseControlWindow Class

CBaseControlWindow Class Hierarchy

The CBaseControlWindow class implements the IVideoWindow interface and controls external access to its associated filter. You must synchronize the CBaseControlWindow object with the filter by passing it a pointer to a critical section synchronization object. For more information about critical section synchronization objects, see the Platform SDK. The CBaseControlWindow class provides a number of methods that return property settings without dealing with this critical section. For example, calling CBaseControlWindow::get_AutoShow to retrieve the value of the m_bAutoShow data member locks the critical section. The filter might already have a locked internal critical section, however, which could violate the filter's lock hierarchy. Instead, calling the CBaseControlWindow::IsAutoShowEnabled member function returns the required value without affecting the critical section.

All CBaseControlWindow implemented IVideoWindow methods require that the filter be connected correctly with its upstream filter. For this reason, class objects require a synchronization pin, which you set by calling the CBaseControlWindow::SetControlWindowPin method. Whenever you call an IVideoWindow method, the CBaseControlWindow object checks that the pin is still connected.

m_BorderColour Color of the current window border.
m_hwndDrain Window handle to which messages received are posted.
m_hwndOwner Owning window.
m_pFilter Pointer to the owning media filter.
m_pInterfaceLock Externally defined critical section.
m_pPin Control of the media types for connection.

Member Functions

CBaseControlWindow Constructs a CBaseControlWindow object.
DoGetWindowStyle Retrieves either the typical or extended window styles.
DoSetWindowStyle Sets the typical or extended window styles.
GetBorderColour Retrieves the current border color. This is a helper member function.
GetOwnerWindow Retrieves the owning window. This is a helper member function.
IsAutoShowEnabled Retrieves information about whether the video window automatically appears when the rendering filter pauses or runs.
IsCursorHidden Retrieves the current state of the m_bCursorHidden data member without locking the critical section. This is a helper member function.
PossiblyEatMessage Distributes messages to the parent window.
SetControlWindowPin Notifies the object of the pin to which it applies.
