The put_BackgroundPalette method sets a flag to realize the palette in the background.


HRESULT put_BackgroundPalette(
    long BackgroundPalette



Automation Boolean flag (0 is off, –1 is on).

Return Value

Returns an HRESULT value.


To play a video within another application or document, the application might want to use its own palette. It can ask that the video use the current foreground palette rather than its own as the background palette by setting this flag to –1. If this is set to 0, the window will install and realize its own preferred palette. Asking the window to use a different palette will cause severe performance penalties.
