The GetState method retrieves the filters's state (running, stopped, or paused).
HRESULT GetState( DWORD dwMilliSecsTimeout, FILTER_STATE *State );
Time-out interval, in milliseconds.
Pointer to a variable that receives a member of the FILTER_STATE enumerated type, indicating the filter's state.
Returns one of the HRESULT values shown in the following table.
|VFW_S_STATE_INTERMEDIATE||The filter is transitioning to the indicated state.|
|E_POINTER||NULL pointer argument.|
This method overrides the CBaseFilter::GetState method. When the renderer is paused, it does not complete the state transition until it receives a sample to render. If the time-out expires before the state transition is complete, the method returns VFW_S_STATE_INTERMEDIATE.
