Microsoft DirectX 9.0


The BlockOutputPin method blocks the pin. While the pin is blocked, the CDynamicOutputPin::StartUsingOutputPin method waits for the pin to become unblocked. The blocked state prevents the output pin from delivering samples, changing its output format, or reconnecting itself.


void BlockOutputPin(void);


Before calling this method, hold the CDynamicOutputPin::m_BlockStateLock critical section. Do not call this method if a streaming thread is using the pin, either to deliver data or to change the connection. To check whether a streaming thread is using the pin, call the CDynamicOutputPin::StreamingThreadUsingOutputPin method.
