If the filter graph is transitioning to a new state, the method waits for the transition to complete, up to the duration specified by the msTimeout method. If this duration expires before the transition is complete, the method returns the new state and sets Err.Number to 567 (VFW_S_STATE_INTERMEDIATE).

Example Code

The following example checks whether the filter graph is stopped:

Dim state As Long
mGraph.GetState 100, state
If state = 0 Then
    ' Filter graph is stopped.
End If
