The Restore method restores a surface that has been lostthat is, the surface memory associated with the DirectDrawSurface object has been freed. Surfaces can be lost because the mode of the display card was changed or because an application received exclusive access to the display card and freed all of the surface memory currently allocated on the video card. When a DirectDrawSurface object loses its surface memory, many methods will return DDERR_SURFACELOST and perform no other function. Restore will reallocate surface memory and reattach it to the DirectDrawSurface object.
A single call to Restore will restore a DirectDrawSurface's associated implicit surfaces. An attempt to restore an implicitly created surface will result in an error. Restore will not work across explicit attachments created using the AddAttachedSurface method; each of these surfaces must be restored individually.
This method takes no parameters.
|DD_OK||The method succeeded.|
|DDERR_INVALIDPARAMS||One or more of the input parameters is invalid.|
|DDERR_IMPLICITLYCREATED||This surface can not be restored because it is an implicitly created surface.|
|DDERR_INVALIDOBJECT||DirectDraw received a pointer that was an invalid DirectDraw object.|
|DDERR_WRONGMODE||This surface can not be restored because it was created in a different mode.|
|DDERR_OUTOFMEMORY||DirectDraw does not have enough memory to perform the operation.|
|DDERR_NOEXCLUSIVEMODE||Operation requires the application to have exclusive mode but the application does not have exclusive mode.|
|DDERR_INCOMPATIBLEPRIMARY||Unable to match primary surface creation request with existing primary surface.|
