IFilterMapper Interface

Note   This interface has been deprecated. It will continue to be supported for backward compatibility with existing applications, but new applications should use the IFilterMapper2 interface.

This interface provides methods for registering and unregistering filters, and for looking up filters based on their characteristics.

In addition to the methods inherited from IUnknown, the IFilterMapper interface exposes the following methods.
