When reporting hardware features, the device driver sets flags in the dwCapsstructure member to indicate when a given type of restriction is enforced by the hardware. After retrieving the driver capabilities, examine the flags in the dwCapsmember for information about which restrictions apply. The DDCAPSstructure contains nine members that carry information describing hardware restrictions for overlay surfaces. The following table lists the overlay related members and their corresponding flags:
|dwMaxVisibleOverlays||This member is always valid|
|dwCurrVisibleOverlays||This member is always valid|
The dwMaxVisibleOverlaysand dwCurrVisibleOverlaysmembers carry information about the maximum number of overlays the hardware can display, and how many of them are currently visible.
Additionally, the hardware reports rectangle position and size alignment restrictions in the dwAlignBoundarySrc, dwAlignSizeSrc, dwAlignBoundaryDest, dwAlignSizeDest, and dwAlignStrideAlignmembers. The values in these members dictate how you must size and position source and destination rectangles when displaying overlay surfaces. For more information, see Source and Destination Rectanglesand Boundary and Size Alignment.
Also, the hardware reports information about stretch factors in the dwMinOverlayStretchand dwMaxOverlayStretchmembers. For more information, see Minimum and Maximum Stretch Factors.
