function returns an "opaque" data structure object, the contents of which are
specific to the line (service provider) and device class. The data structure
object stores the current configuration of a media-stream device associated with
the line device.
| DWORD dwDeviceID,
| LPVARSTRING lpDeviceConfig,
| LPCSTR lpszDeviceClass
The line device to be configured.
A pointer to the memory location of type VARSTRING
where the device configuration structure is returned. Upon successful
completion of the request, this location is filled with the device configuration. The dwStringFormat
field in the VARSTRING
structure will be set to STRINGFORMAT_BINARY. Prior to calling lineGetDevConfig
, the application should set the dwTotalSize
field of this structure to indicate the amount of memory available to TAPI
for returning information.
A pointer to a NULL-terminated ASCII string that specifies the device class of
the device whose configuration is requested. Valid device class lineGetID
strings are the same as those specified for the function.
Returns zero if the function is successful or a negative error number if an
error has occurred. Possible return values are:
LINEERR_BADDEVICEID, LINEERR_NODRIVER, LINEERR_INVALDEVICECLASS,
LINEERR_OPERATIONUNAVAIL, LINEERR_INVALPOINTER, LINEERR_RESOURCEUNAVAIL,
LINEERR_STRUCTURETOOSMALL, LINEERR_OPERATIONFAILED, LINEERR_NOMEM, LINEERR_UNINITIALIZED,
Call states are device specific.
function can be used to retrieve a data structure from TAPI that specifies
the configuration of a media stream device associated with a particular line
device. For example, the contents of this structure could specify data rate,
character format, modulation schemes, and error control protocol settings for a
"datamodem" media device associated with the line.
Typically, an application will call lineGetID
to identify the media stream device associated with a line, and then call lineConfigDialog
to allow the user to set up the device configuration. It could then call lineGetDevConfig
, and save the configuration information in a phone book (or other database)
associated with a particular call destination. When the user later wishes to
call the same destination again, lineSetDevConfig
can be used to restore the configuration settings selected by the user. The
, and lineGetDevConfig
can be used, in that order, to allow the user to view and update the
The exact format of the data contained within the structure is specific to the
line and media stream API (device class), is undocumented, and is undefined.
The structure returned by this function cannot be directly accessed or
manipulated by the application, but can only be stored intact and later used in lineSetDevConfig
to restore the settings. The structure also cannot necessarily be passed to
other devices, even of the same device class (although this may work in some
instances, it is not guaranteed).
