WASAPI.DeviceStop method

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Remarks

 

Stops a WASAPI device previously started through the WASAPI.DeviceStartExcusive or WASAPI.DeviceStartShared methods. You can know if a WASAPI device is already started through the WASAPI .DeviceIsStarted method.

 

This method will affect any other instance of the control inside the application. If the control should be used in conjunction with the Audio Sound Recorder for .NET control, this one would be affected too.

 

This method is only intended for usage with Windows Vista and later versions.

For further details about the use of WASAPI see the WASAPI object and the How to manage audio flow through WASAPI tutorial.
