nStartPosition as Int32,

nEndPosition as Int32,

fx as Microsoft.DirectX.DirectSound.EffectsEcho

) as enumErrorCodes


 

[C#]

public enumErrorCodes DirectXApply (

Int32 nStartPosition,

Int32 nEndPosition,

Microsoft.DirectX.DirectSound.EffectsEcho fx

);


 

[C++]

public: enumErrorCodes DirectXApply (

Int32 nStartPosition,
