Trouble creating swap chain

29 August 2012 - 02:28 PM

I recently started learning D3D11 and have run into trouble initializing it. I'm getting a E_INVALIDARG when calling the CreateSwapChain function. Relevant code is as follows:

D3D_DRIVER_TYPE md3dDriverType = D3D_DRIVER_TYPE_HARDWARE; // driver type
IDXGISwapChain * swap_chain;
ID3D11Device* md3dDevice;
  UINT D3d_Device_Flags = D3d_Device_Flags | D3D11_CREATE_DEVICE_DEBUG; //device flags
  D3D_FEATURE_LEVEL featureLevel;
  ID3D11DeviceContext* md3dImmediateContext;
  HRESULT hr = D3D11CreateDevice(
   0,				 // default adapter
   0,				 // no software device
   0, 0,			  // default feature level array

  DXGI_SWAP_CHAIN_DESC swap_chain_desc;
  swap_chain_desc.BufferDesc.Width  = client_width; // a value of 0 uses current window values
  swap_chain_desc.BufferDesc.Height = client_height; // a value of 0 uses current window values
  swap_chain_desc.BufferDesc.RefreshRate.Numerator = 60;
  swap_chain_desc.BufferDesc.RefreshRate.Denominator = 1;
  swap_chain_desc.BufferDesc.Format = DXGI_FORMAT_R8G8B8A8_UNORM; // display format
  swap_chain_desc.BufferDesc.ScanlineOrdering = DXGI_MODE_SCANLINE_ORDER_UNSPECIFIED; //method the raster uses to create an image on a surface.
  swap_chain_desc.BufferDesc.Scaling = DXGI_MODE_SCALING_UNSPECIFIED; //how an image is stretched to fit a given monitor's resolution
  swap_chain_desc.SampleDesc.Count = 4; //4 sub pixels per sample
  swap_chain_desc.SampleDesc.Quality = m4xMsaaQuality; //msaa quality level

  swap_chain_desc.BufferUsage  = DXGI_USAGE_RENDER_TARGET_OUTPUT;
  swap_chain_desc.BufferCount  = 1;
  swap_chain_desc.OutputWindow = window_handle;
  swap_chain_desc.Windowed	 = true;
  swap_chain_desc.SwapEffect   = DXGI_SWAP_EFFECT_DISCARD;
  swap_chain_desc.Flags		= 0;
  // retrieve IDXGIFactory instance used to create device
  IDXGIDevice* dxgiDevice = 0;
  check_for_fail(md3dDevice->QueryInterface(__uuidof(IDXGIDevice), (void**)&dxgiDevice));
  IDXGIAdapter* dxgiAdapter = 0;
  check_for_fail(dxgiDevice->GetParent(__uuidof(IDXGIAdapter), (void**)&dxgiAdapter));
  IDXGIFactory* dxgiFactory = 0;
  check_for_fail(dxgiAdapter->GetParent(__uuidof(IDXGIFactory), (void**)&dxgiFactory));
  check_for_fail(dxgiFactory->CreateSwapChain(md3dDevice, &swap_chain_desc, &swap_chain));

I can't figure out why the parameters I passed are incorrect. In the remarks for the CreateDeviceAndSwapChain functionit says "If you set the pAdapter parameter to a non-NULL value and the DriverType parameter to the D3D_DRIVER_TYPE_HARDWARE value, D3D11CreateDeviceAndSwapChain returns an HRESULT of E_INVALIDARG." However, i'm using a null value for the pAdapter parameter (besides the fact i'm not even using that function). Otherwise, I haven't had any luck finding related information. Thanks in advance for help.
