Locking the verrtex buffer

Recommended Posts

Hi I was just looking for a bit of help. I'm trying to lock the vertex buffer so I can compute the bounding box for my mesh using the code below:
        BYTE* vertices=NULL;
        mesh->LockVertexBuffer(D3DLOCK_READONLY, (LPVOID*)vertices);

      //bounds of the model
      D3DXVECTOR3 min, //lower left coordinate
                  max; //upper right coordinate

      //Compute a coordinate-axis oriented bounding box
       D3DXComputeBoundingBox((D3DXVECTOR3*)vertices, 
                               mesh->GetNumVertices(),    
                               D3DXGetFVFVertexSize(mesh->GetFVF()), 
                               &min, &max);

      mesh->UnlockVertexBuffer();


DirectX debug output is telling me: Direct3D9: (ERROR) :Bad parameter passed for ppbData for locking a vertexbuffer Direct3D9: (ERROR) :Unlock failed on a buffer; vertex buffer wasn't locked. Does anybody know what I'm doing wrong? Any help would be very much appreciated.
