BASS.NET API for the Un4seen BASS Audio LibraryBassDShowBASS_DSHOW_GetVersion Method BASS.NET API for the Un4seen BASS Audio Library
Retrieves the version number of the BASS_DSHOW.DLL that is loaded.

Namespace: Un4seen.Bass.AddOn.DShow
Assembly: Bass.Net (in Bass.Net.dll) Version: 2.4.12.0
Syntax

[DllImportAttribute("xVideo.dll", EntryPoint = "xVideo_GetVersion", CharSet = CharSet.Auto)]
public static int BASS_DSHOW_GetVersion()

Return Value

Type: Int32
The BASS_DSHOW version. For example, 0x02040103 (hex), would be version 2.4.1.3.
Remarks

There is no guarantee that a previous or future version of BASS_DSHOW supports all the BASS_DSHOW functions that you are using, so you should always use this function to make sure the correct version is loaded. It is safe to assume that future minor revisions (indicated in the LOWORD) will be fully compatible.

You might use the global constant BASSDSHOWVERSION to check the major revision.

Note: Calling this method will also automatically load the library into memory.

Examples

Checking the major version only:
VB
If Utils.HighWord(BassDShow.BASS_DSHOW_GetVersion()) <> BassDShow.BASSDSHOWVERSION Then
  MessageBox.Show(Me, "Wrong BassDShow Version!")
End If
if ( Utils.HighWord(BassDShow.BASS_DSHOW_GetVersion()) != BassDShow.BASSDSHOWVERSION )
{
  MessageBox.Show(this, "Wrong BassDShow Version!");
}
Checking for full version "2.4.1.3":
VB
If BassDShow.BASS_DSHOW_GetVersion() < Utils.MakeLong(&H103, &H204) Then
  MessageBox.Show(Me, "Wrong BassDShow Version!")
End If
if (BassDShow.BASS_DSHOW_GetVersion() < Utils.MakeLong(0x0103, 0x0204))
{
  MessageBox.Show(this, "Wrong BassDShow Version!");
}
