HorizontalLocked Property

Summary

Gets a value that indicates whether horizontal sync is locked.

Syntax
C#
VB
C++
public bool HorizontalLocked { get; } 
Public ReadOnly Property HorizontalLocked As Boolean 
public: 
property bool HorizontalLocked { 
   bool get(); 
} 

Property Value

true if horizontal sync is locked; false, otherwise.

Remarks

This property is updated automatically with a value that indicates whether the horizontal sync is locked. Horizontal sync is a mechanism used to determine where the beginning of the new scan line is.

For more detailed information, refer to the Microsoft documentation for IAMAnalogVideoDecoder.get_HorizontalLocked.
