EditGraph Method

Summary

Registers the current graph and runs the DirectShow GraphEdit utility.

Syntax
C#
VB
C++
public virtual void EditGraph() 
Public Overridable Sub EditGraph()  
public: 
virtual void EditGraph();  
Remarks

Registers the current graph and runs the DirectShow GraphEdit utility. This method displays a modal dialog box indicating that the graph has been registered. The current thread is suspended during this time. The toolkit then attempts to invoke the GraphEdit utility from the DirectShow SDK. You can use GraphEdit's "Connect" menu option to view the registered graph. When finished, exit GraphEdit, and click the dialog's OK button to continue program execution.

Example
C#
