Item Property

Summary

Gets the Device item with the specified name.

Syntax
C#
VB
C++
public Device Item( 
   string name 
) { get; } 
Public Overloads ReadOnly Property Item( _ 
   ByVal name As String _ 
) As Device 
public: 
property Device^ Item { 
   Device^ get(String^ name); 
} 

Parameters

name
The string name of the item to get.

Property Value

The Device item with the specified name.

Exceptions

ExceptionDescription
System.ArgumentOutOfRangeExceptionThe exception that is thrown when the value of an argument is outside the allowable range of values as defined by the invoked method.
System.NullReferenceExceptionThe exception that is thrown when there is an attempt to dereference a null object reference.
Remarks

This property provides the ability to access a specific item in the collection by using the following syntax: myCollection[index] The C# language uses the this keyword to define the indexers instead of implementing the Item property. VB implements Item as a default property, which provides the same indexing functionality.

Device names are unique. An application can use this method to find a specific device. A Device name can be retrieved with the Device.Name property or by using the LTMM DirectShow Filter List Utility.

If the method fails, an error is raised. For more information, refer to the Error Codes.
