Gets the reference counted IADLXFPS interface for the current FPS metric.



ADLX_RESULT     GetCurrentFPS (IADLXFPS ** ppMetrics)


  1. [out] ppMetrics IADLXFPS ** The address of a pointer to the returned interface. If the interface is not successfully returned, the method sets the dereferenced address *ppMetrics to nullptr.

Return Value

If the interface is successfully returned, ADLX_OK is returned.

If the interface is not successfully returned, an error code is returned.

Refer to ADLX_RESULT for success codes and error codes.


The returned interface must be discarded with Release when it is no longer needed. It takes some time and is suitable for a single acquisition. For continuous collection, it is recommended to use GetFPSHistory .

Additional Info

In C++, when using ADLX interfaces as smart pointers, there is no need to call Release because smart pointers call it in their internal implementation.

Note: The FPS metric is only available while a 3D graphics application or game runs in exclusive full screen mode.
