Return value



GetImmediateContext1 returns an ID3D11DeviceContext1 object that represents an immediate context. You can use this immediate context to perform rendering that you want immediately submitted to a device. For most applications, an immediate context is the primary object that is used to draw your scene.

GetImmediateContext1 increments the reference count of the immediate context by one. So, call Release on the returned interface pointer when you are done with it to avoid a memory leak.
