HANDLE hSequence, 
	WORD wTrack, 
	DWORD dwWhat, 
	DWORD dwFrom, 
	QWORD qwValue

This function converts the given value from a type to another in the context of a sequence and, optionally, in the context track


Return values

Returns the converted value or BRELS_ERROR (0xFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF) if an error occurred. The reasons for an error are an invalid sequence, an invalid track index when one is required or invalid type constants.


You can convert MIDI_TICKS values to MIDI_TIME and vice-versa, or convert a MIDI_FILTER value (see MidiFilterTrackEvents) to MIDI_EVENT. The following example shows those usages:


HANDLE Sequence;
DWORD dwTicks;
QWORD qwTime;
BYTE Event;

// Open the sequence
MidiOpen("test1.mid", NO_DEVICE, &Sequence);

// Ticks from time (1.5 seconds)
dwTicks = MidiQuery(Sequence, 0, MIDI_TICKS, MIDI_TIME, 1500000);

// Time from ticks (40 ticks)
qwTime = MidiQuery(Sequence, 0, MIDI_TIME, MIDI_TICKS, 40);

// Event from filter (FILTER_NOTEON)
Event = MidiQuery(Sequence, 0, MIDI_EVENT, MIDI_FILTER, FILTER_NOTEON);

// Close the sequence
