Compiles text-based FX source file using the fx_5_0 profile and then creates an effect.

HRESULT D3DX11CompileEffectFromFile(
   _In_z_ LPCWSTR pFileName,
   _In_opt_ const D3D_SHADER_MACRO *pDefines,
   _In_opt_ ID3DInclude *pInclude,
   _In_ UINT HLSLFlags,
   _In_ UINT FXFlags,
   _In_ ID3D11Device *pDevice,
   _Out_ ID3DX11Effect **ppEffect,
   _Outptr_opt_result_maybenull_ ID3DBlob **ppErrors );


pFileName: Filename and path to FX source file

pDefines: An array of nul-terminated macro definitions. See D3D_SHADER_MACRO

pInclude: A pointer to a ID3DInclude for handling include files. Can be set to D3D_COMPILE_STANDARD_FILE_INCLUDE when using D3DCompile #46 or later. Setting this to nullptr will cause an error if the source contains an #include statement. See ID3DInclude.

HLSLFlags: Same as D3DCompile Flags1. See D3DCOMPILE constants.

FXFlags: Same as D3DCompile Flags2. See D3DCOMPILE_EFFECT constants.

pDevice: Direct3D device for creating rendering resources and modifying state

ppEffect: Pointer to the newly created effect instance.

ppErrors: Optional compiler error messages return.
