Draws a specified shape and feathers it to the bitmap.




Pointer to the VIGNETTEINFO structure that contains information about the vignette effect.


Reserved for future use. Must be 0.



The function was successful.

< 1

An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.


This function can be used to draw a circle, ellipse, rectangle or square to create a vignette shape and then a color is feathered to the bitmap, filling either the inside or the outside of the vignette shape.

This function can process the whole image or a region of the image. If a bitmap has a region, the effect is applied only to the region.

Support for 12 and 16-bit grayscale and 48 and 64-bit color images is available only in the Document/Medical toolkits.

To update a status bar or detect a user interrupt during execution of this function, refer to LBase::EnableStatusCallback.

This function does not support signed data images. It returns the error code ERROR_SIGNED_DATA_NOT_SUPPORTED if a signed data image is passed to this function.

This function does not support 32-bit grayscale images. It returns the error code ERROR_GRAY32_UNSUPPORTED if a 32-bit grayscale image is passed to this function.
