L_CreateUserMatchTable

#include "l_bitmap.h"

L_LTKRN_API L_UINT * L_CreateUserMatchTable(pPalette, uColors)

Creates a table that speeds color conversion when using a palette that you create. The table is referenced by the L_ColorResBitmap function.

Parameters

L_RGBQUAD * pPalette

The array of values that is your palette.

Each item in the array can have one of the following values:

Value Meaning
Actual RGBQUAD value Use the specified color as a fixed color.
RGB_RESERVED [0x01] Leave the item blank, for possible later use.
RGB_EMPTY [0x02] Let the L_ColorResBitmap function fill in the color. The function supplies optimized colors to fill the RGB_EMPTY items.

L_UINT uColors

The number of colors in your palette.

Returns

The pointer to the table, or NULL if the function fails.

Comments

This function is used with other functions in the following sequence:

  1. Call L_CreateUserMatchTable to create the table.

  2. Call L_SetUserMatchTable to make this the current table. (Having this as a separate function allows you to save tables in files and get the one you need, without creating it again.)

  3. Call L_ColorResBitmap with the CRF_USERPALETTE and CRF_FASTMATCHPALETTE options.

  4. Call L_FreeUserMatchTable when the table is no longer needed.

The completed table is a 32K array of integers. On a 32-bit system, it occupies 128K bytes of memory. Creation of the table is a slow, memory-intensive process that is useful only if you are using your own palette more than once. For example, you may want to create the table once, save it to a file, and ship that file with your application.

Example

This example changes the color resolution of a bitmap, using a user-defined palette and a match table for fast color matching.
