L_FeatherAlphaBlendBitmap

#include "l_bitmap.h"

L_LTIMGEFX_API L_INT L_FeatherAlphaBlendBitmap(pBitmapDst, nXDst, nYDst, nWidth, nHeight, pBitmapSrc, nXSrc, nYSrc, pBitmapMask, nXMaskShift, nYMaskShift, uFlags)

Combines image data from two bitmaps with feathering. The two bitmaps can be combined with a variable opacity applied by specifying the region of a fade mask.

Parameters

pBITMAPHANDLE pBitmapDst

Pointer to the bitmap handle that references the destination bitmap. The function will update this bitmap.

L_INT nXDst

The X coordinate of the origin of the destination rectangle.

L_INT nYDst

The Y coordinate of the origin of the destination rectangle.

L_INT nWidth

Width of the area to be combined, in pixels. This width applies to both the source and the destination areas.

L_INT nHeight

Height of the area to be combined, in pixels. This height applies to both the source and the destination areas.

pBITMAPHANDLE pBitmapSrc

Pointer to the bitmap handle that references the source bitmap.

L_INT nXSrc

The X coordinate of the origin of the source rectangle.

L_INT nYSrc

The Y coordinate of the origin of the source rectangle.

pBITMAPHANDLE pBitmapMask

Pointer to the bitmap handle that references the fade mask.

L_INT nXMaskShift

The X coordinate of the origin of the mask rectangle.

L_INT nYMaskShift

The Y coordinate of the origin of the mask rectangle.

L_UINT32 uFlags

Reserved for future use. Must be 0.

Returns

Value Meaning
SUCCESS The function was successful.
< 1 An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.

Comments

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.

To combine two bitmaps with a fixed opacity, use the L_AlphaBlendBitmap function.

The L_FeatherAlphaBlendBitmap function achieves feathering between two bitmaps by using variable opacity values, obtained from the fade mask referenced by pBitmapMask. The origin coordinates of the region of the fade mask bitmap are specified by the values of nXMaskShift and nYMaskShift parameters.

To create a bitmap that contains a fade mask, use L_CreateFadedMask function.

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

This function supports 12 and 16-bit grayscale and 48 and 64-bit color images. Support for 12 and 16-bit grayscale and 48 and 64-bit color images is available in the Document and Medical Imaging toolkits.

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.
