L_LTDIS_API L_INT L_GetBitmapRgnBounds(pBitmap, pXForm, pRect)


pointer to the bitmap handle


pointer to a coordinate translation structure

L_RECT* pRect;

address of the RECT structure to be updated

Gets the bounding rectangle of the bitmap region.




Pointer to the bitmap handle referencing the bitmap that has the region.


Pointer to an RGNXFORM structure that LEADTOOLS uses to translate between display coordinates and bitmap coordinates.


If you specify NULL in this parameter, the scalar fields default to 1, the offsets default to 0, and the view perspective defaults to the bitmap's view perspective.


Address of the RECT variable for the bounding rectangle that this function is to update.



The function was successful.

< 1

An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.


Before calling this function, you must declare an RGNXFORM structure and set its values, which LEADTOOLS uses to translate between device context coordinates and bitmap coordinates. For details about how the structure works refer to the RGNXFORM structure description. For a description of common usage, refer to Translating Coordinates for a Bitmap Region.
