L_LTKRN_API L_SSIZE_T L_GetBitmapRowColCompressed(pBitmap, pWorkBuffer, pRunBuffer, nRow, nCol, uWidth)


pointer to the bitmap handle

L_UCHAR * pWorkBuffer;

pointer to a work buffer

L_UINT16 * pRunBuffer;

pointer to the target buffer

L_INT nRow;

number of the row to retrieve

L_INT nCol;

column offset within the row to retrieve

L_SIZE_T uWidth;

number of pixels to retrieve

Retrieves a row (or part of a row) of 1-bit compressed data from a bitmap that has been loaded in its compressed format.




Pointer to the bitmap handle referencing the bitmap to get the image data from.


NULL or a pointer to an optional work buffer. Allocating the work buffer speeds processing if you call this function more than once, because if you do not allocate a work buffer, the function allocates and frees a temporary buffer each time it is called. The size of this buffer should be the same as the bitmap handle's BytesPerLine field.


Pointer to the output buffer, which will be filled with 1-bit compressed image data. Calculate the required size of this buffer as follows: bytes required = (nWidth + 3) * 2.


The number of the row to retrieve. The first row is 0, and the last row is 1 less than the bitmap height.


The column offset within the row to retrieve. The first column offset is 0, and the last column offset is 1 less than the bitmap width.


The number of pixels to retrieve.


> 0

The number of pixels processed.

< 1

An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.


This function is useful for working with 1-bit images that are loaded in their compressed formats for faster loading and display. For more information, refer to Speeding Up 1-Bit Documents.
