#include "l_bitmap.h"

L_LTFIL_API L_UINT L_GetPNGTRNS (pData)

Gets the transparency data used by LEADTOOLS when loading PNG files.

Parameters

L_UCHAR *pData

Pointer to a buffer to be updated with the transparency data used when loading PNG files.

Returns

Value Meaning
0 or > 1 The length of the data buffer.
< 1 An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.

Comments

This function supports1-bit to 8-bit PNG images.

To set the transparency data used when saving PNG files, use L_SetPNGTRNS function.

The transparency data obtained by this function is valid for the current thread.

Required DLLs and Libraries

Platforms

Win32, x64, Linux.
