L_LTIMGEFX_API L_INT L_ResizeBitmapRgn(pBitmap, uDim, uFlags, bAsFrame)


pointer to the bitmap handle

L_UINT uDim;

number of pixels to resize the width

L_UINT uFlags;


L_BOOL bAsFrame;


Resizes a bitmap region by the specified number of pixels.

Parameter Description
pBitmap Pointer to the bitmap handle that references the bitmap to resize.
uDim Number of pixels by which to resize the region.
uFlags Flag that indicates whether to contract or expand the bitmap region. Possible values are:
  Value Meaning
  RGN_EXPAND [0x0001] Expand the region.
  RGN_CONTRACT [0x0002] Contract the region.
bAsFrame Flag that indicates whether to create a frame associated with the resized bitmap region. Possible values are:
  Value Meaning
  TRUE Create a frame of thickness uDim for the resized region. If uFlags is RGN_EXPAND, the frame created will exist outside the boundaries of the resized region. If uFlags is RGN_CONTRACT, the frame will be within the boundaries of the resized region.
  FALSE Resize the region only. Do not create a frame.

This function keeps the same bitmap handle and resizes the bitmap region that it references.

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 supports 32-bit grayscale images.

Working with the Existing Bitmap Region


For complete sample code, refer to the ImgChd.c module of the IMGFEATR example. This example changes a bitmap region size

   if(nRet !=SUCCESS) 
      return nRet; 
   /* Specify a rectangle to define a region , this region specify by the mouse on IMGFEATR demo*/ 
   SetRect(&rRgnRect, 80, 20, 100, 40); 
   /* Create an elliptical region */  
   nRet = L_SetBitmapRgnEllipse(&Bitmap, NULL, &rRgnRect, L_RGN_SET); 
   if(nRet !=SUCCESS) 
      return nRet; 
   /* contract the bitmap region by 20 pixels*/ 
   nRet = L_ResizeBitmapRgn(&Bitmap, 20, RGN_CONTRACT, FALSE); 
   if(nRet !=SUCCESS) 
      return nRet; 
   /* Free the region */ 
   //free Bitmap 
   nRet = L_SaveBitmap(MAKE_IMAGE_PATH(TEXT("Result.BMP")), &Bitmap, FILE_BMP, 24, 0, NULL);

      return nRet;
