L_LTIMGCOR_API L_INT L_WindowLevelBitmap (pBitmap, nLowBit, nHighBit, pLUT, uLUTLength, nOrderDst, uFlags)
Converts a 12 or 16-bit grayscale image to an 8-bit grayscale or a 24-bit RGB bitmap.
Pointer to the bitmap handle referencing the bitmap to be leveled.
Value indicating the low bit used for leveling. 0 <= nLowBit <= nHighBit <= (11 for 12-bit grayscale or 15 for 16-bit grayscale).
Value indicating the high bit used for leveling. 0 <= nLowBit <= nHighBit <= (11 for 12-bit grayscale or 15 for 16-bit grayscale).
Optional lookup table that can be used to implement a user defined conversion. For every intensity value between 0 and 2 raised to the power of (
nLowBit + 1) - 1 there should be a corresponding entry in the lookup table that contains an RGB quad. If pLUT is NULL, the conversion is a normal shift (right or left) and the output bitmap is 8-bit grayscale. If pLUT is not NULL, the output bitmap is a 24-bit bitmap.
Value indicating the number of entries pointed to by pLUT.
Value indicating the color order if the output bitmap will be 24-bit. If
pLUT is NULL, this parameter is ignored. Possible values are:
|ORDER_RGB|| The input colors are in red-green-blue order.|
|ORDER_BGR|| The input colors are in blue-green-red order.|
Reserved for future use. Must be 0.
|SUCCESS||The function was successful.|
|< 1||An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.|
This function will convert the bitmap to a window leveled bitmap. To implement window leveling without affecting the image, use L_WindowLevel.
The bitmap data is changed by this function.
This function supports 12 and 16-bit grayscale. Support for 12 and 16-bit grayscale images is available in the Document and Medical Imaging toolkits.
This function is similar to L_WindowLevelBitmapExt, except that it uses 8-bit per component LUT instead of 16-bit per component LUT. If more precision is desired, you can use L_WindowLevelBitmapExt instead of L_WindowLevelBitmap.
For information on saving bitmaps that have been window leveled, refer to Saving Window-Leveled Bitmaps.
LEADTOOLS supports two types of LUTs for 10-16-bit grayscale images (8-bit LUT and 16-bit LUT). Typical grayscale image display and processing is done using an 8-bit LUT. But, you can also use a 16-bit LUT, which offers more precision. Some special video cards and monitors also support display of grayscale images using a 16-bit LUT.
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.

This example window levels the bitmap with a custom palette. The image data is changed in this example.
