LBitmapBase::ConvertToDDB

#include "ltwrappr.h"

virtual HBITMAP LBitmapBase::ConvertToDDB(hDC)

HDC hDC;

handle to the device responsible for the conversion

Converts an LBitmapBase objects bitmap into a Windows device dependent bitmap (DDB). When this function is completed, there are two copies of the image in memory: the DDB and the original LEAD bitmap. Freeing one will not affect the other.

Parameter

Description

hDC

Handle to the device responsible for the conversion. The mapping mode of the device context must be MM_TEXT.

Returns

This function returns a handle to the DDB, or it returns a NULL if there is an error.

Comments

This function allocates a DDB bitmap and copies the LBitmapBase objects bitmap to the DDB. When you no longer need the DIB, you can free it using the Windows DeleteObject function.
