Returns

SUCCESS

< 1

An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.

Comments

Support for 12 and 16-bit grayscale images is only available in the Document/Medical toolkits.

This is a low-level function that is necessary only if you need to initialize the bitmap handle and allocate memory in separate steps when creating a bitmap from scratch. LBitmapBase::Create is usually a better choice.

This function must be called before using LBitmapBase::Allocate. This function only initializes the fields in the bitmap handle; it does not allocate any memory. If all zeroes are passed as the nWidth, nHeight, and nBitsPerPixel into this function, then all fields in the bitmap handle will be set to 0. Otherwise, all fields will be set to zero except the fields listed below.

When this function is called, the following fields will be set:

Field

Value

Order

ORDER_RGB if you specify 8 bits per pixel or less; ORDER_GRAY for 12 or 16-bit grayscale; ORDER_BGR otherwise. ORDER_GRAY is valid only for 12 and 16-bit grayscale images and is only available in the Document/Medical toolkits.

DitherMethod

Set by the LBitmapBase::SetDefaultDithering function

ViewPerspective

BOTTOM_LEFT [2]

Width

As passed into the function

Height

As passed into the function

BytesPerLine

Calculated using the specified width and bits per pixel, rounded on a 4-byte boundary

XResolution

Set in the LOADFILEOPTION.

YResolution

Set in the LOADFILEOPTION.
