Retrieves one or more rows of 1-bit compressed data from a class objects bitmap that has been loaded in its compressed format.


#include "ltwrappr.h"

virtual L_INT LBitmapBase::GetRowCompressed(pLRunBuffer, nRow, nLines=1, pWorkBuffer=NULL)


LBuffer * pLRunBuffer

Pointer to an LBuffer object that will receive the retrieved row(s).

L_INT nRow

The number of the row to retrieve. The first row is 0 and the last row is 1 less than the bitmap height.

L_INT nLines

The number of lines to retrieve.

LBuffer * pWorkBuffer

A pointer to an optional work buffer. You can also pass NULL. Allocating the work buffer speeds processing if you call this function more than once, because if you do not allocate a work buffer, the function allocates and frees a temporary buffer each time it is called. The size of this buffer should be the same as the value returned by LBitmapBase::GetBytesPerLine.


Value Meaning
SUCCESS The function was successful.
< 1 An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.


Retrieves a row (or part of a row) of 1-bit compressed data from a class objects bitmap that has been loaded in its compressed format.

This function is useful for working with 1-bit images that are loaded in their compressed formats for faster loading and display. For more information, refer to Speeding Up 1-Bit Documents.

Required DLLs and Libraries


Win32, x64.

This example demonstrates the low-level functions for accessing
1-bit compressed bitmap data. It demonstrates the ability to get and put
rows, and the ability to process rows in buffer-to-buffer processing.
The result of the function is the first 50 lines are inverted.
