L_LTIMGCLR_API L_INT L_DesaturateBitmap(pBitmap, uFlags)
Converts the image to a grayscale level by reducing the saturation of each color to zero. The conversion will not change the color resolution.
Pointer to the bitmap handle that references the bitmap on which to apply the effect.
Reserved for future use. Must be 0.
|SUCCESS||The function was successful.|
|< 1||An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.|
This function does not support signed data images. It returns the error code ERROR_SIGNED_DATA_NOT_SUPPORTED if a signed data image is passed to this function.
