L_PntFillSurface

#include "LtPnt.h"

L_LTPNT_API L_INT L_PntFillSurface(pPaint, UserDC, pptPoint)

Fills an area, starting at a specified point and continuing in all directions, that contains a specified color and some tolerance.

Parameters

pPAINTHANDLE pPaint

Pointer to a paint handle.

L_HDC UserDC

Handle to a device context, such as a screen, to use as a display surface. This parameter can also be NULL. The mapping mode of the device context must be MM_TEXT.

const LPPOINT pptPoint

Pointer to POINT structure that the toolkit will us as a starting point to fill the area. This point color will specify the surface color.

Returns

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

Comments

The filling procedure will be carried out using the current fill properties. To determine the current fill properties, call L_PntGetProperty. To set or change the current fill properties, call L_PntSetProperty. For more information on the fill properties, refer to the PAINTFILL structure.

Within the PAINTFILL structure, upper and lower tolerance values can be set for the border color specified in crBorderColor. For example, if the border color passed to this function has an RGB value of 40, 40 , 200, and the lower tolerance and upper tolerance set in the PAINTFILL structure are 10, 10, 10, and 5, 5, 5, respectively, then this function will recognize colors from 30, 30, 190 to 45, 45, 205 as the border color.

If UserDC is not NULL, the toolkit will paint on the specified device context. If UserDC is NULL, the toolkit will not paint on a device context.

If the UserDC is not NULL, the user should set the DC boundaries before calling this function, by calling L_PntSetDCExtents.
