L_PntRegionSurface

#include "LtPnt.h"

L_LTPNT_API L_INT L_PntRegionSurface(pPaint, UserDC, pptPoint, phDestRgn)

Creates a region, starting at a specified point and continuing in all directions, that contains a specific color.

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 a POINT stucture that the toolkit will use as a starting point to create the region. The color located at this point will specify the surface color.

pHRGN phDestRgn

Pointer to the region handle to be updated with the resulting region.

Returns

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

Comments

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

This function will also use the current painting transformation information when creating the new region. To get the current painting transformation information, call L_PntGetTransformation. To change or set the painting transformation information, call L_PntSetTransformation.

If the user has set a bitmap in the toolkit, using the function L_PntSetMetrics, then the toolkit will create the region for the bitmap. Otherwise, the toolkit will create the region for the specified device context.

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