L_LTKRN_API L_INT L_CopyBitmapListItems(phList, hList, uIndex, uCount)

Creates a new bitmap list by copying the specified bitmaps from an existing list. Bitmap handles and image data are copied.



Address of the variable to be updated with the new list of bitmaps.


Handle to the list of bitmaps to copy from.

L_UINT uIndex

Index of the first bitmap to copy.

L_UINT uCount

Number of bitmaps to copy. You can specify (L_UINT) -1 to copy to the end of the existing list.


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

Required DLLs and Libraries


Win32, x64, Linux.

This example copies all but the first two bitmaps in a list of bitmaps;
then calls another function to save the copied list.

   /* Get a copy of the first image's bitmap handle */ 
   nRet = L_GetBitmapListItem(hList, 0, &TmpBitmap, sizeof(BITMAPHANDLE)); 
   if(nRet != SUCCESS)
