L_LTIMGSFX_API L_INT L_DrawStarBitmap(pBitmap, pStarInfo, uFlags)

Draws a star on the bitmap.



Pointer to the bitmap handle that references the bitmap on which to draw the star.


Pointer to an LPSTARINFO structure that contains star information.

L_UINT32 uFlags

Reserved for future use. Must be 0.


Value Meaning
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.

If the bitmap has a region, the effect will be applied on the region only.

This function supports 12- and 16-bit grayscale and 48- and 64-bit color images. Support for 12- and 16-bit grayscale and 48- and 64-bit color images is available in the Document and Medical Imaging toolkits.

To update a status bar or detect a user interrupt during execution of this function, refer to L_SetStatusCallback.

This function does not support 32-bit grayscale images. It returns the error code ERROR_GRAY32_UNSUPPORTED if a 32-bit grayscale image is passed to this function.

Required DLLs and Libraries


Win32, x64.
