L_PaintDCEffect

#include "l_bitmap.h"

L_LTEFX_API L_INT L_PaintDCEffect(hDC, pBitmap, pSrc, pClipSrc, pDst, pClipDst, uROP3, uEffect)

Applies an effect when painting a bitmap to a screen. The effect, commonly used for slide show transitions, specifies how the image is painted, not how it looks when painting is finished.

Parameters

HDC hDC

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

pBITMAPHANDLE pBitmap

Pointer to the bitmap handle referencing the bitmap to paint.

LPRECT pSrc

Pointer to the Windows RECT structure that specifies the part of the bitmap to use as the display source.

The coordinates in the RECT structure are relative to the bitmap. You can pass NULL to use the default, which matches the bitmap.

LPRECT pClipSrc

Pointer to the Windows RECT structure that specifies the portion of the display source to paint. Generally, this is used for updating the display when part of the source bitmap has changed.

The coordinates in the RECT structure are relative to the bitmap. You can pass NULL to use the default, which matches the bitmap.

LPRECT pDst

Pointer to the Windows RECT structure that determines how the source rectangle is scaled and how the image is positioned in the device context.

The coordinates in the RECT structure are relative to the device context. There is no default for this parameter. You must specify the RECT structure.

LPRECT pClipDst

Pointer to the Windows RECT structure that specifies the portion of the display rectangle to paint. Generally, this is used for updating changes in the display surface, such as when a user moves another window, uncovering a part of the image that had been covered up.

The coordinates in the RECT structure are relative to the device context. You can pass NULL to use the default, which matches the device context. In most cases, however, you should use the rectangle returned by the Windows WM_PAINT message.

L_UINT32 uROP3

The Windows ROP code that determines how the destination rectangle is updated. This parameter takes the same codes as the Windows BitBlt function. For ordinary painting, use SRCCOPY.

L_UINT uEffect

The effect to apply when painting. For valid values, refer to Effects.

Returns

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

Comments

If the screen has fewer colors than the image, this function dithers the output to that display surface without affecting the actual image data.

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

Otherwise, this function works the same as L_PaintDC. For a complete explanation, refer to L_PaintDC.

L_PaintDCEffect paints an image faster if its view perspective is bottom left. LEAD CMP images have a bottom-left view perspective, but some other formats have a top-left perspective. To get uniformly fast paints on all images, you can set the perspective after you load them, as shown in the following code. (You do not have to change them back before saving them in the original format, because the save functions set the orientation for the specified format.)

if (Bitmap.ViewPerspective != BOTTOM_LEFT)   
   L_ChangeBitmapViewPerspective ( NULL, &Bitmap, sizeof(BITMAPHANDLE), BOTTOM_LEFT ); 

Multipass painting for the EFX_EFFECT_PUSH_CLASS is disabled.

example.
This example shows the minimum requirements for using the L_PaintDCEffect
function to paint an image with a palette.
