virtual L_INT LAnnAutomation::SetBitmapDpiX(dDpiX, uFlags=0)

Sets the horizontal Bitmap DPI (dots per inch) value that is used to translate the horizontal distance for Ruler objects.



The horizontal DPI value to set. Valid values are greater than or equal to 1.

If you pass 0 or a positive value less than 1, the value will default to 150. If you pass a negative value, the function will return an error.

L_UINT uFlags

Reserved for future versions, use 0.


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


You should set this value to the bitmaps XResolution. Call this function every time you load objects or paste them from the clipboard. Otherwise, the distances shown by the ruler objects will not be accurate.

Required DLLs and Libraries


Win32, x64.
