#include "ltwrappr.h"

virtual HDC LDoubleBuffer::Begin(hDC, cx, cy)

Returns a memory hDC that is used in the double buffering process.



Handle to the target device context.

L_INT cx

Width, in pixels, of the target device context.

L_INT cy

Height, in pixels, of the target device context.


Value Meaning
<> 0 Memory hDC to use for double buffered paints
0 The function failed.


Use [LDoubleBuffer:Begin to begin a double buffering process. All double buffered paint operations should be wrapped in [LDoubleBuffer:Begin and LDoubleBuffer::End calls.

The hDC argument is the device context that you want to double buffer. The arguments cx and cy specify the pixel dimensions of the hDC. If the call to [LDoubleBuffer:Begin is successful, a memory hDC is returned. Use this memory hDC for all subsequent paint operations. When you want the result of the memory hDC to appear on the target hDC, call LDoubleBuffer::End.

Note that you must create a double buffer handle with LDoubleBuffer::CreateHandle before calling this function.
