L_CaptureFromExeDlg

#include "l_bitmap.h"

L_LTSCR_API L_INT L_CaptureFromExeDlg(pBitmap, uBitmapStructSize, pszFileName, pTransparentColor, nResType, nDialogType, uFlags, pCaptureInfo, uInfoStructSize, pfnCaptureCallback, pUserData, pfnCallBack, pHlpUserData)

Displays a dialog and captures an image from a resource stored in an EXE or DLL.

Parameters

pBITMAPHANDLE pBitmap

Pointer to a bitmap handle that references the captured data.

L_UINT uBitmapStructSize

Size in bytes, of the structure pointed to by pBitmap, for versioning. Use sizeof(BITMAPHANDLE).

L_TCHAR * pszFileName

Character string containing the name of the exe (or dll) from which the resource should be captured.

LPCOLORREF pTransparentColor

Pointer to a color to be used in place of the transparent color of an Icon or Cursor.

L_INT nResType

Specifies the type of resource to capture. Possible values for RETYPEENUM are:

Value Meaning
RESTYPE_BITMAP Capture a bitmap
RESTYPE_ICON Capture an icon
RESTYPE_CURSOR Capture a cursor

L_INT nDialogType

Type of dialog to be displayed. Possible values are:

Value Meaning
LTCAPDLG_TREEVIEW Display tree dialog
LTCAPDLG_TABVIEW Display tab view

L_UINT uFlags

Flags that determine the options dialog. Possible values are:

Value Meaning
NONE [0x0000] No "?" help button will be shown.
SCRDLG_CAPTUREFROMEXE_CONTEXTHELP [0x0008] Capture from exe options dialog context help. The "?" button will appear in the title bar if the pfnCallBack is not NULL.

pLEADCAPTUREINFO pCaptureInfo

Address of LEADCAPTUREINFO structure to be filled with information regarding the captured image's source. Pass NULL if you are not interested in extra information about the capture.

L_UINT uInfoStructSize

Size in bytes, of the structure pointed to by pCaptureInfo, for versioning. Use sizeof(LEADCAPTUREINFO).

CAPTURECALLBACK pfnCaptureCallback

Optional callback function for additional processing.

If you do not provide a callback function, use NULL as the value of this parameter. If you do provide a callback function, use the function pointer as the value of this parameter. The callback function must adhere to the function prototype described in CAPTURECALLBACK Function.

L_VOID * pUserData

Void pointer that you can use to pass one or more additional parameters that the callback function needs.

To use this feature, assign a value to a variable or create a structure that contains as many fields as you need. Then, in this parameter, pass the address of the variable or structure, casting it to L_VOID ;*. The callback function, which receives the address in its own pUserData parameter, can cast it to a pointer of the appropriate data type to access your variable or structure. If the additional parameters are not needed, you can pass NULL in this parameter.

LTSCRHELPCB pfnCallBack

Optional help callback function for displaying help dialog. If you do not provide a help callback function, use NULL as the value of this parameter. If you do provide a help callback function, use the function pointer as the value of this parameter. The callback function must adhere to the function prototype described in LTSCRHELPCB Function.

L_VOID * pHlpUserData

Void pointer that you can use to pass one or more additional parameters that the help callback function needs. To use this feature, assign a value to a variable or create a structure that contains as many fields as you need. Then, in this parameter, pass the address of the variable or structure, casting it to L_VOID *. The callback function, which receives the address in its own pHlpUserData parameter, can cast it to a pointer of the appropriate data type to access your variable or structure. If the additional parameters are not needed, you can pass NULL in this parameter.

Returns

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

Comments

This function displays a dialog box that allows the user to select a resource from which a captured image should be made. The callback can be used to do multiple captures, depending on the options set using L_SetCaptureOption.

The captured bitmap may or may not have a region, depending on the transparency information of the captured resource.

If a help callback function was provided in pfnCallback, a Help button will appear on the dialog. If NULL was provided, no Help button will appear.
