L_DesaturateBitmap

Summary

Converts the image to a grayscale level by reducing the saturation of each color to zero. The conversion will not change the color resolution.

Syntax

#include "l_bitmap.h"

L_LTIMGCLR_API L_INT L_DesaturateBitmap(pBitmap, uFlags)

Parameters

pBITMAPHANDLE pBitmap

Pointer to the bitmap handle that references the bitmap on which to apply the effect.

L_UINT32 uFlags

Reserved for future use. Must be 0.

Returns

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