CreateDIBSectiob() from bitmap resouce

Recommended Posts


Hello, I have the following code

HMODULE hModule = GetModuleHandle(NULL); HRSRC hRes = FindResource(hModule, pBitmapName, RT_BITMAP);
if (hRes == NULL)
return; HGLOBAL hGlb = LoadResource(hModule, hRes); if (hGlb == NULL)
return; BITMAPINFO * pDIB = (BITMAPINFO *)LockResource(hGlb); if (pDIB == NULL)
return; textbmi = *pDIB;
textDC = CreateCompatibleDC(mDC->GetSafeHdc());
textbmp = CreateDIBSection(textDC, &textbmi, DIB_RGB_COLORS, (LPVOID *)&lpTextBuffer, 0, 0);
SelectObject(textDC, textbmp);

Everything looks to execute properly without API null returns - however, lpTextBuffer points to an array of zeros, no my image is not a black bitmap.

Hello and thank you for the answer. I ended up accessing the data after the structure BITMAPINFOHEADER to find out it was my pixel data.
