BOOL AnimatePalette(

    HPALETTE hpal,

// handle to logical color palette

    UINT iStartIndex,

// first entry in logical palette

    UINT cEntries,

// count of entries in logical palette


// pointer to first replacement



Identifies the logical palette.

Specifies the number of entries to be replaced.
Pointer to the first member of an array of PALETTEENTRY structures used to replace the current entries.

Return Values

If the function succeeds, the return value is nonzero.

If the function fails, the return value is zero. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.


An application can determine whether a device supports palette operations by calling the GetDeviceCaps function and specifying the RASTERCAPS constant.

The AnimatePalette function only changes entries with the PC_RESERVED flag set in the corresponding palPalEntry member of the LOGPALETTE structure.

If the given palette is associated with the active window, the colors in the palette are replaced immediately.
