CreatePalette info  Overview  Group

The CreatePalette function creates a logical color palette.

HPALETTE CreatePalette(


// pointer to logical color palette



Points to a LOGPALETTE structure that contains information about the colors in the logical palette.

Return Values

If the function succeeds, the return value is a handle that identifies a logical palette.

If the function fails, the return value is NULL. 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.

Once an application creates a logical palette, it can select that palette into a device context by calling the SelectPalette function. A palette selected into a device context can be realized by calling the RealizePalette function.

When you no longer need the palette, call the DeleteObject function to delete it.
