LoadBitmap info  Overview  Group

The LoadBitmap function loads the specified bitmap resource from a module’s executable file. This function has been superseded by the LoadImage function.

HBITMAP LoadBitmap(

    HINSTANCE hInstance,

// handle of application instance

    LPCTSTR lpBitmapName 

// address of bitmap resource name

   );

Parameters

hInstance
Identifies the instance of the module whose executable file contains the bitmap to be loaded.
lpBitmapName
Points to a null-terminated string that contains the name of the bitmap resource to be loaded. Alternatively, this parameter can consist of the resource identifier in the low-order word and zero in the high-order word. The MAKEINTRESOURCE macro can be used to create this value.

Return Values

If the function succeeds, the return value is the handle of the specified bitmap.

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

Remarks

If the bitmap pointed to by the lpBitmapName parameter does not exist or there is insufficient memory to load the bitmap, the function fails.

An application can use the LoadBitmap function to access the predefined bitmaps used by the Win32 API. To do so, the application must set the hInstance parameter to NULL and the lpBitmapName parameter to one of the following values:

OBM_BTNCORNERS

OBM_OLD_RESTORE

OBM_BTSIZE

OBM_OLD_RGARROW

OBM_CHECK

OBM_OLD_UPARROW

OBM_CHECKBOXES

OBM_OLD_ZOOM

OBM_CLOSE

OBM_REDUCE

OBM_COMBO

OBM_REDUCED

OBM_DNARROW

OBM_RESTORE

OBM_DNARROWD

OBM_RESTORED

OBM_DNARROWI

OBM_RGARROW

OBM_LFARROW

OBM_RGARROWD

OBM_LFARROWD

OBM_RGARROWI

OBM_LFARROWI

OBM_SIZE

OBM_MNARROW

OBM_UPARROW

OBM_OLD_CLOSE

OBM_UPARROWD

OBM_OLD_DNARROW

OBM_UPARROWI

OBM_OLD_LFARROW

OBM_ZOOM

OBM_OLD_REDUCE

OBM_ZOOMD

Bitmap names that begin with OBM_OLD represent bitmaps used by Windows versions earlier than 3.0.

For an application to use any of the OBM_ constants, the constant OEMRESOURCE must be defined before the WINDOWS.H header file is included.

The application must call the DeleteObject function to delete each bitmap handle returned by the LoadBitmap function.
