SetBitmapBits info  Overview  Group

The SetBitmapBits function sets the bits of color data for a bitmap to the specified values.

The SetBitmapBits function is included only for compatibility with earlier versions of Windows. For Win32-based applications, use the SetDIBits function.

LONG SetBitmapBits(

    HBITMAP hbmp,

// handle of bitmap

    DWORD cBytes,

// number of bytes in bitmap array

    CONST VOID *lpBits 

// address of array with bitmap bits



Identifies the bitmap to be set.
Specifies the number of bytes pointed to by the lpBits parameter.
Points to an array of bytes that contain color data for the specified bitmap.

Return Values

If the function succeeds, the return value is the number of bytes used in setting the bitmap bits.

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


The array identified by lpBits must be WORD aligned.
