SetBitmapDimensionEx info  Overview  Group

The SetBitmapDimensionEx function assigns preferred dimensions to a bitmap. These dimensions can be used by applications; however, they are not used by Windows.

BOOL SetBitmapDimensionEx(

    HBITMAP hBitmap,

// handle of bitmap

    int nWidth,

// bitmap width in .01-mm units

    int nHeight,

// bitmap height in .01-mm units

    LPSIZE lpSize 

// address of structure for original dimensions



Identifies the bitmap. The bitmap cannot be a DIB section bitmap.
Specifies the width, in 0.1-millimeter units, of the bitmap.
Specifies the height, in 0.1-millimeter units, of the bitmap.
Points to a SIZE structure to receive the previous dimensions of the bitmap. This pointer can be NULL.

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 retrieve the dimensions assigned to a bitmap with the SetBitmapDimensionEx function by calling the GetBitmapDimensionEx function.

The bitmap identified by hBitmap cannot be a dib section, which is a bitmap created by the CreateDIBSection function. If the bitmap is a dib section, the SetBitmapDimensionEx function fails.
