UnrealizeObject info  Overview  Group

The UnrealizeObject function resets a logical palette. It directs the system to realize the palette as though it had not previously been realized. The next time the application calls the RealizePalette function for the specified palette, the system completely remaps the logical palette to the system palette.

If hgdiobj is a brush, UnrealizeObject does nothing, and the function returns TRUE. Use SetBrushOrgEx to set the origin of a brush.

BOOL UnrealizeObject(

    HGDIOBJ hgdiobj 

// logical palette handle



Identifies the logical palette to be reset.

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.


The UnrealizeObject function should not be used with stock objects. The default palette, obtained by calling GetStockObject(DEFAULT_PALETTE), is a stock object.

A palette identified by hgdiobj can be the currently selected palette of a device context.
