BITMAPCOREHEADER info  Overview  Group

The BITMAPCOREHEADER structure contains information about the dimensions and color format of a device-independent bitmap (DIB).

typedef struct tagBITMAPCOREHEADER { // bmch 

        DWORD   bcSize; 

        WORD    bcWidth; 

        WORD    bcHeight; 

        WORD    bcPlanes; 

        WORD    bcBitCount; 




Specifies the number of bytes required by the structure.
Specifies the width of the bitmap, in pixels.
Specifies the height of the bitmap, in pixels.
Specifies the number of planes for the target device. This value must be 1.
Specifies the number of bits per pixel. This value must be 1, 4, 8, or 24.


The BITMAPCOREINFO structure combines the BITMAPCOREHEADER structure and a color table to provide a complete definition of the dimensions and colors of a DIB. For more information about specifying a device-independent bitmap, see BITMAPCOREINFO structure.

An application should use the information stored in the bcSize member to locate the color table in a BITMAPCOREINFO structure, using a method such as the following:

pColor = ((LPBYTE) pBitmapCoreInfo + 

        (WORD) (pBitmapCoreInfo -> bcSize))
