Transparent bitmap

Hi,

I am trying to blit transparent DIB to memory DC of PostScript driver.
No luck yet.

I have seen references to

 bTransSupport = (GetDeviceCaps(hDC, CAPS1) & C1_TRANSPARENT) ? TRUE :
FALSE;

but can't find definitions of CAPS1 & C1_TRANSPARENT.

Does smb know smth about it?

Thank you very much,
Gary Vernikov

P.S.: Pls, make a note that I am asking about Postscript Driver DC. Only. Win32. Only. All the rest doesn't seem to be a problem.

I do have MSDN and checked all stuff there.

If bTransSupport is TRUE, that means you can transparent bitblt that uses the current background color of the DC as the transparent color.

if (GetDeviceCaps(hdcD, CAPS1) & C1_TRANSPARENT)
    {
        WORD w;
        w = SetBkMode(hdcD, TRANSPARENT1);
        f = BitBlt(hdcD,x,y,dx,dy,hdcS,x0,y0,SRCCOPY);
        SetBkMode(hdcD, w);
    }

But you are trying to blit transparent DIB. There are some examples on the Microsoft JumpStart 2.0 CD-ROM/Latestuf/Dibfx. If you cannot get it, let me know, I can send it to you by E-Mail.

Since Win32 is a device independent platform, Postscript Driver DC should behave like other DCs.

But all DCs have their own characteristics... Try to print transparent bitmap on Postscript and U'll see what I mean.

If you cannot print transparent bitmap on Postscript DC, you can do it on a general DC and bitblt it to Postscript DC. C1_TRANSPARENT is not defined in Win32.

Just looks like Postscript doesn't support transparency
