I'm looking for tips as to how to load a bitmap in C++ Builder (hopefully its the same as Delhi ;-).

The built in methods seem to be for loading from file, clipboard or another bitmap!

What's a good way of loading a pixel, a line or even the whole bitmap with raw data - apart from saving to a BMP first!

Thanks

Chris,

To access the specific pixels, use the Bitmap.Canvas.Pixels[X, Y]  property. To access a line of pixels you can use Bitmap.ScanLine property - it will give you a pointer to the pixels of a specific line in the bitmap.

To load the bitmap with raw data, create a memory stream (TMemoryStream), write the raw data to the stream and use Bitmap.LoadFromStream.

Excellent, very quick and to the point.

I'm just embarrased I couldn't get this stuff out of the docs :-(

Thanks you ygolan!
