bmp.width := whatevervalue;
bmp.height := whatevervalue;

I think, what rmloh is trying to say is:
He wants to change the size of a Bitmap and then save it to file with the new size.

Greetings, Oli

You can create a temporary TBitmap, copy the stretched image (of the source) over using CopyRect or the like then save the temporary TBitmap using the SaveToFile method.

If you are not satisfied with the answer you should ask for further help and not just reject the answer... if I don't supply further help you just reject it then.... NExt time you bettter explain your situation 'cuz and tired of people not explaining completly what they want...

Here it is...

To save a bitmap to a file you use SaveToFile() like this...

MyBitmap.SaveToFile(PutTheFileNameInHere);

to stretch the bitmap use StretchDraw();;;;here is an example....


var
  b : TBitmap;
begin
 b := TBitmap.Create;
 b.LoadFromFile('C:\windows\desktop\test.bmp');
 b.canvas.StretchDraw(rect(0, 0, b.width shl 1, b.height shl 1), b);
 b.SaveToFile('C:\windows\desktop\stretched.bmp');
 b.Free;
end;

This should work, if it doesn't let me know and I'll do it once again and will test it. If you are not satisfied with the answer please don't reject my answer and just tell me what more you need and I'll answer your questions...

Oh, I forgot, make sure that you have a bitmap named test.bmp on your desktop in order for this to work....
