in VB: (private can be public in certain circumstances)

Private Type SIZE
    cx As Long
    cy As Long
End Type


Private Declare Function GetBitmapDimensionEx Lib "gdi32" Alias "GetBitmapDimensionEx" (ByVal hBitmap As Long, lpDimension As SIZE) As Long

Here is the MSDN documentation

However the example of its use is not VB. So I don't know how much help it will be. It also states that the retrieved dimensions must have been set by the SetBitmapDimensionEx function. So unless you know this has been used I doubt it will be much use.

What are you trying to do once you have got the dimensions, there are various tools for manipulating bitmaps which I am sure we can help with, if you give us a bit more information.
