Hi there,
I need a code example of how to split a bmp into small pieces. My problem:

I have a large bmp with tiles on it (for use in a tiled based game) only, it's like 14tiles x 30tiles in size. A tile is 48x48 and there is a 3 pixel sperater around the tiles, ie....

------------------
|    ||    ||    |
|    ||    ||    |
------------------

Kinda like that. I need to know how i can load a bmp up and have eg:

Tile height: ??
Tile width: ??
Skip width: ??
Skip height: ??

The values would be (for my purpose):
48,48,3,3

If anyone can help me, please do so.

Thanks
Stephen

Btw, the program will then spit out seperate bmps of the sperate tiles.

Thanks

sorry had no time to code, but its not so heavy to solve

the heart, beside the calculation is the bitmap.canvas.copyrect-method
or as alternative the bitblt-api funtion
to copy a part from the source bitmap into the new one

meikl ;-)

Hi,
 Try this code:

Type
 TXYWH     = Record
              x, y, w, h : integer;
             End;
 TTileXY   = array of TXYWH;


//Calc the XYPos in the Source-Bitmap and
//the width, height
//SkipL/R/T/B are Left, Right, Top, Bottom
Procedure CalcTileXY(VAR _TileXY : TTileXY;
                     horzCount, vertCount, TileHeight, TileWidth,
                     SkipL, SkipR, SkipT, SkipB : Integer);
VAR
 x, y, i : integer;

Begin
 SetLength(_TileXY, horzCount * vertCount);
 i := 0;
 For y := 0 to (vertCount -1) do
  For x := 0 to (horzCount -1) do
  Begin
   _TileXY[i].x := (x * TileWidth) + SkipL;
   _TileXY[i].y := (y * TileHeight) + SkipT;
   _TileXY[i].w := TileWidth - (SkipL + SkipR);
   _TileXY[i].h := TileHeight - (SkipT + SkipB);
   Inc(i);
  End;
End;

// TileNo from 1 to ...
Procedure GetTileBitmap(SourceBitmap : TBitmap; VAR DestBitmap : TBitmap;
                       _TileXY : TTileXY; TileNo : Cardinal);
Begin
 Dec(TileNo);
 DestBitmap.Canvas.CopyRect(
  Rect(0,0, _TileXY[TileNo].w , _TileXY[TileNo].h ),
  SourceBitmap.Canvas,
  Rect(_TileXY[TileNo].x, _TileXY[TileNo].y,
       _TileXY[TileNo].x + _TileXY[TileNo].w,
       _TileXY[TileNo].y + _TileXY[TileNo].h));
End;


Procedure DestroyTileXY(VAR _TileXY : TTileXY);
Begin
 SetLength(_TileXY, 0);
End;

-----------------------------------
example how to use these functions:
-----------------------------------

VAR
 TileXY : TTileXY;
 TileBitmap : TBitmap;

begin
 CalcTileXY(TileXY, 5, 5, 50, 50, 1, 1, 1, 1);
 TileBitmap := TBitmap.Create;
 TileBitmap.Width := TileXY[0].w;
 TileBitmap.height := TileXY[0].h;
 GetTileBitmap(Image1.Picture.Bitmap, TileBitmap, TileXY, StrToInt(Edit1.Text));
 Image2.Canvas.Draw(0,0, TileBitmap);
 DestroyTileXY(TileXY);
 TileBitmap.Free;
end;
