Hi,
   I am trying to pass a HBITMAP from Delphi to a C DLL and am getting access violation.

Here's my delphi wrapper. "myPic" is a TBitmap object.
result      := TEST_DLL( HBITMAP(myPic.Handle) );

and here is the C function declaration:

IMGPRO_API IMGP_RESULT Test(HBITMAP i_HBmp);

Any idea why this is so.

Thanks a lot.

Only 3 things come to mind...

1.) myPic object is nil (not assigned)
2.) There is a problem in the dll function itself
3.) Calling convention is not correct (one is cdecl, the other stdcall, etc). Check the calling convention for the C dll and make sure your Delphi declaration matches

eg:

function FunctionName(params....): ResultType; stdcall; external 'dllname.dll';
or
function FunctionName(params....): ResultType; cdecl; external 'dllname.dll';
etc...

Russell
