Hi,

    Can somebody show me some sample code on how I can get the pixel bits from a HBITMAP using GetDIBits()?

How can I get the height and width of the image given a HBITMAP?

Thanks a lot.

BITMAP bmp;
VERIFY(::GetObject(hBmp, sizeof(BITMAP), &bmp) == sizeof(BITMAP));

// bmp.bmWidth, bmp.bmHeight

Hi,
Ok here is the more specific answer,
BITMAP is a structure, having fields such as bitmap.bmWidth and bitmap.bmHeight

BITMAP bitmap;
GetObject (hBitmap, sizeof (BITMAP), &bitmap) ;

By calling this, your BITMAP structure is filled by the information of bitmap.

now you can compare its fields for any purposes. e.g.  bitmap.bmWidth==50  or so.

If you need further simplifications and help , you are welcomed.

Regards.
