scanline creates bitmap with incorrect values

Does anybody know why scanline (see code below) creates with i=0 a black bitmap (values are 0) but generates for example with i=1 a bitmap with values 43?

   for(int i = 0 ; i < 256 ; i++) {
      Graphics::TBitmap *smallImg = new Graphics::TBitmap();
      smallImg->Width = 10; smallImg->Height = 14;
      smallImg->PixelFormat = pf8bit;

      unsigned char *ptr;
      int x=0, y=0;
      ptr = static_cast<BYTE*>(smallImg->ScanLine[y]);
      for(int j=0; j < (smallImg->Height * smallImg->Width); j++) {
         if(x == smallImg->Width) {
            y++;
            x = 0;
            ptr = static_cast<BYTE*>(smallImg->ScanLine[y]);
         }
         ptr[x]= (BYTE) colorValue;
         x++;
      }
      colorValue++;
      smallImg->Palette = grayPal;
      smallImg->SaveToFile("clusterColor_" + IntToStr(i) + ".bmp");
      images->Insert(i, smallImg, NULL);
   }

try this. You may have been setting your pallette at the wrong point, or there is something wrong with your loop logic.

   for(int i = 0 ; i < 256 ; i++)
   {
      Graphics::TBitmap *smallImg = new Graphics::TBitmap();
      smallImg->Width = 10; smallImg->Height = 14;
      smallImg->PixelFormat = pf8bit;
      smallImg->Palette = grayPal;

      for (int y = 0; y < smallImg->Height; y++)
      {
        ptr = (Byte *)smallImg->ScanLine[y];
        for (int x = 0; x < smallImg->Width; x++)
          ptr[x] = (Byte)colorValue;
      }

      colorValue++;
      smallImg->SaveToFile("clusterColor_" + IntToStr(i) + ".bmp");
      images->Insert(i, smallImg, NULL);
   }

This is a guess.
Maybe element 0 of the pixel array is used to determine the type of image ie black and white
0

Shouldn't you be working with a TImage instead?
