Hi

I was wondering if there is an easy way to draw on a TBitmap's canvas a bit map ?? (eg. '0001100011' where zeros are white and ones are black pixels)

THX in advance for any help

no, not exactly. however, assuming that the bit map is an array of byte, you can do something like this:

var b:tbitmap; i,x,y:integer; a:array of byte;
    mask:byte; p:0..7; c:tcolor;
begin
  for i:=1 to length(a) do
  begin
    for p:=7 downto 0 do
    begin
      if a[i] and (1 shl p)= 1 then c:=clblack
                               else c:=clwhite;
      x:=length(a)*8 mod b.width;
      y:=length(a)*8 div b.width;
      b.Canvas.Pixels[x, y]:=c;
    end;
  end;

not tested but looks ok. let me know if there are issues.

If you're interested in speed, you may define a mask with 1's and 0's and then use MaskBlt.

(I mean using the same bits you already have, not bytes)...
