CImage ReleaseDC Exception Mystery
Posted on 2008-10-22
I have been applying the CImage class within a Visual C++/MFC DLL. I am experiencing a mysterious exception in atlimage.h line 1217 when I call CImage::GetPixel(0,0). The offending statement is:
hBitmap = HBITMAP( ::SelectObject( m_hDC, m_hOldBitmap ) );
ATLASSERT( hBitmap == m_hBitmap );
I have successfully loaded an 8x13 jpg 24 bpp image from disk and the pixel value is successfully read, yet the m_hOldBitmap member is null and thus SelectObject returns null. The m_hBitmap member is valid and thus does not match hBitmap.
Has anyone experienced this error and found a solution?
