Hello,

I have a difficult problem. In the past I used an Object, set in the Header a as member
like: myObject Object;
Now I changed this to a dynamic object, where I have myObject* Object; and I generate it wtih "new". In the past I submit a DC to the Object with SetPreviewDC(xxx.GetDC()->GetSafeHdc());
Everything worked well, but now after generate the object dynamicly, it fail. The hBmp is allways 0. Anybody can help here?

Ocrana

HBITMAP VideoSequence::GenerateDCPicture(HDC hDC)
{
	HBITMAP hBMP = 0;

	// if not skipped create bitmap from I_FRAME
	if(!skipped)
	{
		int target_width  = Frame.target_width;
		int target_height = Frame.target_height;
		int padding_32b = (4 - (target_width * 3) % 4) % 4;

		BITMAPINFO targetBmi;
		BITMAPINFO sourceBmi;

		ZeroMemory(&targetBmi.bmiHeader, sizeof(BITMAPINFOHEADER));
		targetBmi.bmiHeader.biSize = sizeof(BITMAPINFOHEADER);
		targetBmi.bmiHeader.biWidth = target_width;
		targetBmi.bmiHeader.biHeight = -(target_height);
		targetBmi.bmiHeader.biPlanes = 1;
		targetBmi.bmiHeader.biBitCount = 24;
		targetBmi.bmiHeader.biCompression = BI_RGB;
		targetBmi.bmiHeader.biSizeImage = target_width * target_height * 3 + target_height * padding_32b;
		targetBmi.bmiHeader.biXPelsPerMeter = 72;
		targetBmi.bmiHeader.biYPelsPerMeter = 72;

		ZeroMemory(&sourceBmi.bmiHeader, sizeof(BITMAPINFOHEADER));
		sourceBmi.bmiHeader.biSize = sizeof(BITMAPINFOHEADER);
		sourceBmi.bmiHeader.biWidth = target_width;
		sourceBmi.bmiHeader.biHeight = -(target_height);
		sourceBmi.bmiHeader.biPlanes = 1;
		sourceBmi.bmiHeader.biBitCount = 24;
		sourceBmi.bmiHeader.biCompression = BI_RGB;
		sourceBmi.bmiHeader.biSizeImage = target_width * target_height * 3 + target_height * padding_32b;
		sourceBmi.bmiHeader.biXPelsPerMeter = 72;
		sourceBmi.bmiHeader.biYPelsPerMeter = 72;

		unsigned char *buf = Frame.GetDCPicture();


		hBMP = CreateDIBitmap(hDC, (BITMAPINFOHEADER *)&targetBmi.bmiHeader, CBM_INIT, buf, &sourceBmi, DIB_RGB_COLORS);

		if(hBMP == 0)
		{
			LPVOID lpMsgBuf;
			FormatMessage( 
				FORMAT_MESSAGE_ALLOCATE_BUFFER | 
				FORMAT_MESSAGE_FROM_SYSTEM | 
				FORMAT_MESSAGE_IGNORE_INSERTS,
				NULL,
				GetLastError(),
				MAKELANGID(LANG_NEUTRAL, SUBLANG_DEFAULT), // Default language
				(LPTSTR) &lpMsgBuf,
				0,
				NULL 
			);
			// Process any inserts in lpMsgBuf.
			// ...
			// Display the string.
			MessageBox( NULL, (LPCTSTR)lpMsgBuf, _T("Error"), MB_OK | MB_ICONINFORMATION );
			// Free the buffer.
			LocalFree( lpMsgBuf );
		}
	}
	else
	{
		hBMP = (HBITMAP)CopyImage(hHyperSpeedBMP, IMAGE_BITMAP, 0, 0, 0);
	}

	return hBMP;
}

Hey Ocrana,

I think you need to show us where this allocation is happening and where the code is that you changed.

I don't see any calls to "new" happening in here.

In general switching from
myObject Object;
to
myObject* Object = new myObject() ;

shouldn't make any difference - you're just allocating the object on the heap instead of the stack.  The classic mistakes are around:
1) Never deleting the object (which will produce a memory leaking)
2) Or deleting it twice (which corrupts the free memory list for the heap and will crash your app later).

Neither should cause hBMP to be 0 - unless you're running out of available heap space?

Anyway best to post the code where you made the change to the allocation.

check the return of xxx.GetDC()->GetSafeHdc();


the xxx must be a valid CWnd, the one where you want to draw the bitmap into. you better would call the GetSafeHdc at a time where you already were drawing and where the devive context was valid therefore.

Have you checked your code block to allocate the bitmap is actually being run?  Put a breakpoint in it.

It was a good way to the solution but not the solution itself.
