This structure contains information about the dimensions and color format of a device-independent bitmap (DIB).
Specifies the number of bytes required by the structure
Specifies the width of the bitmap, in pixels
Specifies the height of the bitmap, in pixels
Specifies the number of planes for the target device.
This value must be 1.
Specifies the number of bits per pixel.
This value must be 1, 2, 4, 8, or 24.
The BITMAPCOREINFO structure combines the BITMAPCOREHEADER structure and a color table to provide a complete definition of DIB dimensions and colors. For more information about specifying a DIB, see BITMAPCOREINFO.
An application should use the information stored in the bcSize member to locate the color table in a BITMAPCOREINFO structure.
The following code sample shows how to locate the color table.
pColor = ((LPBYTE) pBitmapCoreInfo + (WORD) (pBitmapCoreInfo -> bcSize))
