BITMAPFILEHEADER structure

The BITMAPFILEHEADER structure contains information about the type, size, and layout of a file that contains a DIB.

Syntax


typedef struct tagBITMAPFILEHEADER {
  WORD  bfType;
  DWORD bfSize;
  WORD  bfReserved1;
  WORD  bfReserved2;
  DWORD bfOffBits;
} BITMAPFILEHEADER, *PBITMAPFILEHEADER;
