DeleteMetaFile function

The DeleteMetaFile function deletes a Windows-format metafile or Windows-format metafile handle.

Note  This function is provided only for compatibility with Windows-format metafiles. Enhanced-format metafiles provide superior functionality and are recommended for new applications. The corresponding function for an enhanced-format metafile is DeleteEnhMetaFile.

Syntax


BOOL DeleteMetaFile(
  _In_  HMETAFILE hmf
);

Parameters

hmf [in]

A handle to a Windows-format metafile.

Return value

If the function succeeds, the return value is nonzero.

Remarks

If the metafile identified by the hmf parameter is stored in memory (rather than on a disk), its content is lost when it is deleted by using the DeleteMetaFile function.
