Sets the bitmap-stretching mode for the StretchBlt member function.
Specifies the stretching mode. It can be any of the following values:
Performs a Boolean AND operation using the color values for the eliminated and existing pixels. If the bitmap is a monochrome bitmap, this mode preserves black pixels at the expense of white pixels.
Deletes the pixels. This mode deletes all eliminated lines of pixels without trying to preserve their information.
Maps pixels from the source rectangle into blocks of pixels in the destination rectangle. The average color over the destination block of pixels approximates the color of the source pixels.
After setting the HALFTONE stretching mode, an application must call the Win32 function SetBrushOrgEx to set the brush origin. If it fails to do so, brush misalignment occurs.
Windows 95/98: Same as BLACKONWHITE
Windows 95/98: Same as COLORONCOLOR
Windows 95/98: Same as HALFTONE.
Windows 95/98: Same as WHITEONBLACK
Performs a Boolean OR operation using the color values for the eliminated and existing pixels. If the bitmap is a monochrome bitmap, this mode preserves white pixels at the expense of black pixels.
The bitmap-stretching mode defines how information is removed from bitmaps that are compressed by using the function.
The BLACKONWHITE (STRETCH_ANDSCANS) and WHITEONBLACK (STRETCH_ORSCANS) modes are typically used to preserve foreground pixels in monochrome bitmaps. The COLORONCOLOR (STRETCH_DELETESCANS) mode is typically used to preserve color in color bitmaps.
The HALFTONE mode requires more processing of the source image than the other three modes; it is slower than the others, but produces higher quality images. Also note that SetBrushOrgEx must be called after setting the HALFTONE mode to avoid brush misalignment.
Additional stretching modes might also be available depending on the capabilities of the device driver.
