Converts an image file in the resource file to a bitmap file. A resource image file should be coded in the resource file as follows (using BMP as an example):
IDB_MYIMAGE_BMP GIF DISCARDABLE "MyImage.bmp".
|Please note that the example resource line above correctly specifies GIF, even though the resource itself is actually a bitmap. GIF should be specified for all image resources, regardless of their format. Supplying any specifier other than GIF results in failure to load the image resource.|
This function converts files of several types, including GIF (Graphics Interchange Format), PNG (Portable Network Graphics), JPG (Joint Photographic Experts Group), ICO (icon), and BMP (bitmap) file formats.
|When you no longer need the SHLoadImageResource Object call the DeleteObject function to delete it.|
