colorDepth Property

Deprecated. Retrieves the number of bits per pixel used for colors on the destination device or buffer.

Syntax

XML N/A
Scripting [ iBitsPerPixel = ] clientCaps.colorDepth

Possible Values

iBitsPerPixel Integer that receives one of the following values.
1, 4, 8, 15, 16, 24, 32
Off-screen buffering occurs based on the specified number of bits per pixel. The value 15 specifies 16 bits per pixel, in which only 15 bits are used in a 5-5-5 layout of red-green-blue (RGB) values.

The property is read-only. The property has no default value.

Remarks

 New for Windows Internet Explorer 9 As of Internet Explorer 9, this property is deprecated. Applications that depend on this property should be redesigned.

 New for Internet Explorer 9 Internet Explorer 9 always returns a value of 32.

To select an appropriate color to return to the browser, retrieve the property value through script.

If bufferDepth is 0 or -1 , colorDepth is equal to the bits-per-pixel value for the screen or printer. If bufferDepth is nonzero, colorDepth is equal to bufferDepth.
