capPaletteAuto macro

The capPaletteAuto macro requests that the capture driver sample video frames and automatically create a new palette. You can use this macro or explicitly call the WM_CAP_PAL_AUTOCREATE message.

Syntax


BOOL capPaletteAuto(
    hwnd,
    iFrames,
    iColors
);

Parameters

hwnd

Handle to a capture window.

iFrames

Number of frames to sample.

iColors

Number of colors in the palette. The maximum value for this parameter is 256.

Return value

Returns TRUE if successful or FALSE otherwise.

If an error occurs and an error callback function is set using the capSetCallbackOnError macro, the error callback function is called.

Remarks

The sampled video sequence should include all the colors you want in the palette. To obtain the best palette, you might have to sample the whole sequence rather than a portion of it.
