In reply to: Jon Scott 's message, ""GetDIB Failed" error with Envision 1.1 (Delphi 5)" on 15:54:35 05/01/02 Wed

Hi Jon,

The correction is not yet the current beta code for version 2. In TDibGraphic.AssignFromBitmapHandle, replace the call to

GetMem(BitmapBits, ImageSize);


BitmapBits := PByteArray(GlobalAlloc( GMEM_FIXED, ImageSize ));
if BitmapBits = nil then
raise EEnvisionError.Create('GlobalAlloc failed');

and in the finally block use,


instead of

FreeMem(BitmapBits, ImageSize);

Best regards,
