Subject: Re: Also problems with graphic dimensions
In reply to: Kai Peters 's message, "Also problems with graphic dimensions" on 13:43:46 08/10/01 Fri

Hi Kai,

You are creating a TDibGraphic, then calling LoadFromFile. The base class TDibGraphic does not "know" any file formats. You need to use a derived class.

Here is a routine that should work:

procedure GetGraphicSize( const FileName : String;
var Width : Integer;
var Height : Integer );
Graphic : TDibGraphic;
Width := 0;
Height := 0;
Graphic := NewDibGraphic(FileName);
if Graphic = nil then
Exit; { not a registered graphic format }
Width := Graphic.Width;
Height := Graphic.Height;


Note that NewDibGraphic is used instead of TDibGraphic.Create. NewDibGraphic returns a graphic object related to the type of file, ie, jpg, png, ...

Best regards,
