Subject: Re: GetDIB failed
In reply to: michael 's message, "GetDIB failed" on 08:13:04 08/04/01 Sat

I had the same problem with Windows 2000 and NT 4 and this is what I have changed and the "GetDIB Failed" went away.

procedure TDibGraphic.LoadFromClipboardFormat(
AFormat: Word; AData: THandle;
APalette: HPalette);
Bitmap : Graphics.TBitmap;
ScreenDC : HDC;
if (AFormat <> CF_BITMAP) or (AData = 0) then
raise EInvalidGraphic.Create(
Format(msgUnsupportedClipboardFormat, [AFormat]));

{ MB Jan 08, 2000. In 256 color video mode AssignFromBitmapHandle does not
properly handle the palette, so a simple workaround is to load the image in the
TBitmap class, then drawing it on the canvas of the TDibGraphic. }
ScreenDC := GetDC(0);
// if (GetDeviceCaps(ScreenDC, Windows.RASTERCAPS) and Windows.RC_PALETTE) <> 0 then
// begin
{ screen uses a palette }
Bitmap := Graphics.TBitmap.Create;
Bitmap.LoadFromClipboardFormat(AFormat, AData, APalette);
Self.NewImage( Bitmap.Width, Bitmap.Height, ifTrueColor, nil, 0, 0);
Self.Canvas.Draw(0, 0, Bitmap);
// end
// else
// AssignFromBitmapHandle(AData);
ReleaseDC(0, ScreenDC);
