Greetings, How do you display a GIF or a JPEG on a created dialog box or in a created window? Thanks!
Windows only has native support for .bmp. To display pictures in other formats, you need to decode them into DIB format first.
Anyone knows about some tuts on decoding them? PS: Iczelion: How about an optional cookie to remember your username and email adress? (I'm sucha lazy bastard :) ) Regards, JC
check out www.wotsit.org for docs on the file formats. there might even be some source code for them.
Hi As far as I know, X-Calibre has made a fast GIF decoder, which he states is faster than UPX. I have never used, so I cannot tell you the quality of it. Promethee made JPEGLib, a really small JPEG decoder. It does not support all the variations of the JPEG format, but I really like it. Its amazing. I think you can find promethee's JPEGLib on http://www.programmersheaven.com/. I doubt X-Calibre has made his GIF loader public, so you will have to ask him yourself. comrade
