Detailed Description

Encapsulates various platform depended kinds of bitmaps.

Changes in 4.0

In Version 4.0 CBitmap was simplified. Previous versions supported drawing a color transparent of the bitmap. Since CBitmap supports alpha drawing of bitmaps since some time, it's now the only way of drawing a bitmap with some parts transparent.

Supported file formats

File format support is handled in a platform dependent way. On Windows GDI+ is used to import images. On Mac OS X CoreGraphics is used to import them. For cross platform compatibility it is recommended to use PNG files.

Loading Bitmaps

You load a bitmap via a CResourceDescription which can hold a string or a number. If you use names, you need to use the real filename with extension. Then it gets automaticly loaded on Mac OS X out of the Resources folder of the vst bundle. On Windows you also specify the resource in the .rc file with the real filename.

// using a number
1001 PNG DISCARDABLE "bmp01001.png"
// using a string
RealFileName.png PNG DISCARDABLE "RealFileName.png"
CBitmap* bitmap1 = new CBitmap (1001); // number
CBitmap* bitmap2 = new CBitmap ("RealFileName.png"); // string
