GeneralUsing a single PNG resource for WinMobile apps [modified] Pin

On[^] there is a discussion on using png images with alpha transparency on mobile devices.

This is what I use to build all the images needed at all sizes and resolutions from a single PNG resource. The PNG resource MUST be of type "GIF" D'Oh! | :doh: to be loaded by ::SHLoadImageResource().

Of course, requires WTL Smile | :)

More in my next CP Mobile article, don't ask me when Laugh | :laugh: .

inline HIMAGELIST AtlLoadImageList(UINT uID, int cy, UINT uFlags = ILC_COLOR32)
	// Load uID PNG image strip resource 
	CBitmap bmpOrig = ::SHLoadImageResource(ModuleHelper::GetResourceInstance(), uID);
	CSize sizeOrig;

	// Size to request
	INT n = /,
		cx = cy * n;
	CBitmap bmp;
	DRA::ImageList_StretchBitmap(bmpOrig, &bmp.m_hBitmap, cx, cy, n, 1);

	// Create ImageList
	CImageList iml;
	iml.Create(cx, cy, uFlags, n, 0);
	iml.Add(bmp.IsNull() ? bmpOrig : bmp);
	return iml;

Actually ::SHLoadImageResource() loads the PNG as a 16bits DIB (native DDB format), so alpha is lost before the call to DRA::ImageList_StretchBitmap().

This is not always a problem, as all with end up as a 16bits DDB on the device graphic chip, but it may be if we need further manipulations with transparency.

Soon coming my Image component which addresses that issue.
