The BITMAPINFO type exposes the following members.


The bmiColors member contains one of the following: An array of RGBQUAD. The elements of the array that make up the color table. An array of 16-bit unsigned integers that specifies indexes into the currently realized logical palette. This use of bmiColors is allowed for functions that use DIBs. When bmiColors elements contain indexes to a realized logical palette, they must also call the following bitmap functions: CreateDIBitmap



The iUsage parameter of CreateDIBSection must be set to DIB_PAL_COLORS.

The number of entries in the array depends on the values of the biBitCount and biClrUsed members of the BITMAPINFOHEADER structure.

The colors in the bmiColors table appear in order of importance. For more information, see the Remarks section.

Specifies a BITMAPINFOHEADER structure that contains information about the dimensions of color format.
