Default Read bitmap image?

hi all,

can i have a sample C code on how read-in each line of the bitmap, and then browse through each pixel
and check its color. as soon as the color changes, stop reading, read next line.
the background is of the same color. read
through all lines then take the line that has max width.

Hi Richard,

I'm assuming you made a typo when you entered C (it should have been C#). Anyway, to get the color of pixels in a bitmap you can just use the Bitmap class. There is a method GetPixel. You pass it the x and y co-ordinates of the pixel you want to test and it returns the color.

The following links have some C source code to read and process BMP files


It is not how much we do,
but how much love we put in the doing.
