vrf Dinging Windows

Question asked by VRFuser on Dec 30, 2005

The problem doesn't seem to be just that; In my case, savePanelImage works with color
depth set to 256 (default) or 65536, but does not work for any other settings including
down to 8 or 16.

Oops! Yes I see. Well, for capturing bitmaps software is supposed to check for valid
color depth (bits per pixel) *before* calling CreateCompatibleBitmap, but it looks like
VEE is just passing the given value through without checking first.

Exactly what a valid value is depends on your video hardware/driver,...
