The CreatePalette function creates a logical palette.
HPALETTE CreatePalette( const LOGPALETTE *plpal );
A pointer to a LOGPALETTE structure that contains information about the colors in the logical palette.
If the function succeeds, the return value is a handle to a logical palette.
If the function fails, the return value is NULL.
An application can determine whether a device supports palette operations by calling the GetDeviceCaps function and specifying the RASTERCAPS constant.
Once an application creates a logical palette, it can select that palette into a device context by calling the SelectPalette function. A palette selected into a device context can be realized by calling the RealizePalette function.
When you no longer need the palette, call the DeleteObject function to delete it.
