DeleteEnhMetaFile function

The DeleteEnhMetaFile function deletes an enhanced-format metafile or an enhanced-format metafile handle.

Syntax

BOOL DeleteEnhMetaFile(
  HENHMETAFILE hmf
);

Parameters

hmf

A handle to an enhanced metafile.

Return Value

If the function succeeds, the return value is nonzero.

If the function fails, the return value is zero.

Remarks

If the hemf parameter identifies an enhanced metafile stored in memory, the DeleteEnhMetaFile function deletes the metafile. If hemf identifies a metafile stored on a disk, the function deletes the metafile handle but does not destroy the actual metafile. An application can retrieve the file by calling the GetEnhMetaFile function.

Examples

For an example, see Opening an Enhanced Metafile and Displaying Its Contents.
