Status enumeration (gdiplustypes.h)

The Status enumeration indicates the result of a Windows GDI+ method call.

Syntax

typedef enum Status {
  Ok = 0,
  GenericError = 1,
  InvalidParameter = 2,
  OutOfMemory = 3,
  ObjectBusy = 4,
  InsufficientBuffer = 5,
  NotImplemented = 6,
  Win32Error = 7,
  WrongState = 8,
  Aborted = 9,
  FileNotFound = 10,
  ValueOverflow = 11,
  AccessDenied = 12,
  UnknownImageFormat = 13,
  FontFamilyNotFound = 14,
  FontStyleNotFound = 15,
  NotTrueTypeFont = 16,
  UnsupportedGdiplusVersion = 17,
  GdiplusNotInitialized = 18,
  PropertyNotFound = 19,
  PropertyNotSupported = 20,
  ProfileNotFound = 21
} ;

Constants

 
Ok
Value: 0
Indicates that the method call was successful.
GenericError
Value: 1
Indicates that there was an error on the method call, which is identified as something other than those defined by the other elements of this enumeration.
InvalidParameter
Value: 2
Indicates that one of the arguments passed to the method was not valid.
OutOfMemory
Value: 3
Indicates that the operating system is out of memory and could not allocate memory to process the method call. For an explanation of how constructors use the OutOfMemory status, see the Remarks section at the end of this topic.
ObjectBusy
Value: 4
Indicates that one of the arguments specified in the API call is already in use in another thread.
InsufficientBuffer
Value: 5
Indicates that a buffer specified as an argument in the API call is not large enough to hold the data to be received.
NotImplemented
Value: 6
Indicates that the method is not implemented.
Win32Error
Value: 7
Indicates that the method generated a Win32 error.
WrongState
Value: 8
Indicates that the object is in an invalid state to satisfy the API call. For example, calling
Pen::GetColor from a pen that is not a single, solid color results in a WrongState status.
Aborted
Value: 9
Indicates that the method was aborted.
FileNotFound
Value: 10
Indicates that the specified image file or metafile cannot be found.
ValueOverflow
Value: 11
Indicates that the method performed an arithmetic operation that produced a numeric overflow.
AccessDenied
Value: 12
Indicates that a write operation is not allowed on the specified file.
UnknownImageFormat
Value: 13
Indicates that the specified image file format is not known.
FontFamilyNotFound
Value: 14
Indicates that the specified font family cannot be found. Either the font family name is incorrect or the font family is not installed.
FontStyleNotFound
Value: 15
Indicates that the specified style is not available for the specified font family.
NotTrueTypeFont
Value: 16
Indicates that the font retrieved from an
HDC or
LOGFONT is not a TrueType font and cannot be used with GDI+.
UnsupportedGdiplusVersion
Value: 17
Indicates that the version of GDI+ that is installed on the system is incompatible with the version with which the application was compiled.
GdiplusNotInitialized
Value: 18
Indicates that the GDI+API is not in an initialized state. To function, all GDI+ objects require that GDI+ be in an initialized state. Initialize GDI+ by calling
GdiplusStartup.
PropertyNotFound
Value: 19
Indicates that the specified property does not exist in the image.
PropertyNotSupported
Value: 20
Indicates that the specified property is not supported by the format of the image and, therefore, cannot be set.
ProfileNotFound
Value: 21
Indicates that the color profile required to save an image in CMYK format was not found.

Remarks

If you construct a GDI+ object and then immediately call the GetLastStatus method of that object, you can determine whether the constructor succeeded or failed. In such cases, GetLastStatus might return OutOfMemory even though there was plenty of memory available to create the object. Several GDI+ constructors set the status to OutOfMemory when they fail regardless of the reason for failure.
