capPaletteAuto macro

The capPaletteAuto macro requests that the capture driver sample video frames and automatically create a new palette. You can use this macro or explicitly call the WM_CAP_PAL_AUTOCREATE message.

void capPaletteAuto(
   hwnd,
   iFrames,
   iColors
);

Parameters

hwnd

Handle to a capture window.

iFrames

Number of frames to sample.

iColors

Number of colors in the palette. The maximum value for this parameter is 256.
