The ICImageDecompress function decompresses an image without using initialization functions.

Syntax

HANDLE VFWAPI ICImageDecompress(
  HIC          hic,
  UINT         uiFlags,
  LPBITMAPINFO lpbiIn,
  LPVOID       lpBits,
  LPBITMAPINFO lpbiOut
);

Parameters

Handle to a decompressor opened with the ICOpen function. Specify NULL to have VCM select an appropriate decompressor for the compressed image.

uiFlags

Reserved; must be zero.

lpbiIn

Compressed input data format.

lpBits

Pointer to input data bits to compress. The data bits exclude header and format information.
