The SetWinMetaFileBits function converts a metafile from the older Windows format to the new enhanced format and stores the new metafile in memory.
HENHMETAFILE SetWinMetaFileBits( UINT nSize, const BYTE *lpMeta16Data, HDC hdcRef, const METAFILEPICT *lpMFP );
The size, in bytes, of the buffer that contains the Windows-format metafile.
A handle to a reference device context.
A pointer to a METAFILEPICT structure that contains the suggested size of the metafile picture and the mapping mode that was used when the picture was created.
If the function succeeds, the return value is a handle to a memory-based enhanced metafile.
If the function fails, the return value is NULL.
Windows uses the reference device context's resolution data and the data in the METAFILEPICT structure to scale a picture. If the hdcRef parameter is NULL, the system uses resolution data for the current output device. If the lpmfp parameter is NULL, the system uses the MM_ANISOTROPIC mapping mode to scale the picture so that it fits the entire device surface. The hMF member of the METAFILEPICT structure is not used.
When the application no longer needs the enhanced metafile handle, it should delete it by calling the DeleteEnhMetaFile function.
The handle returned by this function can be used with other enhanced-metafile functions.
If the reference device context is not identical to the device in which the metafile was originally created, some GDI functions that use device units may not draw the picture correctly.
