GetBitmapDimensionEx function (wingdi.h)

The GetBitmapDimensionEx function retrieves the dimensions of a compatible bitmap. The retrieved dimensions must have been set by the SetBitmapDimensionEx function.

[in] hbit

Return value

If the function succeeds, the return value is nonzero.

The function returns a data structure that contains fields for the height and width of the bitmap, in .01-mm units. If those dimensions have not yet been set, the structure that is returned will have zeros in those fields.
