EngGradientFill function (winddi.h)

The EngGradientFill function shades the specified primitives.

Syntax

ENGAPI BOOL EngGradientFill(
       SURFOBJ   *psoDest,
       CLIPOBJ   *pco,
       XLATEOBJ  *pxlo,
       TRIVERTEX *pVertex,
       ULONG     nVertex,
       PVOID     pMesh,
       ULONG     nMesh,
       RECTL     *prclExtents,
       POINTL    *pptlDitherOrg,
  [in] ULONG     ulMode
);

Parameters

psoDest

Pointer to the SURFOBJ structure that identifies the surface on which to draw.

pco

Pointer to a CLIPOBJ structure. The CLIPOBJ_Xxx service routines are provided to enumerate the clip region as a set of rectangles. This enumeration limits the area of the destination that is modified. Whenever possible, GDI simplifies the clipping involved.

pxlo

Pointer to a XLATEOBJ structure. This structure indicates how color indices should be translated between 32 bpp RGB format and the destination. The driver is responsible for converting the input COLOR16 color values to RGB.

pVertex

Pointer to an array of TRIVERTEX structures, with each entry containing position and color information. The TRIVERTEX structure is described in the Microsoft Windows SDK documentation.

nVertex

Specifies the number of TRIVERTEX structures in the array to which pVertex points.

pMesh

Pointer to an array of structures that define the connectivity of the TRIVERTEX elements to which pVertex points.

When rectangles are being drawn, pMesh points to an array of GRADIENT_RECT structures, each of which specifies two TRIVERTEX elements that define a rectangle. The TRIVERTEX elements can represent any diagonally-opposed pair of rectangle vertices. Rectangle drawing is lower-right exclusive. Both TRIVERTEX and GRADIENT_RECT are defined in the Windows SDK documentation.

When triangles are being drawn, pMesh points to an array of GRADIENT_TRIANGLE structures, each of which specifies the three TRIVERTEX elements that define a triangle. Triangle drawing is lower-right exclusive. The GRADIENT_TRIANGLE structure is defined in the Windows SDK documentation.

nMesh

Specifies the number of elements in the array to which pMesh points.

prclExtents

Pointer to a RECTL structure that defines the area in which the gradient drawing is to occur. The points are specified in the coordinate system of the destination surface. This parameter is useful in estimating the size of the drawing operations.

pptlDitherOrg

Pointer to a POINTL structure that defines the origin on the surface for dithering. The upper-left pixel of the dither pattern is aligned with this point.

[in] ulMode

Specifies the current drawing mode and how to interpret the array to which pMesh points. This parameter can be one of the following values:

GRADIENT_FILL_RECT_H

The pMesh parameter points to an array of GRADIENT_RECT structures. Each rectangle is to be shaded from left to right.

GRADIENT_FILL_RECT_V

The pMesh parameter points to an array of GRADIENT_RECT structures. Each rectangle is to be shaded from top to bottom.

GRADIENT_FILL_TRIANGLE

The pMesh parameter points to an array of GRADIENT_TRIANGLE structures.

Return value

EngGradientFill returns TRUE upon success. Otherwise, it reports an error and returns FALSE.

Remarks

The driver should call EngGradientFill if it has hooked DrvGradientFill and it is called to do something that it does not support.

The formulas used to compute the color value at each pixel depend on the value of ulMode as follows:

GDI ignores the alpha value of the vertices, leaving the alpha channel unchanged for surfaces that support alpha.
