Converting a 24-bit bitmap (with 256 unique colors) to an 8-bit bitmap without changing the colors???
I carefully constructed a 24-bit bitmap to have exactly 256
I converted this bitmap to use an optimized 8-bit palette
retaining the exact same 256 colors using an image editor.
I compared all of these images to the original using the
BeyondCompare diff tool, they all has identical pixels.
image.Load("256colors.bmp"); // 24-bit
The colors now have been changed by several shades.
To fix this I have to create my own color index table
precisely defining the colors that I want to use, and then
copy the ...need a bit of help.....
I have generated a form that shows money amounts. yet i want two colums
that separates the dollar amount from cents. I have for example colum
*H* as the dollar amount and colum *I* as the cent amounts. Now i have
tried Format Cell to set it up but it doesnt work. for example i tried
the custom format for the dollar amount and it rounds it. and if
there's an amount of 1108.83 the cell will show 1109. so it does not
show the true value amount. i also tried the same approach with the

would have to enter the same amount o...Music tracks not playing (192 bit)
I recently got a new computer. All my music tracks worked on the old one .
To transfer my files over, I used a portable hard drive as the middle man.
All the files were successfully copies over to the new computer, but
annoyingly a lot of my music tracks do not work. They will play for about 2
seconds, although in a scratchy broken way, similar to the old dial up tone.
I have noticed that the tracks that are not playing are all 192 bits. I
have updates the sound driver, updated Windows, Windows media player and
still no luck.
In addition, I am using Vista 64 bit.

I am having difficulty in exploiting the ‘On Dirty’ property of forms.
Sometimes it works as expected but, more often than not, changes to controls
bound to table fields fail to trigger the On Dirty event. I am then forced
to associate each amendable control with an After Update event. That
invariably works but, with a dozen or more amendable controls on a form, the
resulting code can look pretty clumsy. There is something that I have
clearly not understood. Can anyone enlighten me? I just want to take
appropriate action when any control on a form is updated or amended.

I want to save 24-bit BMP images as 8-bit PNG files, where
the number of unique colors <= 256. I don't want windows to
automatically screw up the colors and use its own
selections. I want to keep the original unique 256 colors,
exactly as they are in the original.
How do I force windows to not screw up the colors? Why
isn't NOT screwing up the colors the default?

Hello, as I've mentioned in some other post I'm making a simple "Game of
Life" with a small, fixed-sized grid. Anyway, the function I used for
drawing the actual grid was written ages ago when doing some pure Win32
programming and it was full of magic numbers, assuming a 16*16 grid. I
tried to rewrite it without magic numbers and to take the actual size
into consideration. Right now each cell in the grid is 20*20 and I have
horizontal and vertical bars that are four pixels wide. The x and y
offset is 20 pixels.
Hope I explained it properly, here's the code:

...24-bit bitmap with transparency on a button. How to?
I have to freshen up a UI on an app that I wrote few years ago. I managed
to put 24-bit and 32-bit images on toolbars. It was not that difficult
because I could simply override Create() and set image lists with whatever I
wanted based on the current display settings and/or OS.
I then moved to buttons with bitmaps and got stuck. I can't find a clean
way of putting 24-bit bitmaps on buttons. The app has to run on W2K and up.
Initially I thought that I could use custom draw when the app is run on XP
and fallback to the default handling of bitmaps on W2K. The XP side with

I have a 24-bit bitmap of size 32 x 32, which I would like to use as

1. Can an icon have more than 256 colors? VStudio and some other icon
editor applications (which I downloaded from web) do not allow more
than 256 colors for icon files.
2. If #1 is not correct (i.e. if icon CAN have more than 256 colors),
how do I use my 32 x 32 bitmap for application icon?

The way to test this is to create a 24-bit icon and test it. Do this by

A clean install is the only way you can go from 32-bit to 64-bit. Boot
with the 64-bit disc and let it find the current installation then
delete the partition with 32-bit Win 7 and proceed from there.
