i want to use a bitmap file from my computer in c++.
i just dont know the code.
can anyone help????
what do you want to do with the image?
Maybe you are trying to do graphics ??? .. then i suggest allegro C/C++ graphics lib as it is both a beginners lib and efficient .
Once installed, Do something like ...
BITMAP *bmp = loadbmp("name_of_bmp_img", 0 ); BITMAP *buffer = creat_bitmap(SCREEN_W, SCREEN_H); clear_to_color(screen, makecol(255,255,255)); draw_sprite(buffer, bmp, bmp->w, bmp->h); draw_sprite(screen, buffer, 0, 0 ); // double buffering
P:S ... this is just a code sample ... it should display your bitmap image on the screen..
Purpose of that code is just to show you how easy ( pretty much ) it is with the allegro library ... compared to other sophisticated and much more complex libraries like OPENGL ... Another library you should consider is the SDL lib ....
