Create an SDL_PixelFormat structure corresponding to a pixel format.


SDL_PixelFormat * SDL_CreatePixelFormat(Uint32 pixel_format);

Function Parameters

pixel_format one of the SDL_PixelFormatEnum values

Return Value

Returns the new SDL_PixelFormat structure or NULL on failure; call SDL_GetError() for more information.


Returned structure may come from a shared global cache (i.e. not newly allocated), and hence should not be modified, especially the palette. Weird errors such as Blit combination not supported may occur.


This function is available since SDL 3.0.0.
