SDL_CreateTextureFromSurface

Create a texture from an existing surface.

Syntax

SDL_Texture * SDL_CreateTextureFromSurface(SDL_Renderer * renderer, SDL_Surface * surface);

Function Parameters

renderer

the rendering context

surface

the SDL_Surface structure containing pixel data used to fill the texture

Return Value

Returns the created texture or NULL on failure; call SDL_GetError() for more information.

Remarks

The surface is not modified or freed by this function.

The SDL_TextureAccess hint for the created texture is SDL_TEXTUREACCESS_STATIC.

The pixel format of the created texture may be different from the pixel format of the surface. Use SDL_QueryTexture() to query the pixel format of the texture.

Code Examples

Uint32 rmask, gmask, bmask, amask;

/* SDL interprets each pixel as a 32-bit number, so our masks must depend
   on the endianness (byte order) of the machine */
#if SDL_BYTEORDER == SDL_BIG_ENDIAN
    rmask = 0xff000000;
    gmask = 0x00ff0000;
    bmask = 0x0000ff00;
    amask = 0x000000ff;
#else
    rmask = 0x000000ff;
    gmask = 0x0000ff00;
    bmask = 0x00ff0000;
    amask = 0xff000000;
#endif

SDL_Surface *surface = SDL_CreateRGBSurface(0, 640, 480, 32, rmask, gmask, bmask, amask);

if (surface == NULL) {
    fprintf(stderr, "CreateRGBSurface failed: %s\n", SDL_GetError());
    exit(1);
}


SDL_Texture *texture = SDL_CreateTextureFromSurface(renderer, surface);

if (texture == NULL) {
    fprintf(stderr, "CreateTextureFromSurface failed: %s\n", SDL_GetError());
    exit(1);
}

SDL_FreeSurface(surface);
surface = NULL;
SDL_CreateTexture
SDL_DestroyTexture
