Use this function to load a surface from a seekable SDL data source (memory or file).


SDL_Surface* SDL_LoadBMP_RW(SDL_RWops* src,
                            int        freesrc)

Function Parameters


the data source for the surface


non-zero to close the source after being read


Return Value

Returns a pointer to a new SDL_Surface or NULL if there was an error; call SDL_GetError() for more information.

Code Examples

You can add your code example here


The new surface should be freed with SDL_FreeSurface().


Note: When loading a 24-bit Windows BMP file, pixel data points are loaded as blue, green, red, and NOT red, green, blue (as one might expect).
