Topic: image formats

AppGraphics manual states that images "are always saved as Windows Bitmap files, although other image types may be loaded". Which particular formats are supported by readimagefile subroutine? I have checked that png is not.

Re: image formats


The documentation should be more explicit, but you can see the supported formats when readimagefile is called without a filename (using an empty string in Fortran).  It supports BMP, JPG, ICO, WMF, EMF, and GIF. The list of supported formats is restricted by the underlying operating system call; AppGraphics itself doesn't include any image decoding routines.
