HistDIBEqualization  Method

Description         The result is put to a newly created DIB and the source DIB is unmodified. The result DIB has a uniform histogram. It works with 4, 8 or 24 bits/pixel. In case of 24 bits/pixel, the operation is made separately on the R, G, B channels. In case of 4 or 8 bits/pixel, the source DIB must contain grayscale image and the palette values in the source DIB must be monotone increasing. It makes no sense to use this function in case of 1 bits/pixel.

Syntax                 lRet = [BIFilter.]HistDIBEqualization  Dib iShowProgress hWnd

Remarks             lRet                         LONGLONG Handle of the newly created DIB on success or 0 on failure.

                            Dib                          LONGLONG Source DIB.

                            iShowProgress       short                This parameter specifies the displaying of the progressbar and the preview dialog.

Available values:

DISPLAY_NONE (0) - The progressbar and the preview dialog will not display before the conversion.

DISPLAY_PROGRESS (1) - The progressbar will display during the  procedure.

DISPLAY_DIALOG (2) - The preview dialog will display before conversion. This dialog shows the part of the image before and after removing red eye.

DISPLAY_BOTH (3) - The progressbar and the preview dialog will display.

IMPORTANT: The preview dialog will only display, if there is BIDlgs32.dll installed.           

                            hWnd                     LONGLONG Handler of the parent window.

Result pixel value = Maximum pixel value - Source pixel value. Maximum pixel values: 1 bits/pixel: 1,   4 bits/pixel: 15,   8 bits/pixel: 255,   24 bits/pixel: 255 for each channel. There are three channels on 24 bits/pixel (R, G, B).
