BGRABitmap textout does not work in simple console app
« on: March 28, 2019, 09:47:03 pm »
When I create FP console application on Win7/64bit, make BGRABitmap and try to insert text, I get an error

This is the code:

program project1;

Code: Pascal  [Select]
  1. uses classes, sysutils,
  2.      BGRABitmap, BGRABitmapTypes;
  3. var
  4.     bmp: TBGRABitmap;
  5.     x,y: integer;
  6.     p: TBGRAPixel;
  7. begin
  8.   bmp := TBGRABitmap.Create(800,600, BGRAblack);
  9.   p:=tbgrapixel.New(200,0,100);
  10.   bmp.fontname:='Arial';
  11.   bmp.fontheight:=20;
  12.   bmp.TextOut(200,200, 'help',p,taleftjustify);    // here I get the error
  13.   bmp.SaveToFile('pokusbgra.png');
  14.   bmp.free;
  15. end.


and this is the console error message:

I think you need to install package BGRABitmap4nogui to use it in console applications.

When I insert the bgrabitmappack4nogui.lpk into the project, I get compilation error in BGRABitmapTypes.pas line 1165:

Code: Pascal  [Select]
  1. const
  2.   ResourceTypes: array[1..7] of TResourceType =
  3.    ((ext: 'CUR'; code: RT_GROUP_CURSOR),   // this RT... constants are unknown
  4.     (ext: 'BMP'; code: RT_BITMAP),
  5.     (ext: 'ICO'; code: RT_GROUP_ICON),
  6.     (ext: 'DAT'; code: RT_RCDATA),
  7.     (ext: 'DATA'; code: RT_RCDATA),
  8.     (ext: 'HTM'; code: RT_HTML),
  9.     (ext: 'HTML'; code: RT_HTML));
  10.  

Those constants are defined in BGRAWinresource which is not included here. If I include it, there is another error at the same place:

Code: Pascal  [Select]
  1. bgrabitmaptypes.pas(1165,39) Error: Incompatible types: got "ShortInt" expected "PChar"
  2.

Do not include the lpk file in the project:  you should install the package in to Lazarus instead.  Do it from menu "Packages > Install/uninstall packages..." or "Packages > Open package file (.lpk)..."

OK, Ihave reported it as an issue, but now there is a question.

I have console app using BGRABitmap to create some image. How can I put some text into it for now? Is it possible to use some other type of bitmap, create the text in it and then copy the text rectangle into the BGRABitmap? I am not quite familiar with the FPC-Lazarus solutions and after searching in guides I did not find a way which i could understand enough. The BGRA is easy for me to use RGB values directly without any palette. Is there any simple way for it, as I don't know when the issue could be repaired and I need some solution quite soon. I tried the fpimage but could not use RGB directly, only through palette.

Include and initialize the LCL and use regular BGRABitmap on the console application.

I don't know how that can work without forms, someone else must know.

Great, I just added "uses Interfaces" and it started to work immediately. Thank you very much, Lainz!

Some update about it: the missing constants are indeed missing for fpGUI on Windows, maybe due to a relatively recent change in System unit.

I have applied a workaround (on dev branch) so that BGRABitmap compiles fine in this case.

Regarding text, you need to specify a directory where some fonts are. You need to have Arial in it at least. See test4fpgui example:
