View Full Version : VB6 Run-time error 48

05-10-2004, 07:06 AM
I am trying to use the API in a graphics program.In Visual Basic 6 The StretchBit function resizes images.I copied this from a book and put it in a Module (general declaration):

Declare Function StretchBit% Lib "GDI" (ByVal hDC%, ByVal X%, ByVal Y%, ByVal nWidth%, ByVal nHeight%, ByVal hSourceDC%, ByVal xSource%, ByVal ySource%, ByVal nSourceWidth%, ByVal nSourceHeight%, ByVal dwRop&)

When I run the program I get the error 48 which is "file not found:GDI".
(I am new to VB6,so a little help here?)

Shouldn't it be "gdi32"?

I had similar troubles when i first started with VB and APIs.

I found a program on the internet that gave you the Api function with all the parameters listed along with examples of how to implement them.

Thanx both of you-

I'll have to post later when I've had time to run my program, and install the exe I downloaded.

I don't want to get my hopes up, but this will allow me to fulfill a greater destiny....altering the course of human events for the betterment of all life....

Got to run, empty the trash....
