Memory problems with bitmap on 7" LCD

Hi guys

I have a problem.

When i try to create a bitmap for background:

Bitmap LCD = new Bitmap(SystemMetrics.ScreenWidth, SystemMetrics.ScreenHeight);

I get system out of memory exception.

I can run the graphics demo without problem so i expect that i need to tell how mutch memory the program can access?

The project is minimal functionality so i don’t have any other code that takes up space.

Thanks in advance.


Yes large bitmaps have thier own heap. Please search the book for custom heap.

Hi Gus

Thanks for the quick reply i will look in to that.


I have this same issue. What book are you referring to Gus?

That is a real old post. See this please GHI Electronics – Where Hardware Meets Software

Thanks Gus!
