Syntax of imagesize

#include <graphics.h>
unsigned imagesize(int left, int top, int right, int bottom);

Description of imagesize

imagesize determines the size of the memory area required to store a bit
image. If the size required for the selected image is greater than or
equal to 64K - 1 bytes, imagesize returns 0xFFFF (-1).

Example of imagesize

/* imagesize example */
#include <graphics.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <conio.h>
#define ARROW_SIZE 10
void draw_arrow(int x, int y);
int main(void)
   /* request autodetection */
   int gdriver = DETECT, gmode, errorcode;
   void *arrow;
   int x, y, maxx;
   unsigned int size;
   /* initialize graphics and local variables */
   initgraph(&gdriver, &gmode, "");
   /* read result of initialization */
   errorcode = graphresult();
   if (errorcode != grOk) {  /* an error occurred */
printf("Graphics error: %s\n", grapherrormsg(errorcode));
printf("Press any key to halt:");
exit(1);   /* terminate with an error code */
   maxx = getmaxx();
   x = 0;
   y = getmaxy() / 2;
   /* draw the image to be grabbed */
   draw_arrow(x, y);
   /* calculate the size of the image */
   size = imagesize(x, y-ARROW_SIZE, x+(4*ARROW_SIZE), y+ARROW_SIZE);
   /* allocate memory to hold the image */
   arrow = malloc(size);
   /* grab the image */
   getimage(x, y-ARROW_SIZE, x+(4*ARROW_SIZE), y+ARROW_SIZE, arrow);
   /* repeat until a key is pressed */
   while (!kbhit()) {
/* erase old image */
putimage(x, y-ARROW_SIZE, arrow, XOR_PUT);
if (x >= maxx)
    x = 0;
/* plot new image */
putimage(x, y-ARROW_SIZE, arrow, XOR_PUT);
   /* clean up */
   return 0;
void draw_arrow(int x, int y)
   /* draw an arrow on the screen */
   moveto(x, y);
   linerel(4*ARROW_SIZE, 0);
   linerel(-2*ARROW_SIZE, -1*ARROW_SIZE);
   linerel(0, 2*ARROW_SIZE);
   linerel(2*ARROW_SIZE, -1*ARROW_SIZE);
