Initializes a standard, optimal, or custom color palette

#include <GDIPlus.au3>
_GDIPlus_PaletteInitialize ( $iEntries [, $iPaletteType = $GDIP_PaletteTypeOptimal [, $iOptimalColors = 0 [, $bUseTransparentColor = True [, $hBitmap = Null]]]] )


$iEntries Number of Entries.
$iPaletteType [optional] PaletteType constant that specifies the palette type ($GDIP_PaletteType*).
$iOptimalColors [optional] Integer that specifies the number of colors you want to have in an optimal palette based on a specified bitmap.
If this parameter is greater than 0, the palettetype parameter must be set to PaletteTypeOptimal and the bitmap parameter must point to a Bitmap object.
$bUseTransparentColor [optional] Boolean value that specifies whether to include the transparent color in the palette.
Set to TRUE to include the transparent color; otherwise FALSE.
$hBitmap [optional] Handle of a Bitmap object for which an optimal palette will be created.

Return Value

Success: a DllStruct Palette:
Flags - $iPaletteFlags
Count - $iEntries
ARGB - UINT Array of ARGB colors
Failure: sets the @error flag to non-zero, @extended may contain GPSTATUS error code ($GPIP_ERR* see GPIPlusConstants.au3).
