int SDL_VideoModeOK(int width, int height, int bpp, Uint32 flags);

DESCRIPTION

SDL_VideoModeOK returns 0 if the requested mode is not supported under any bit depth, or returns the bits-per-pixel of the closest available mode with the given width, height and requested surface flags (see SDL_SetVideoMode).

The bits-per-pixel value returned is only a suggested mode. You can usually request and bpp you want when setting the video mode and SDL will emulate that color depth with a shadow video surface.

The arguments to SDL_VideoModeOK are the same ones you would pass to SDL_SetVideoMode

EXAMPLE

SDL_Surface *screen;
Uint32 bpp;
.
.
.
printf("Checking mode [email protected].
");
bpp=SDL_VideoModeOK(640, 480, 16, SDL_HWSURFACE);

if(!bpp){ printf("Mode not available. "); exit(-1); }

printf("SDL Recommends [email protected]%dbpp. ", bpp); screen=SDL_SetVideoMode(640, 480, bpp, SDL_HWSURFACE); . .
