Description

This blends the specified image into the miniwindow, on top of the specified rectangle.

Note that changes to miniwindows will not become visible until the output window is redrawn. This happens when new (visible) lines arrive from the MUD, or if you call WindowShow, or Redraw.

Parameters:

WindowName - the name of an existing miniwindow.

ImageId - an image id that you have previously loaded.

Left, Top, Right, Bottom - describes the destination rectangle. The blend image is merged with the contents of this rectangle to produce the blended result.

Opacity - the amount of opacity, between 0 and 1 (floating-point number). An opacity of 0 means you will not see the blend image. An opacity of 1 means the blend is fully applied. An opacity of 0.5 means the blended image is merged 50% with the original contents of the miniwindow.

SrcLeft, SrcTop, SrcRight, SrcBottom - the source rectangle in the original image (use 0,0,0,0 to get the whole image). Negative numbers for the SrcRight and SrcBottom parameters represent an offset from the bottom or right edge.

When blending, whichever rectangle is smaller is the one used for the width and height of the operation (the destination rectangle or the source rectangle).

See also BlendPixel for blending individual pixels.
