NAME

       get_color_depth - Returns the current pixel color depth. Allegro game programming library.

SYNOPSIS

       #include <allegro.h>

       int get_color_depth(void);

DESCRIPTION

       Returns  the  current  pixel  format.  This  can  be very useful to know in order to write
       generic functions which select a different code path internally  depending  on  the  color
       depth being used.

       Note  that  the  function  returns  whatever  value  you  may  have  set  previously  with
       set_color_depth(), which can be different from the  current  color  depth  of  the  screen
       global  variable.  If  you  really  need  to  know  the  color  depth  of  the screen, use
       bitmap_color_depth().
