Structure Data


Number of colors used in this palette


Pointer to SDL_Color structures that make up the palette.


Each pixel in an 8-bit surface is an index into the colors field of the SDL_Palette structure store in SDL_PixelFormat. A SDL_Palette should never need to be created manually. It is automatically created when SDL allocates a SDL_PixelFormat for a surface. The colors values of a SDL_Surfaces palette can be set with the SDL_SetColors.
