SIMUL8 logo


A type of disk file that contains a graphical picture. These pictures can be on any size.

Bitmaps have a file extension .BMP and can be created using the Windows PAINTBRUSH utility (or many other graphics programs).

The larger a bitmap the longer it takes windows to display it. For this reason, if you regard the speed of your simulation as important, try to keep bitmaps small.

The size of bitmaps used for statics graphics (placed on the screen with the Graphics Palette) have no affect on speed.
