The only ones I've found only do black and white (and gray).

I'd appreciate any help on this.

PocketC's bitmap() function can only do monochrome (black & white) bitmaps.

You can do color/grayscale resource bitmaps with the PToolboxLib.

You can add color to PocketC built-in functions with this native library:

Extended Graphix Library (xGrfxLib) for PocketC



Pocket VisualForms

One catch with the xGrfxLib is that is doesn't do grayscale for pre-OS3.5 devices where the PToolboxLib will.

On the other hand, xGrfxLib does have a string bitmap function which handles color, but it's dog slow.

Resource bitmaps are really the way to go because they can be used in other non-pocketc platforms. Useful if ever want to upgrade your apps from PocketC to gcc/PRCTOOLS, codewarrior, etc for speed/size/feature reasons.
