Summary0038147: TBitmap.SetPalette does nothing
DescriptionAssignment of a palette to TBitmap.Palette (i.e. the call to TBitmap.SetPalette) doesn't work.
The program executes immediately the ancestor TGraphic.SetPalette that's a simple placeholder (i.e. does nothing).
TagsNo tags attached.

What is the color depth for the image? LCL asks for the palette info in raw image data for 4-bit and 8-bit only.

Color depth tried: pf1bit, pf4bit, pf8bit
N.B. The same code works perfectly in Delphi

Inheritance tree:
TGraphic -> TRasterImage -> TCustomBitmap -> TFPImageBitmap -> TBitmap
The only one that "implements" SetPalette is TGraphic but, as I wrote, only as an abstract procedure.
SetPalette must be implemented somewhere in between, possibly in TCustomBitmap where already GetPalette is overrided.

Which code? Can you please upload a simple example to reproduce the problem.

Well: whatever use of the assignment of a palette to a bitmap is faulty.
Anyway, a stupid example:

  ImageBitmap: TBitmap;

procedure SetPalette;
  MaxPaletteColors = 256;
  LocalPalette: PLogPalette;
  Color: integer;
  GetMem(LocalPalette, Sizeof(TLogPalette) + Sizeof(TPaletteEntry)*(MaxPaletteColors - 1));
  for Color:=0 to Pred(MaxPaletteColors) do
end; { SetPalette }
