#1751 closed enhancement (fixed)

[PATCH] Adds a transparent color index for handling empty CADRG subblocks

Reported by: Even Rouault Owned by: Even Rouault
Priority: normal Milestone: 1.5.0
Component: GDAL_Raster Version: 1.4.2
Severity: normal Keywords: CADRG nitf
Cc: warmerdam


Currently, NITFRasterBand::IReadBlock returns a block with color index 0 if there is no noDataValue (see code below). Unfortunatelly a lot of CADRG products (no to say all of them) do not define a transparent color. My patch consists in adding an extra color index for transparency if there is none in the product. Thus, empty subblocks will be displayed with this transparent color.

    else /* nBlockResult == BLKREAD_NULL */
        if( psImage->bNoDataSet )
            memset( pImage, psImage->nNoDataValue,
            memset( pImage, 0,

        return CE_None;

This patch looks ok. Go ahead and apply it, but only in trunk. I don't want risky behavior changes in 1.4.3.

PS. please include "nitf" in keywords for all nitf driver bugs.

In r11923 I changed this code to only add the transparent LUT entry if there is a LUT. Fixes test stream crash.
