Getting the palette of a D3DFMT_P8 texture

I'm working on an application that needs to support using P8 textures, but the way it needs to use them is by converting them into a 32-bit ARGB image. To do this I need to somehow get the palette of the texture after it has been loaded, but I can't find anything after looking through the DirectX docs.

So, does anyone know how to get the palette of a texture? That's the last piece of the puzzle I'm missing.

I believe that a P8 texture is just up-converted to ARGB32 at load-time; if so then there is no palette to get. Hardware support for palettized textures is very patchy these days (and has been for quite some time).

You are correct. After spending a bit of time looking into the resulting texture data it is indeed being covereted to an equivelant of D3DFMT_A8R8G8B8. So this thread can be closed. Just need to treat the image as a 32-bit ARGB image and it's fine.
