Thanks, I appreciate all the info.
I can find almost all that you mentioned at msdn. I can't find anything about "member", though.
Where can I find more info on that?
This question came up because some examples for using the GDI from msdn and other tutorials,
use the DC for the client area and do the drawing directly onto it.
Should every graphics operation happen only in a memory DC then?
Are there any cases where you can draw using the DC for the client area?
