    HBITMAP to BITMAP

    Does anyone know of an easy way of converting HBITMAP to BITMAP so I can have the bitmap info. when I use GetObject() i can't access the info of the pixels. any help? It's probably really easy, but i'm not figuring it out.

    Have you tried LockResource()?

    This should give a pointer to the data

    There is

    Bitmap::FromHBITMAP(hbm, hpal) in MSVC requiring GDI+ in non NT systems.

    Or GetDIBits() may help.
