I have had no end of trouble in displaying a bitmap. I would so appreciate it if someone could help, i have tried everything. I have attached a zip file containing my resource file rsrc.rc, my source file, bitmap.cpp and my header file resource1.h along with the bitmap i am trying to display. Currently the path to the bitmap in the .rc file is to the A: drive so you might want to change it and you might want to use a different bitmap. But basically i just can't get any bitmap to be displayed at all. If anyone could create themselves a project, copy my code in, build/compile it and see why it won't work i would be so grateful. I can get it to compile and it displays the "managed to load bitmap" message ok but then nothing is displayed.
I am using bloodshed dev C++.
