    Bitmap in about box

    Hi, I'm using Dev-C++ 4.9.6.7 and i wrote some windows api stuff in the resource script to show an about box:

    Code:
    IDD_ABOUT DIALOG DISCARDABLE  0, 0, 250, 100
    STYLE DS_MODALFRAME | DS_CENTER | WS_POPUP | WS_CAPTION | WS_SYSMENU
    CAPTION "About This program"
    FONT 8, "MS Sans Serif"
    BEGIN
        
        PUSHBUTTON "&Okay",IDC_AOK,100,85,51,14
    END
    I want to show a bitmap in this about box but I don't know how. Please help.

    You can add a BMP in the resource editor if it is included in the app's resources

    or

    you can load it from file with LoadImage() ect and draw it to the screen.

    I would start with the rescource editor as windows will then handle the WM_PAINT for the image.
