I've been learning winprogramming for several days now but I still haven't found out what EXACTLY are HWND,HBITMAP,HDC etc. I understand that theyre some sort of handles, but what type? No description of them on MSDN.
The problem arose when I wanted to find out information about a bitmap that I had attached to HBITMAP thingy.
Eventually I will probably have to write code for saving BMPs from HBITMAPS, but first I would like to have clear idea whats the mechanism behind all this.
To put it short: Can I access pixel and other data associated with my HBITMAP handle?
Most of you are probably laughing on the floor reading this but I can't help being a noob :P
Thanks for your time.
