    TextOut()

    For a windows program i'm making I need to get mutliple strings printed on the screen.

    Just wondering is there was an easier way then double BeginPain()

    Code:
    LRESULT CALLBACK WndProc(HWND hwnd, UINT message, WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam)
    {
    PAINTSTRUCT paintStruct;							
    char string[] = "Testing";
    char string1[] = "Testing Two";
    HDC hDC;
    	
    switch (message)
    {
     case WM_CLOSE:
      PostQuitMessage(0);
      return 0;
      break;
    
     case WM_PAINT:					
      hDC = BeginPaint(hwnd, &paintStruct);
      SetTextColor(hDC, COLORREF(0x0000FF));	
      TextOut(hDC, 150, 150, string, sizeof(string)-1);	
      EndPaint(hwnd, &paintStruct);
      hDC = BeginPaint(hwnd, &paintStruct);
      SetTextColor(hDC, COLORREF(0xFF0000));
      TextOut(hDC, 150, 200, string1, sizeof(string)-1);
      EndPaint(hwnd, &paintStruct);
      return 0;
      break;
    
     default:
     break;
    }
    
    return (DefWindowProc(hwnd, message, wParam, lParam));
    }

    Why are you calling BeginPaint/EndPaint twice? It needs to be only called once at the start, and once at the end. You can have as much drawing code in the middle as necessary.

    Code:
    case WM_PAINT:					
      hDC = BeginPaint(hwnd, &paintStruct);
      SetTextColor(hDC, COLORREF(0x0000FF));	
      TextOut(hDC, 150, 150, string, sizeof(string)-1);	
      SetTextColor(hDC, COLORREF(0xFF0000));
      TextOut(hDC, 150, 200, string1, sizeof(string)-1);
      EndPaint(hwnd, &paintStruct);
      return 0;
      break;
