I'm trying to display a bitmap image on the client area of my window.
I'm using Charles Petzold's book "Programming Windows" but I can't seem to find how to do this?! I've looked in Chapter 14 and found a program that puts an icon file on your client area but that's not what I want.
I'm using MSVC++ ver 6.0 and Windows XP home edition.
I've added the image to my resource file and added it to my header file as well. I was just wondering how to draw it?! I can't believe I can't find it in my book!?
I was thinking you had to declare it in the window class declaration but I'm not sure where/how to put it.
Is it possible to draw the bitmap "on the fly" (ie: AFTER declaration of the window class)?
