    Static Control Bitmap Style

    Hi guys, again sorry if there is a post like this looked and couldn't see anything

    what I need is to know how to give a static control a bitmap from a resource file. I can get the static control to display with text and with the bitmap style specified, but it wont display when the bitmap is set sending the STM_SETIMAGE message, my code for setting up the static control looks like this

    Code:
    void Setup_Button (Window* window, Button & button, char const * caption, int x, int y, int width, int height, DWORD exStyle)
    {
    	button._style = WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE | SS_BITMAP | SS_NOTIFY;
    	button._caption = caption;
    	button._exStyle = exStyle;
    	button._x = x;														// horizontal position of Button
    	button._y = y;														// vertical position od Button
    	button._width = width;												// Button width
    	button._height = height;											// Button height
    	button._hWndParent = window->hWnd;									// handle to parent or owner Button
    	button._data = 0;													// pointer to Button-creation data
    
    
    	Create_Button(window, button);
    }
    
    HWND Create_Button (Window* window, Button & button)
    {
    	button.hwnd = ::CreateWindowEx (
    		button._exStyle,
    		"STATIC",
    		button._caption,
    		button._style,
    		button._x,
    		button._y,
    		button._width,
    		button._height,
    		button._hWndParent,
    		NULL,
    		window->init.application->hInstance,
    		button._data);
    
    	if (button.hwnd == 0)
    		TerminateApplication(window);
    
    	LRESULT lResult = SendMessage(button.hwnd, STM_SETIMAGE, IMAGE_BITMAP, IDB_BITMAP1);
    
    	return button.hwnd;
    }
    thanks in advacnce for any help you can provide

    The windows board is a more appropriate board for this kind of question - moved.

    ***
    edit:

    You need to associate a bitmap handle with the static control, not the id of the bitmap resource. See STM_SETIMAGE.

    Use LoadImage to get the bitmap handle.
