I have NEVER done any graphics work in c++, and am trying to in my first application.
I have a picture control in my dialog that idealy would be filled with a picture i specify. However, i don;t know how.
I imagine that somehow i am going to have to set the filename of the picture, then draw the picture.
I have my picture control set up as a frame, and it has a member variable assigned to it (CStatic).
I am going to have an edit box where the filename is going to come from, and it may or may not change as the program runs. Is this possible?
I have, as i said , no experience. And all the tutorials i have found online have either been not what i need or too far above my head.
Oh, and one final wrinke. They may not be bitmaps, they may be gifs or jpgs as well.
thanks for help in advance.
