    Exclamation Bitmap as background

    Hi all, I have to add a bitmap as background in my win32 program cause I'd like to substitute the horrible gray window color with a bitmap, is ti possible?
    Some link to see some examples.

    Yes, use a brush created with CreatePatternBrush for the hbrBackground member of the WNDCLASSEX structure.

    ...Assuming you aren't and never plan to target Windows 95, otherwise it gets tricky: you'll have to manage the background drawing yourself.
