GDI:HPEN

Recommended Posts

Drizzt DoUrden''s GDI: Hpen thread got deleted. The answer to his question was: if you are using C: HPEN old_pen = (HPEN)SelectObject(hdc, hpen); if you are using C++: HPEN old_pen = static_cast(SelectObject(hdc, hpen)); This is because you have a void *. A void* is a pointer to a block of memory, but you don''t know what the memory is. You need to cast it. Check Stroustroup''s book for a good explanation of casts in C++. Scott Meyer''s Essential C++ is also a good reference.
