Hi, Is there any way of using a backbuffer and copying it directly to screen like in games programming (either Dos or DirectX/OpenGL). I have a program with basic rectangles and other stuff using GDI and when the window is repainted it flashes in a really anoying manner. Thanks Ciaran

Likely incorrect usage of WM_ERASEBKGND. Here''s some reading: http://www.catch22.org.uk/tuts/flicker.asp

Create a buffer the size of the screen and blit to that, then you blit this buffer to the screen when you''ve finished each frame.
