Hi there, I was wondering if anyone could help me with an error I have in my code. I'm working from the book 'Tricks of Windows Game Programming Gurus' and on chapter 4...drawing lines. This is the code giving me the trouble... HPEN green_pen = CreatePen(PS_SOLID, 1, RGB(255,255,255)); HPEN old_pen = SelectObject(hdc, green_pen); MoveToEx(hdc, 10,10,NULL); LineTo(hdc,160,60); SelectObject(hdc,old_pen); DeleteObject(green_pen); And this is the error... error C2440: 'initializing' : cannot convert from 'void *' to 'struct HPEN__ *' Any help greatly appreciated, Many Thanks, David

You don't say what line the error is on. I assume it's the second line. Try:

HPEN old_pen = (HPEN) SelectObject(hdc, green_pen);

Thanks very much Skizz. You were right, the error was on the 2nd line, well spotted!

The program is now working...I drew my first line! Yehh!

Cheers,

David
