I used the LoadImage() function to load a certian .bmp file. I couldn't find a way to retrieve bitmap's width/ height in pixels. Can anyone help ?

I'm in good mood, I'll throw a snippet here [smile]

HBITMAP bitmap = (HBITMAP)LoadImage (hInstance, "myCoolBitmap.bmp", IMAGE_BITMAP, 0, 0, LR_LOADFROMFILE);

BITMAP bmpInfo;
GetObject (bitmap, sizeof (BITMAP), (void *)&bmpInfo);

int width = bmpInfo.bmWidth;
int height = bmpInfo.bmHeight;
//there are many other members in bmpInfo - check the documentation =)

doAllTheCoolThingsWithTheBitmap (bitmap, width, height);

//don't forget the clean-up!
DeleteObject (bitmap);
