Hi compiling the following code I'm getting the error "Main.cpp(75) : error C2440: '=' : cannot convert from 'HGDIOBJ' to 'HBRUSH' Conversion from 'void*' to pointer to non-'void' requires an explicit cast"

What's wrong with it? SONB

winclass.hbrBackground = GetStockObject(BLACK_BRUSH);
that line might have to be
winclass.hbrBackground = (HBRUSH)GetStockObject(BLACK_BRUSH);

edit: and next time try to tell us which line is line 75. the only reason why i even knew that was because i dealt with a similar problem before.
