Use dibsections. One of the parameters is a pointer to the
dibsection's memory. 1.) Create dibsection. 2.) Select into
memory context 3.) Draw to dibsection 4.) Save to bitmap file.
Tis really easy. Only drawback I can think of if I remember
right is that a dibsection is limited to 16 MB or something
like that.
