I want to create a Sprite containing an Animation which in turns contains Frames pointers to CBitmaps: Sprite* initSprite(){ Animation* animation = new Animation(); animation->addFrame("bitmap.bmp",500); Sprite* sprite = new Sprite(animation); return sprite; } Animation::addFrame looks like this: void Animation::addFrame(LPSTR fileName, long _duration){ totalDuration += _duration; try{ Frame* frame = new Frame(fileName, totalDuration); frames.push_back(frame); if (frames.size() != 0){ currentFrame = frames.begin(); } } catch (BitmapLoadingException){} } The Frame constructor calls LoadImage(), which should return a handle to a valid bitmap but fails to do so Animation::Frame::Frame(LPSTR fileName, long _endTime):bitmap(NULL){ HBITMAP hBitmap = (HBITMAP)LoadImage(NULL, fileName, IMAGE_BITMAP, 0, 0,LR_LOADFROMFILE); throw BitmapLoadingException(); bitmap->Attach(hBitmap); endTime = _endTime; } where bitmap is a Frame member pointer to a CBitmap I get a debugger message: hBitmap 0x36050c13 {unused=??? } HBITMAP__ * unused CXX0030: Error: expression cannot be evaluated int On one hand hBitmap is assigned a new value, but on the other is doesn't seem to refer to a valid bitmap (which is loaded ok by the same code in another program) Does anyone know what the reason may be?
