Hello, I am learning to program using the WINAPI, not MFC, but I thought that someone here may be able to help me anyway. I am able to create a simple window, and draw shaped in it using GDI. But drawing shaped limits the things I can do, so I would like to know how to display a bitmap in my window. Please, I am rather young, so I dont have much money to purchase a book about windows programming, and I have searched the web, but I cant find anything that is very useful. If you know of any places that I can get a tutorial on how to display a bitmap in my window, please tell me. (I looked at the tutorial at reliablesoftware, so dont give me a link to that one please)
I use the Borland C++ 4.52 Compiler to compile and write my programs. Any help would be appreciated greatly. Thank you.
