hi...

i do it this way:

// Snap -------------------------------
HDC hDeskTopDC; // DeviceContext
int nDeskTopBits; // Result

if(!(hDeskTopDC=GetDC(NULL)))
// Your ErrorHandling here

nDeskTopBit = GetDeviceCaps(hDeskTopDC,BITSPIXEL);

if(!(ReleaseDC(NULL,hDeskTopDC)))
// Your ErrorHandling here

// BITSPIXEL : Number of adjacent color bits for each pixel.
// PLANES : Number of color planes.
// Snap --------------------------------
