Im a bit stuck, I need to convert a HBITMAP, bitmap into a CBitmap bitmap, can anyone tell me how to do this.

Ok CBitmap::FromHandle(HBITMAP) succeeds, however it only returns a temporary object, When I try to display it nothing happens.

Thanks in advance

Ive already tried ::FromHandle, but it only returns a temporary object. When I try to display the  object nothing happens.

Use the Attach method to permanently attach a HBITMAP handle to a CBitmap object.

You may need to detach when winished unless you want the HBITMAP bitmap to be deleted when the CBitmap object is destructed.
