Can I have a complete program that uses the functions
LoadBitmap() and DrawBitmap(). I tried doing:

hBitmap = LoadBitmap(hInstance, "Brick");

but I get NULL and therefore can't draw the bitmap.

First, this question really belongs in the Windows programming section.
Second, what is "DrawBitmap"?

Have you defined the resource "Brick" in your resource file?

Brick BITMAP DISCARDABLE "Brick.bmp"

You can get a pretty good test without this, by loading a system resource like OBM_RGARROW and trying to draw it on the screen. But if you are getting an error back from LoadBitmap, it is probably a resource issue. Check to make sure that the resource name is not all caps (implying that it is numeric).
