Hello....I want to convert HDC -> memory block (memory pointer)
because my program used RPC function on win95.
I need to transfer DC. but I can't use that User-marshalling on win95.
therefore i need to convert HDC -> memory block.
I used this method.
HDC -> Metafile -> memory pointer

-------------------------------------------------

srcDC = CreateEnhMetaFile(hDC, NULL, NULL, NULL);
BitBlt(srcDC, 0, 0, rect->right, rect->bottom, hDC, 0, 0, SRCCOPY);
hMetaFile = CloseEnhMetaFile(srcDC);
nSize = GetEnhMetaFileBits(hMetaFile, 0, NULL);
lpMem = (LPBYTE) GlobalAlloc(GPTR, nSize);
GetEnhMetaFileBits(hMetaFile, nSize, lpMem);

---------------------------------------------------

but very slow!!!
how can i use better method than metafile !!!
thank you!!!

You can create bitmap , draw all you own data into it , save it in memory file , when , use you RPC call . Other module will get this bitmap file, load bitmap and draw into it. When you can put bitmap on reall window DC. This methond is nice.
