I am using VC 5.0 in an MFC SDI app and would like to be able to create push buttons in my dialogs that also draw an icon or bitmap along with its text.

Can you explain in detail how this is done, point me to where I can get all the details or best yet, have source or point me to source?

Thanks

CButton class functions SetBitmap() and SetIcon are what you need. you can find decription of these function in MFC CButton class help. If standard implementation doesn't answer to your requirements create owner draw button ovewrite OnDrawItem in parent class and perform custom painting
