How do I load a huge bitmap to be the background of a CMiniFrame?
Below is the code i used to create the miniframe.  

int CMainFrame::OnCreate(LPCREATESTRUCT lpCreateStruct)
{
...etc..

CString strClass = AfxRegisterWndClass(CS_VREDRAW|CS_HREDRAW,::LoadCursor(NULL, IDC_ARROW),(HBRUSH)::GetStockObject(WHITE_BRUSH),::LoadIcon(NULL,IDI_APPLICATION));

CRuntimeClass * pRuntimeClass = RUNTIME_CLASS(CMyMiniFrame);
MyMiniFrame = (CMyMiniFrame*)pRuntimeClass->CreateObject();
MyMiniFrame->Create(strClass,_T("My MiniFrame Window"), MFS_MOVEFRAME, CRect(50,50,200,130));
}

Since you're creating the class yourself, you will need to override the WM_PAINT and WM_ERASEBKGND messages in your CMyMiniFrame class. Then you can draw the bitmap in any fashion you like.

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.
