I want to add a bitmap background to my MDI main window
how do I go about this (code example). I have read that EraseBkgnd and OnPaint need to be user processed.

Create new CWnd base class CBackGround

handle WM_ERASEBKGND as below in your new class.

BOOL CBackGround::OnEraseBkgnd(CDC* pDC)
{
      BOOL result;
      result = CWnd::OnEraseBkgnd(pDC);
      BITMAP BM;
      CBitmap m_Bitmap;
      CDC m_DC;
      RECT ici;
      GetClientRect(&ici);
      m_Bitmap.LoadBitmap(IDB_BITMAP_PLANT);
      m_DC.CreateCompatibleDC(pDC);
      m_DC.SelectObject(&m_Bitmap);
      m_Bitmap.GetObject(sizeof(BM), &BM);
      if(pDC->StretchBlt(0,0,
        (ici.right - ici.left),(ici.bottom - ici.top),
        &m_DC, 0, 0, BM.bmWidth, BM.bmHeight, SRCCOPY) == 0)
      {
            AfxMessageBox("failed to create bitmap");
      }
      return result;
}

in your mainframe.h file include the header for the new class
and create a protected member

say

CBackGround m_background;

and
Subclass this client window in your mainframe's OnCreate function as

m_background.SubclassWindow(m_hWndMDIClient);
