VC++4.0: How to lay a .bmp over a button

Using VC++4.0, I have developed a remote control for a camera.
To move the pan/tilt, I use buttons like up/down/left etc.

Now I would like to replace the words "up", "down"...with arrows.
I tried to lay a selfmade .bmp over the button, but it didn't work.

Hope this is not a big problem...till now I used the default control elements from VC++ with individual caption.

Any help would be appreciated !

Use CBitmapButton class to set up to 4 bitmaps for each button for enable, disable focused and pushed state of the button. If you want to place only one bitmap on each button the simpliest way to do this is to use ordinary button and call CButton::SetBitmap.

Hi galkin,

hope you read this comment...

I need only one bitmap for the button.
So, this is what I changed in my C++ code:

BOOL CDiaKamera::Create()
{
      CButton* pButton;
      BOOL ret;
      
      ret = CDialog::Create(CDiaKamera::IDD);
      pButton = (CButton*) GetDlgItem(IDC_Home);
      pButton->SetBitmap((HBITMAP) GetDlgItem(IDB_HOME));
      return ret;
}

- IDC_Home is my button ID
- IDB_HOME is my bitmap I want to place over this button

...nothing happens...

Do I have to "redraw" the dialog to update the buttons ?

what's wrong here ?
