I want to display a windows metafile with a Static control.
I set the style of the control to Enhanced Metafile and I
set the handle to the metafile by the following code
      CMetaFileDC MetaDC;
      HDC hdc = ::GetDC(0);
      CRect rect(0,0,100,100);
      HDC hMetaDC = CreateEnhMetaFile(hdc,"d:\\test1.emf",&rect,NULL);
      ::ReleaseDC(0,hdc);
      HENHMETAFILE hMeta = CloseEnhMetaFile(hMetaDC);
      m_chart_layout.SetEnhMetaFile(hMeta);
But the control doesn't display the metafile!

Is there any example available?

1. Create a member variable for the CStatic control. Lets call it m_wndMeta;

2. In OnInitDialog get a handle of the EMF file on disk and associate it with the static control.

HENHMETAFILE h = GetEnhMetaFile( "c:\\temp\\test.emf" );
m_wndMeta.SetEnhMetaFile(h);
