Pictures in ActiveX controls

I have added a picture property to the control which is all working correctly.  However I would like to add an Stretch property.  I am not sure how to access the pictures Width and Height properties to allow the SetControlSize function to be called.

The m_pPict data member of CPictureHolder Class is a pointer to the CPictureHolder object's IPicture interface. IPicutre has the methods IPicture::get_Width and get_Height.

Use CDC::HIMETRICtoLP, CDC::HIMETRICtoDP to convert it. And, you may extract the conversion code from the ATL function AtlHiMetricToPixel (atlctl.h, atlctl.cpp).

#define HIMETRIC_PER_INCH   2540
#define MAP_PIX_TO_LOGHIM(x,ppli)   ( (HIMETRIC_PER_INCH*(x) + ((ppli)>>1)) / (ppli) )
#define MAP_LOGHIM_TO_PIX(x,ppli)   ( ((ppli)*(x) + HIMETRIC_PER_INCH/2) / HIMETRIC_PER_INCH )

ATLAPI_(void) AtlHiMetricToPixel(const SIZEL * lpSizeInHiMetric, LPSIZEL lpSizeInPix)
{
      int nPixelsPerInchX;    // Pixels per logical inch along width
      int nPixelsPerInchY;    // Pixels per logical inch along height

      HDC hDCScreen = GetDC(NULL);
      _ASSERTE(hDCScreen != NULL);
      nPixelsPerInchX = GetDeviceCaps(hDCScreen, LOGPIXELSX);
      nPixelsPerInchY = GetDeviceCaps(hDCScreen, LOGPIXELSY);
      ReleaseDC(NULL, hDCScreen);

      lpSizeInPix->cx = MAP_LOGHIM_TO_PIX(lpSizeInHiMetric->cx, nPixelsPerInchX);
      lpSizeInPix->cy = MAP_LOGHIM_TO_PIX(lpSizeInHiMetric->cy, nPixelsPerInchY);
}
