Urgent CTabCtrl & CImageList Problem

i am tring to change the tab cntrol to work with CImageList
and it is not working . This is my OnInitDialog() .
What is the problem with it ?? ( IDB_BACK,IDB_FORE are two
bitmaps )


BOOL CMfcDlg::OnInitDialog()
{
      CDialog::OnInitDialog();

      SetIcon(m_hIcon, TRUE);
      SetIcon(m_hIcon, FALSE);
      if (!m_ImageList.Create( 37,20,FALSE,0,2) == true )
            AfxMessageBox("Not O.K");
      if (!m_Fore.LoadBitmap(IDB_FORE))
            AfxMessageBox("Not O.K");
      if (!m_Back.LoadBitmap(IDB_BACK))
            AfxMessageBox("Not O.K");
      int l;
      if ( l = m_ImageList.Add(&m_Fore,WHITE) == -1 )
                  AfxMessageBox("Not O.K");      
      if ( l = m_ImageList.Add(&m_Back,NAVIG_BTN_CLR) == -1 )
                  AfxMessageBox("Not O.K");
      l = m_ImageList.GetImageCount();
      m_TabCtrl.SetImageList(&m_ImageList);
      IMAGEINFO pImageInfo;
      if (m_ImageList.GetImageInfo( 0,&pImageInfo ) == 0)
                  AfxMessageBox("Not O.K");
      

      TC_ITEM local;
      local.mask = TCIF_IMAGE;        
      local.iImage = 0;        
      if (m_TabCtrl.InsertItem(1,&local) == -1 )
            AfxMessageBox("Not O.K");
      TC_ITEM local2;
      local2.mask = TCIF_IMAGE;        
      local2.iImage = 1;        
      if ( m_TabCtrl.InsertItem(2,&local2) == -1 )
                  AfxMessageBox("Not O.K");
      TC_ITEM local3;
      local3.mask = TCIF_IMAGE  ;        
      local3.iImage = 1;        
      if ( m_TabCtrl.InsertItem(3,&local3) == -1 )
            AfxMessageBox("Not O.K");
      m_TabCtrl.SetCurSel(0);
      return TRUE;
}

This code is taken out of a working program.
is your tab control created? ( does he have a valide HWND )

( like, is there a spot in this code i've supplied that fails - does the code execute till it's last line or does it break on it's way? )

This simple code works:

CTabCtrl *pTab = GetTabControl();  // not relevant for you
if( pTab == NULL ) return bResult;
m_pImageList = new CImageList;
if( m_pImageList == NULL ) return bResult;
if( !m_pImageList->Create( 16, 16, TRUE, 2, 2 ) ) return bResult;
INT nImageIndex = m_pImageList->Add( pApp->LoadIcon(     IDI_CASSETTE )
    );
if( nImageIndex == -1 ) return bResult;
pTab->SetImageList( m_pImageList );
TC_ITEM tabCtrlItem;
tabCtrlItem.mask = TCIF_IMAGE;
tabCtrlItem.iImage = nImageIndex;
pTab->SetItem( 0, &tabCtrlItem );

with the default look.
