   Thanks for all the help so far... But I still have more Questions. I have got the code you gave me to work but it is not exactly what I wanted. I did not know there were so many uses for the bitBLT function. So I will tell you what I want to do and hopefully you will be able to help me. I want to make a game grid out of picture boxes. On this grid there will be pics of the game bord in bmp format. Then I want to put the player on the map on one of the picture boxes. I already see I will have to actuley use two grids: one for the map and one for where ever the player is going to be. At least I think this is how it should be done. The map will always be there. Just the plays pic will move around(change boxes). But I want to pic to look like it is on top of the map. I hope this helps you see what I want. And I hope it does not scare you off. This is my first time asking a question and I was not thinking when I asked it.   Thanks again

Why not use the imageList control? It can manage an array of regular pictures, and it manages transparency.

Check the following URL for a complete set of tutorials on BitBlt and a number of other sprite related routines (in fact it teaches you how you can make your own sprite engine):

http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Bay/9520/tutor.html

Just make sure you use the 32 bit function declares (they are included in a lot of the source, but are commented out).  The guy that runs the site has done a great job of setting this up.  There are a few errors here and there, but it's FREE.
