I would like to draw my own background in a mdi application. I have read several answers to this question and this is what I believe I have to do:

1. create the main frame window
2. create the mdi client window, but this have to be subclassed in order to handle the WM_ERASEBKGND message and to draw my own background.

well, the problem is how do I "subclass" the mdi client window? I have seen this done using C++ and MFC but I'm wondering how this can be acomplished in C.

I haven't been able to compile the C++ code and run it in a debugger and see how to do it.
