Hi koger,

To fully answer your question fully :

 add in the public section of your form :
  bmpBackground : TBitmap;

 add in the formcreate event following code :
  bmpBackground := TBitmap.Create;
  bmpBackground.LoadFromFile( 'c:\windows\setup.bmp' );

 add code in the onpaint event :
  Canvas.Draw( 0, 0, bmpBackground );

 offcourse we've to free the memmory of our bitmap, so add following code in the formdestroy event :
  bmpBackground.Free;

Zif
