I have a CBitmap in a CView. When I try to print it, I only have a small black rectangle. When I used print preview it's ok but my CBitmap is too small. I know that I must convert it to a DIB but how can I transfert a CBitmap to a DIB and how can I make my DIB use the entire page?

Also extremely useful is StretchDIBits.  Once you have a DIB, stretch the bitmap to the page to get the printed size you want.
