Drawing a Bitmap-Ressource into MainWindow

I have a Bitmap ressource... and I'm looking for a way to use it as the background for the main window, which should be scaled to the bitmap's size...

Most likely a silly question, but I'm working on the Mac primarily which has quite different ways to do suh stuff.

Add bitmap to Visual C as a resource.  It will be called something like IDB_BITMAP1 in the resource tab in Dev Studio

Override the OnDraw function, and add code inside:


// prepare to draw
HBITMAP hBitmap = ::LoadBitmap( AfxGetInstanceHandle(), IDB_BITMAP1 ) ;
HDC hDC = ::CreateCompatibleDC( pDC->m_hDC ) ;
::SelectObject( hDC, hBitmap ) ;

// get bitmap size
GetObject( hBitmap, sizeof bm, &bm ) ;

// get screen size
CRect rect ;
GetClientRect( &rect ) ;

// draw bitmap with scaling
StretchBlt( pdc->m_hDC, rect.left, rect.top, rect.right-rect.left, rect.bottom-rect.top, hDC, 0, 0, bm.bmWidth, bm.bmHeight, SRCCOPY ) ;

// clean up
DeleteDC( hDC ) ;
DeleteObject( hBitmap ) ;

This solves my problem for the moment... the only remaining thing  I would like to know is how to adapt the Window to the Bitmap size instead of the other way 'raound?

BTW: I'm not working with Visual Studio, but with CodeWarrior
;-)

Something like this:

// get bitmap size
BITMAP bm ;
HBITMAP hBitmap = ::LoadBitmap( AfxGetInstanceHandle(), IDB_BITMAP1 ) ;
GetObject( hBitmap, sizeof bm, &bm ) ;
DeleteObject( hBitmap ) ;
// Calculate required size
CRect rect ;
rect.left = 0 ;
rect.top = 0 ;
rect.right = bm.bmWidth ;
rect.bottom = bm.bmHeight ;
AdjustWindowRect( &rect, style, bMenu ) ;

set style to the window style of the required window to size.  if an SDI app you can use
DWORD style = (DWORD)::GetWindowLong( AfxGetMainWnd()->m_hWnd, GWL_STYLE ) ;

set bMenu to TRUE or FALSE depending on if the window has a menu or not

Then size the window, e.g. for SDI app

AfxGetMainWnd()->MoveWindow( &rect ) ;

For an MDI app - you need to size the view (class deriving from CView) instead of the frame.  Replace references to AfxGetMainWnd() with a pointer to the view, or remove if doing it inside the view class.
