Printing bmp problem

I have a simple code used in printing bmp in my app.:
OnPrint(CDC* pDC, CPrintInfo* pInfo)
{
      CBitmap bitmap;
      CDC memdc;
      bitmap.LoadBitmap("barcd.bmp");
      memdc.CreateCompatibleDC(pDC);
      pDC->BitBlt(0, 0, 100, 100, &memdc, 0, 0, SRCCOPY);
}
This code won't print the bmp "barcd.bmp". pls. help me work out this proble....or can you modify this simple code to work.... thanks

Let us say you are going to load the bitmap file and not the resource.
Add this code
              HBITMAP m_hBitmap;
      m_hBitmap=(HBITMAP)::LoadImage(
            NULL,"barcd.bmp",IMAGE_BITMAP,
            0,0,LR_LOADFROMFILE|LR_DEFAULTSIZE);
      CBitmap *mbmp=CBitmap::FromHandle(m_hBitmap);
              CDC *memDC=new CDC;
      memDC->CreateCompatibleDC(pDC);
      memDC->SelectObject(mbmp);
              pDC->BitBlt(10,10,500,500,memDC,0,0,SRCCOPY);
              delete memDC;

You have to add:
Memdc.SelectObject(&bitmap);

before the BitBlt.

Dont you need a memdc.SelectObject( bitmap ) at one point ??

You're proposed code seems as follows:
void OnPrint(CDC* pDC, CPrintInfo* pInfo)
{
      CBitmap (bitmap);
      CDC memdc;
      bitmap.LoadBitmap("barcd.bmp");
      memdc.CreateCompatibleDC(pDC);
      memdc.SelectObject(&bitmap);
      pDC->BitBlt(0, 0,100,100, &memdc, 0, 0, SRCCOPY);
}

but i'm afraid, the same problem occured......
the barcd.bmp exists in the proj directory to be sure...............

well I would atleast change

pDC->BitBlt( 0, 0, 100, 100, &memdc, 0, 0, SRCCOPY );

to

pDC->BitBlt( 0, 0, bitmap.Width(), bitmap.Height(), &memdc, 0, 0, SRCCOPY );

ALSO,

The "barcd.bmp" must be a RESOURCE withing the EXECUTABLE file, not a separate file within the (current) working directory! Thus, you will need to add the bitmap to the project as a RESOURCE, name it (you could keep 'barcd.bmp') and then call your code. If I am understanding your problem correctly, this should work!
