I'll give some more info..  Basically I have a DC where I'm doing some Drawing.  I want to get the Bitmap.  Easy enough.  But then I want to get a HICON.  Handle to the Icon Data.  
There has to be an easy way of doing this...  With the HICON, i can use to do what ever I want, like saving to an ICO file..for example, of drawing to the SysTray..etc  etc  etc

Declare a CImageList

use Create member to add create the image list empty

use Add member to add CBitmap to the image list

use ExtractIcon member to obtain an image of the n'th item in the image list


BTW
1. You can get the size req'd for an icon using ::GetSystemMetrics( SM_CXICON or SM_CYICON)

2. If the original bitmap is the wrong size, create a 2 nd memory bitmap with is the correct size and StretchBlt from the first to the second, and Add the 2nd memory bitmap to the image list
