Hi,

I'm creating an application with VC++ (without MFC).
I'm using CreateBitmap(x,y,1,8,ptr) to create a bitmap
that is latter copied to the clipboard.
For some reason I don't get the original B&W picture but
the same picture with undefined colors.

Any suggestions?

Many thanks.

That is not a B&W bitmap, that is a 256 color bitmap.  In the 4th parameter you specify 8 bits per pixel, that is for 256 colors.  Specify i bit per pixel and you iwll have a monchrome bitmap.

Let me know if you have questions.
