Create one memory dc:

CDC * pDC =  new CDC;

following  function will create memorydc
virtual BOOL screendc::CreateCompatibleDC(  pDC );
by default it contains b/w bitmap. to remove that select your bitmap in the memorydc using selectobject function call.
see MFC help on CreateCompatibleDC(  pDC )
then call screendc.BitBlt( .., memorydc,.. );

can you please explain in more detail what to do after creating a pointer to CDC.
can you give an example by using a bitmap name called"test.bmp".
in your example can you show how to display this bitmap in a console, or on the whole moniter or screen.
please respond asap.
please give the whole example, so i could understand, not just a portion of it.
