Device Independent Bitmaps

jvitale asked
Last Modified: 2010-04-15
Basically I need someone to show me exactly how to create a Device Independent Bitmap from absolutely nothing. I need to use a DIB for a memory bitmap for rendering opengl images to.

I need to create a memory DC and a memory DIBitmap and select the DIB into the DC. I've gotten close with the CreateDIBSection but I can't figure out the appropriate way to fill in the BITMAP Headers and INFO structure.

If anyone can help, please let me know and supply the code.
