Assertion Failure in OCX

I encounter an "Assertion Debug Failure" when deleting an ocx from a dialog box with "Afxwin1.inl" "Line : 558" error message. Can anyone tell me what has gone wrong?

Nobody can tell you what is wrong with so little information.
Hi KeithTeo,

After a look int afxwin1.inl(line 558) I at least can tell you the problem is that somehow a CDC::SelectObject(CBitmap*) is called against a CDC object with a m_hDC == NULL               :)

I would think a OnDestroy function is trying to select a previously 'unselected' bitmap into a dc without testing the return value from GetDC() or something else ...

hope that helps,
