Thanks VinExpert, however, I do not really understand what is stated at the links. Could anyone write down the exact code and where to place them?

From MS.
class CBMTest1Dlg : public CDialog
{
protected:
      CBitmapButton button1, button2;
public:
      //{{AFX_DATA(CBMTest1Dlg)
            enum { IDD = IDM_TEST_BITMAP_BUTTON1 };
      //}}AFX_DATA
      CBMTest1Dlg();

      BOOL OnInitDialog();
      //{{AFX_MSG(CBMTest1Dlg)
      //}}AFX_MSG
      DECLARE_MESSAGE_MAP()
};

BEGIN_MESSAGE_MAP(CBMTest1Dlg, CDialog)
      //{{AFX_MSG_MAP(CBMTest1Dlg)
      //}}AFX_MSG_MAP
END_MESSAGE_MAP()


CBMTest1Dlg::CBMTest1Dlg()
      : CDialog(CBMTest1Dlg::IDD)
{
      // NOTE: The obsolete MFC V1 CBitmapButton constructor with 3 arguments is
      //  replaced by a call to LoadBitmaps.
      if (!button1.LoadBitmaps(_T("Image1Up"), _T("Image1Down"), _T("Image1Focus")) ||
            !button2.LoadBitmaps(_T("Image2Up"), _T("Image2Down"), _T("Image2Focus")))
      {
            TRACE0("Failed to load bitmaps for buttons\n");
            AfxThrowResourceException();
      }
}

BOOL CBMTest1Dlg::OnInitDialog()
{
      // each dialog control has special bitmaps
      VERIFY(button1.SubclassDlgItem(IDOK, this));
      button1.SizeToContent();
      VERIFY(button2.SubclassDlgItem(IDCANCEL, this));
      button2.SizeToContent();

      return TRUE;
}

or you can use a regular button and set it's bitmap property and do something like this:

HANDLE hButton   = NULL;
CButton* pButton = NULL;

pButton = (CButton*)GetDlgItem(IDC_YOUR_BUTTON);

hButton = LoadImage(AfxGetInstanceHandle(), MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDB_YOUR_IMAGE), IMAGE_BITMAP, nDesiredWidth, nDesiredHeight, LR_DEFAULTCOLOR);

pButton->SendMessage(BM_SETIMAGE, IMAGE_BITMAP, MAKELPARAM(hButton, 0));

Wyn, I don't really understand how to use your code. But thanks anyway. :)

captainkirk, your code works but can you explain what each step is doing? Thanks a lot.

1) the GetDlgItem() call returns a pointer to the CWnd object corresponding to your button - you pass in the control ID for your button and you get back the pointer, which you then cast to a CButton pointer.

2)LoadImage() just gets the bitmap or icon for you and returns a handle to it. The MAKEINTRESOURCE macro converts your integer bitmap ID to a resource type compatible with Win32 resource-management functions. You pass in the desired width and height of your image in pixels as well.

3) The SendMessage() call tells the button that it needs to draw the bitmap and supplies the handle to the bitmap you just loaded.

hope that helps...
