Panoramic Bitmap

I have a bitmap that is a panarama of an area.  I would like to display part of the picture in a dialog box (not as the background) and allow the user to scroll left and right to view the different perspectives of the panorama.

I would also like to allow the user to change panarama bitmaps.

Is this possiable?

Thanks.
Brandy.

the easiest way is to override your OnPaint handler of your dialog - this will provide you with a DC you can use.

I am not familiar with the DIBSectionLite clas from code guru so the following code is if you are using a CBitmap (m_bmpBackground)
the following code will insert a previuosly loaded bitmap at 0,0 of your dialog. you will need to adjust the settings to BitBlt to set the location and

void CYourDialog::OnPaint()
{

      CPaintDC dc(this); // device context for painting
      BITMAP bmInfo;

      m_bmpBackground.GetObject(sizeof(BITMAP),&bmInfo);

      CRect BitmapRect(0,0,bmInfo.bmWidth,bmInfo.bmHeight);

      CBitmap *pOldBmp;

      CDC dcTemp;

      dcTemp.CreateCompatibleDC(pDC);

      pOldBmp = dcTemp.SelectObject(&m_bmpBackground);

      pDC->BitBlt(0,0,BitmapRect.Width(),BitmapRect.Height(),
                              &dcTemp,0,0,SRCCOPY);

      dcTemp.SelectObject(pOldBmp);
      // Do not call CDialog::OnPaint() for painting messages
}

yes

BitBlt your bitmap twice into its own DC

ie if bitmap is 'ABC' (imagine this is the picture) then you would have 'ABCABC'

then depending on your view position you can then BitBlt onto your ScreenDC (the one that the user sees)

pos1 'ABC'
pos2 'BCA'
pos3 'CAB'
pos4==pos1 = 'ABC'

okay I know it is a bit of a simple example but I hope you get the idea

I'm very new to anything concerning images.  I need an example of how to use BitBlt to insert a picture in a dialog box.

I have the bitmaps loaded into a resource only dll. Currently I have a m_Bitmap image on the dialog that I just setbitmap on.

I also have a DIBSectionLite class that I downloaded from codeguru.  The problem is that I don't know what the pDC should be for the dialog box.... and I'm not at all familar with CDC's.

Thanks.
