define a timer
#define IDC_TIMER   1000

define a message map
afx_msg void OnTimer(bla bla bla)

then make your function in OnTimer

In your main application use SetTimer(blablabla) <--- to set how long you want to wait before loading the next function.

Hi b_harpal,

Say u have a dialog based application,
In the dialog .cpp class, do the following

************************************
 Use the "SetTimer(1, 500, NULL)"
function in the OnInitDialog() function of the dialog.
************************************
*In the OnPaint()function, under the else part of IsIconic()loop, add the following code
HDC hMemDC = ::CreateCompatibleDC(NULL);
      SelectObject(hMemDC, hbitmap);

::StretchBlt(dc.m_hDC, 50, 50, width,  hieght, hMemDC, width1, hieght1, 250,250, SRCCOPY);
//width,hieght,width1,hieght1
//are integers which determines the  
// size of the bitmap shown.
::DeleteDC(hMemDC);
::DeleteObject(hbitmap);


**************************************

In the OnTimer() function, use the following
static int i =1;
if(i == 1)
{
   hbitmap = ::LoadBitmap     (::AfxGetInstanceHandle(),MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDB_BITMAP1));
}
else if(i == 2)
 {
     hbitmap = ::LoadBitmap(::AfxGetInstanceHandle(),MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDB_BITMAP2));
}      
else if(i == 3)
{
      hbitmap = ::LoadBitmap(::AfxGetInstanceHandle(),MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDB_BITMAP3));
}
else if(i == 4)
{
      hbitmap = ::LoadBitmap(::AfxGetInstanceHandle(),MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDB_BITMAP4));
}
else if(i == 5)
{
      hbitmap = ::LoadBitmap(::AfxGetInstanceHandle(),MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDB_BITMAP5));
            i = 1;
}

i++;
this->InvalidateRect(NULL);
*************************************
hbitmap is of type HBITMAP which should be declared as a class variable.
I have done it for 5 bitmaps with resource name ID_BITMAP1...... U can extend it to 10 bitmaps in the OnTimer function.

hope this will answer your question.

Cheers

hi Krisp,

  thanks for your answer.But somehow iam still not able to implement it fully.It's giving problems in the OnPaint() function.It would be kind of u if u can give the full code so that i can cross-check it & solve my problem. Your answer helped me solve 95% of my problem..

Why don't you try the following code to draw the bitmap. Hope it will help :
width = the width of your screen in pixels
height = the height of your screen in pixels

      CBitmap cbmp;
      cbmp.LoadBitmap(IDB_BITMAP);
      HBITMAP Bmp;
      Bmp=(HBITMAP)cbmp;
      
      BITMAP bm;
      GetObject(Bmp, sizeof(bm), &bm);
      CPaintDC dc(this);
      HDC memdc = CreateCompatibleDC(NULL);
      HBITMAP h = (HBITMAP)SelectObject(memdc, Bmp);
      StrectchBlt(dc,0,0,bm.bmWidth,bm.bmHeight,memdc,0,0,width,height,SRCCOPY);  
      SelectObject(memdc, h);

I don't have any intention to cross krips, just trying to help, krips I hope you don't mind.

Hi b_harpal,

In the OnPaint() function, I used the following


CPaintDC dc(this);
int width = 150;
int hieght = 150;
int width1 = 0;
int hieght1 = 0;
HDC hMemDC = ::CreateCompatibleDC(NULL);
      SelectObject(hMemDC, hbitmap);
::StretchBlt(dc.m_hDC, 0, 0, width, hieght, hMemDC, width1, hieght1, 250,250, SRCCOPY);
::DeleteDC(hMemDC);
::DeleteObject(hbitmap);

If u want to increase the size, increase the values of width and hieght.

If u still have any problems,please be specific in ur problem(what error u r gettin?)and please do send queries if u have.

cheers.
