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

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.

More detailed explaination could be found in http://devcentral.iftech.com/Learning/tutorials/mfc-win32/vc6mfc/5.asp

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..
waiting for reply..

cheers..

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.
