When i write (all variables are corectly defined) :

hBitmap = SelectObject(hMemDC, hOldBitmap);

and then compile, an error reported:
error C2440: '=' : cannot convert from 'void *' to 'struct HBITMAP__ *'
        Conversion from 'void*' to pointer to non-'void' requires an explicit cast

Whats problem?

Thanks.

1 point?   50 is considered easy...

hBitmap = (HBITMAP) SelectObject(hMemDC, hOldBitmap);

You should have about 150 points left.  That is enough to ask several reasinably "priced" questions.
