Hi,

I would like to set many pictures to control boxes using a loop, but don't know how to do this.

I want to set m_Pic1 - mPic12 and pic1 - pic12, but I don't know the function to evaluate this.

for(int i; i<12; i++){

// How do I set variables m_Pic1 and pic1 to increment?

m_Pic1.SetBitmap((HBITMAP)LoadImage(NULL,pic1(),IMAGE_BITMAP,0,0,LR_DEFAULTCOLOR|LR_DEFAULTSIZE|LR_LOADFROMFILE|LR_CREATEDIBSECTION));

}

Anyone help me on this?  Thanks in advance.

make an array of them, and loop through that.
alternately, make an array of pointers to all of them and loop through it instead; this will be easier in this situation I think...

Make these two #define statements at the begining of your program
#define m_Pic(x)     m_Pic##x
#define pic(x)          pic##x

then use it as follows:
for(int i = 1; i<13; i++){
m_Pic(i).SetBitmap((HBITMAP)LoadImage(NULL,pic(i), IMAGE_BITMAP, 0, 0, LR_DEFAULTCOLOR|LR_DEFAULTSIZE|LR_LOADFROMFILE|LR_CREATEDIBSECTION));
}
