Using BitBlt() Function !!

Hello Experts !!

I developed an SDI application which displays a Bitmap !! I call UpdateAllViews(NULL) very frequently when a MOUSE_MOVE message is sent. The problem is that the bitmap flickers a lot. I wanna reduce or simple avoid flickering, which is why I'm using BitBlt() function. but still It seems to flicker.

This is the code I've written;

CPaintDC dc(this);
CDC memDC;
memDC.CreateCompatibleDC(&dc);

CBitmap bm;
bm.LoadBitmap(IDB_BITMAP1);

memDC.SelectObject(bm);
CRect rc;
GetClientRect(&rc);
OnDraw(&dc);
dc.BitBlt(0,0,rc.Width(), rc.Height(), &memDC,0,0,BLACKNESS);

Can somebody tell me why this does not work as expected.

Don't call UpdateAllViews into Mouse Move event, and also don't try to redraw all bitmap into Mouse move event.  

If you are doing editing into mouse move, then set the writting style to R2_NOT by calling funtion SetROP2.  

e.g if you are drawing a rectangle, then on each mouse move you erase the previous ractangle and create a new one.  
This way there will be no flicker at all.  

I think you got my point.
