I can't figure out what's wrong with this code:

void VIMaskedBitmap::TransparentStretchBlt( CDC* pDestDC,
                                                      MOSINT32 nDestX,
                                                      MOSINT32 nDestY,
                                                      MOSINT32 nDestWidth,
                                                      MOSINT32 nDestHeight,
                                                      CDC* pSrcDC,
                                                      MOSINT32 nSrcX,
                                                      MOSINT32 nSrcY,
                                                      MOSINT32 nSrcWidth,
                                                      MOSINT32 nSrcHeight,
                                                      COLORREF cr )
{
     CSize szSrc( nSrcWidth, nSrcHeight );
     CSize szDest( nDestWidth, nDestHeight );

    CPoint ptSrc( nSrcX, nSrcY);
    CPoint ptDest( nDestX, nDestY);
   
     CDC dcAnd;
    CDC dcXor;

    dcAnd.CreateCompatibleDC( pDestDC );
    dcXor.CreateCompatibleDC( pDestDC );

     CBitmap bitmapAnd;
     CBitmap bitmapXor;
     bitmapAnd.CreateBitmap( szSrc.cx, szSrc.cy, 1, 1, NULL );
     bitmapXor.CreateCompatibleBitmap( pSrcDC, nSrcWidth, nSrcHeight );

    // Create an AND mask
    CBitmap* pOldBitmapAnd = dcAnd.SelectObject( &bitmapAnd );

    COLORREF crOld = pSrcDC->SetBkColor( cr );
    dcAnd.BitBlt( 0, 0, szSrc.cx, szSrc.cy, pSrcDC, ptSrc.x, ptSrc.y, SRCCOPY );
     pSrcDC->SetBkColor( crOld );

     // Create an XOR mask
    CBitmap* pOldBitmapXor = dcXor.SelectObject( &bitmapXor );

    dcXor.BitBlt( 0, 0, szSrc.cx, szSrc.cy, pSrcDC, ptSrc.x, ptSrc.y, SRCCOPY );

    dcXor.BitBlt( 0, 0, szSrc.cx, szSrc.cy, &dcAnd, NULL, NULL, 0x220326 );

     // Generate the final image by applying the AND and XOR masks
    pDestDC->StretchBlt( ptDest.x, ptDest.y, szDest.cx, szDest.cy,
                               &dcAnd,
                               ptSrc.x, ptSrc.y, szSrc.cx, szSrc.cy,
                               SRCAND );

    pDestDC->StretchBlt( ptDest.x, ptDest.y, szDest.cx, szDest.cy,
                               &dcXor,
                               ptSrc.x, ptSrc.y, szSrc.cx, szSrc.cy,
                               SRCINVERT );

    dcXor.SelectObject( pOldBitmapXor );
    dcAnd.SelectObject( pOldBitmapAnd );
}

Not very descriptive -- what kind of problem? Does your code raise an error? Is your result not as you'd expect it to be? If so, how does it appear?

See http://www.codeguru.com/bitmap/CISBitmap.shtml ("Transparent Bitmap - True Mask Method "), maybe this is of some help...

Hum, thanx, but why a "C"? If it doesn't work for you, don't accept it, and if it does, it was certainly worth more than a "C"...

Well I figured it out the problem before you answered so since you were probably the most usefull then I gave you the points... but not because you found the problem with the given code.  It was a lazy answer.

@ jkr:
I'd be pissed, too -- guess there will be no more helping dwinkler from me. A personal ban-list would be cool. The type of question should have given us enough hints, though. Just throwing code at people to go through and tell the 'author' what's wrong -- he wasn't even giving a description about what went wrong. Too bad, it's too late now :(

@ dwinkler:
What exactly is wrong with the link provided by jkr?

>> personal ban-list would be cool

Don't worry, I do have one :o)
But, it takes more to get on it than just grading a "C"...

Not looking to make enemies so calm down a bit.  The reality is that jkr got the points regardless.  That is a thanks for trying...  I have nothing else to say... fl0yd, next time you see a question from me just ignore it, if you feel that I've done something this bad to you...

You're just being selfish in the most explicit way. Your 'I paid for what I got'-mentality is manifestation enough. Just to enlighten you a bit: There could be someone stumbling across your question in the future. Based on your grade he/she might buy the answer or not -- a 'C' isn't really something I'd go for. To make it short: Give it as much credit as you think the information priveded is worth. A comment like "it was a lazy answer" pretty much disqualifies you from becoming a talented coder anyway.

Well, all this has a good side also - we found a serious EEBug :o)

I never received ANY notifications for dwinklers comments after my comment was accepted, but I did receive notifs for fl0yds comments... Report posted :o)

(dwinker: Just imagine you'd have to ask a followup, and I'd never have responded because of the lack of a notification - would have made me look pretty bad :o)

Glad I could help out :) As for the lack of notification from dwinkler I'd call it a feature rather than a bug ;)
