Convert Icon to bitmap

Hi,

I am looking for a way to load an Icon from an ICO file or from an icon library (.dll or .icl), and then convert the HICON handle to a valid HBITMAP.

I know how to load an .ICO file, but don't know how to load one from an library (BTW, how do you get the icon library dialog, the one that allows you to pick one from the library?).

How to display the Icon pick dialog box ?
How to load an certin icon from a library ?
How to covert an HICON to HBITMAP and allow bitmap functions to work on it (while preserving the icon 32-bit data) ?


thanks for your help!
