1) Add static control with SS_BITMAP style to the FormView dialog template
2) Load required bitmat using LoadImage API with LR_LOADFROMFILE flag. It returns HBITMAP handle.
3) Set this handle to static control using CStatic::SetBitmap function.

Hi AlexFM
here i did the work...I have a my class name CMyPicture who set the coordinates of bitmap.objvalue is the value comming from table whose required bitmap has to be loaded.but on line  showing ***,a debug eror comes out.
what should i do for it.
here is code:
protected:
           CMyPicture m_ctrlBmpDig;
public:
         CBitmap* m_pBmp1;
               CString m_strBmpFileOb;

void CPPCView::OnLoadIndexBitmap(CString objvalue)
{


      m_strBmpFileOb = "C:\\Object\\";
      m_strBmpFileOb += objvalue;
      m_strBmpFileOb += ".bmp";

      if(!m_strBmpFileOb.IsEmpty())
      {
      

            m_pBmp1 = new CBitmap();      
            HBITMAP hBitmap = (HBITMAP)LoadImage(AfxGetApp()->m_hInstance,m_strBmpFileOb,IMAGE_BITMAP,0,0,LR_DEFAULTSIZE|LR_LOADFROMFILE);

            if(hBitmap)
      m_pBmp1->Attach(hBitmap);
               
**       m_ctrlBmpDig.SetBitmap(m_pBmp1);
                                                m_ctrlBmpDig.SetWindowPos(NULL,ptB.x,ptB.y,10,10,SWP_SHOWWINDOW);
