I am not sure if this is what you are talking about but I have a routine in my code that reads a bitmap and then cuts it up into the desired squares getting bitmap handles for each (this is after I've called LoadImage for the DIB)

void cMainSkin::LoadPartialBitmap(void)
      // Function to get a handle for each button bmp

      HDC hdcMain, hdcMem, hdcMem2;
      // Get main window DC and create a memory DC
      hdcMain = GetDC(hwndMain);
      hdcMem  = CreateCompatibleDC(hdcMain);
      hdcMem2 = CreateCompatibleDC(hdcMain);

      // Run a loop seven times for each button
      for (int i = 0; i < 7; i++)
            // Create a compatible bitmap
            hButtonPartialBitmap[i] = CreateCompatibleBitmap(hdcMain, iButtonWidth[i][0],

            // Select the bitmap into the second memory DC
            SelectObject(hdcMem2, hButtonPartialBitmap[i]);

            // Select the button bitmap into the first memory DC
            SelectObject(hdcMem, hButtonBitmap);

            // Copy the desired part of the bitmap into the second memory DC
            BitBlt(hdcMem2, 0, 0, iButtonWidth[i][0], iButtonHeight[i][0],
                     hdcMem, iButtonSourceX[i][0], iButtonSourceY[i][0],

      // Release DC
      ReleaseDC(hwndMain, hdcMain);

      // Delete memory DC
