Get the dc (screen or window of form)

Create a compatible dc. Memdc.

Get the HBITMAP hbmp (above code LoadImage)

Select the hbmp into the Memdc.

Get the size of the bitmap (GetObject)

BitBlt from Memdc to the screen.

Clean up memory

I had tried this one according to u..Here is what i did...
void CMyView::OnLoadBitmap(CString objvalue,POINT pt)
{
CString m_strBmpFileOb=objvalue;//containing name of    bitmap

CPaintDC dc(this);
   CDC *MemDC;

 MemDC->CreateCompatibleDC (NULL);
  HBITMAP hBmp = (HBITMAP)::LoadImage(NULL, _T(m_strBmpFileOb), IMAGE_BITMAP, 0, 0, LR_LOADFROMFILE);

      MemDC->SelectObject (&hBmp);
GetObject(hBmp,sizeof(m_strBmpFileOb),NULL);
      
MemDC->BitBlt (ptB.x,ptB.y,20,20,&dc,700,600,SRCCOPY);
}
But on CreateCompatibleDC,a debug error comes out...Similarly if i // that line then error goes to next line.
what i had missed.?
