Create a class from CBitmap

I want to create a class called CMyBitmap which is derived from CBitmap, but when I select insert new class, there isn't such a base class for me to select in the combo box. How can I write the code? Actually what I want to do is to create a CMyBitmap class with some function like loadresource, getheight,getwidth and drawbmp in the class so that I can design the background of my dialog in an SDI application, but I face many problems in doing so. Hope someone can tell me how to write the code? (or is there an active x control for doing so?I try the picture box in the control editor but the picture will always cover my buttons). Need help urgently for my project. thanx in advance

create your own .cpp/.h files

in .h file
class CMyBitmap : public CBitmap
{
public:
CMyBitmap();
virtual ~CMyBitmap() {};
...override the functionality you want here
}

and in .cpp file
CMyBitmap(...) : CBitmap(...)
{
}
