StretchBlt with GetClientRect.

Hi,
   I have an image viewer that does zooming and scroll. this image viewer is built with the document view architecture.

Currently, my program does this,      

pDC->StretchBlt(0, 0, srcX * zoomfactor, srcY * zoomfactor, &bmDC, 0, 0, srcX, srcY, SRCCOPY);

This is very inefficient when the zoomfactor is very huge, say 10. I tried to use GetClientRect to restrict the destination DC's area when doing StretchBlt but it does not scroll properly after that.

Anybody knows what is the problem? Or can show me the proper way to do this?

Thanks.

Use GetScrollPosition to get current scroll position in the view. Having this point, you can draw only appropriate rectangle which should be shown on the screen.

Something like this:

pDC->StretchBlt(
    0,
    0,
    srcX * zoomfactor,
    srcY * zoomfactor,
    &bmDC,
    0,
    0,
    srcX,
    srcY,
    SRCCOPY);

replace with (pseudo-code):

pDC->StretchBlt(
    <current X scroll position>,
    <current Y scroll position>,
    <client width>,
    <client height>,
    &bmDC,
    <left of source rectangle which should be drawn>,
    <top of source rectangle which should be drawn>,
    srcX/zoomCoefficient,
    srcY/zoomCoefficient,
    SRCCOPY);

You need some beginner math stuff to accomplish this. The idea is to draw minimum, taking into account current scroll position.

Another way is creating of memory DC with full size (bitmap size * zoom coefficient) and keep image in it. In OnDraw function use BitBlt instead of StretchBlt.

I tried the first method before i posted this question but it didn't seem to work.
BTW, my CView is actually CScrollView. It handles the scrolling and refreshing automatically. Will this have any adverse effect?
