What is the meaning of the scope operator before LoadBitmap in the code below...
m_button is a CButton object assigned to an MFC dialog button. The goal here is to put the IDB_GREEN bitmap onto the button, and this code does do that, but the :: is not clear. I understand that normally you would use :: if you wanted to specify the class, on the left side, that the method, on the right side, is to come from, but the left side of this :: is not a class, it's a method of the CButton class. Curiously, the code works fine without the :: and I only put it in because the sample code I got this from had it.
Thanks for any thoughts,
