I have created my own dialog that will serve as a custom message box. But I need to steal the exclamation image from the standard message box. I took a screen shot, pasted into paint, and make a .bmp file that contains only the triangular exclamation point image (and the white box around it). The problem is this white box. I need to put this bitmap on my dialog, on a button, a picture box, or a CStatic. I don't really care which control, to be honest. But I can't seem to get rid of that white box around the bitmap. Any thoughts?
