MDI Background image

Hi,

I have a standard MDI application. Can someone tell me how to draw a bitmap in the client area of the main frame? (A complete working example would be great).

Thanks

Hi Mahesh,

Alright I gave it a try. The sample uses:

    SetWindowLong(hMain, GWL_WNDPROC, (long)pfnNewWndProc);

to override the size and erase bg messages in a new message loop function. Is it possible to accomplish the same thing with the standard MFC message mappings?

If not, is it possible to selectively use the new message handler at runtime?

    if (bSomething) {
        SetWindowLong(hMain, GWL_WNDPROC, (long)pfnNewWndProc);
    }
    else {
        SetWindowLong(hMain, GWL_WNDPROC, (long)pfnOriginalWndProc);
    }

Thanks
