Hi,

anyone here who can give me a short sample of how to paint a rectangle, filled with grey, and a 1 pixel black border on a dialog with GDI+?  I use VS 2005 and try it on a dialogbased app.

Thanks,

Ocrana

it has to be with GDI+?
the simplest way to paint a rectangle in a dialog is to put an empty static (aka "label") at design time.

void CAboutDlg::OnPaint()
{
      CPaintDC dc(this); // device context for painting
      
      dc.SelectObject( ::GetStockObject( BLACK_PEN ));
      dc.SelectObject( ::GetStockObject( GRAY_BRUSH ));
      
      dc.Rectangle( 10, 10, 50, 20 );
