How to set caption for bitmap button in mfc

Last Modified: 2013-11-20
CButton and CBitmapButton class provide function for loading a bitmap on button. But my problem is once you load the bitmap button caption will disappear. I tried to put the caption back by setwindowtext. It is not working. Of course it will work if we make the button an owner button. What i am looking for is a mfc provided function or any property to show the caption and image at the same time.
