I have 2 pictures box.  One already got a bitmap loaded, and i would like to try to do a copy with BitBlt.  I know that there's probably already a function to do that, but i'm trying to test the performance of a bitblt in c# thru pinvoke vs c++.

How do i get the HDC of the picture boxes?

thanks

You need to use GetDC API to get the picturebox hDC:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd144871(v=vs.85).aspx

1. Add the line "using System.Runtime.InteropServices;" above the namespace
2. Add the following line to your form class:
    [DllImport("user32.dll")]
    public static extern IntPtr GetDC(IntPtr hWnd);

3. Use the following code to get the picturebox hDC
IntPtr hDC = GetDC(pictureBox1.Handle);

Open in new window

...be sure to use ReleaseDC() to prevent GDI leaks.
