Bitmap resize on same DC

I am a little be confused!

I have a custom control with a bitmap inside
I create the bitmap with this code
CClientDC dc(this) ;
if (m_dcGrid.GetSafeHdc() == NULL)
    m_dcGrid.CreateCompatibleDC(&dc) ;
m_nClientWidth,m_nClientHeight) ;
    m_pbitmapOldGrid = m_dcGrid.SelectObject(&m_bitmapGrid) ;

and in OnPaint i have:
CPaintDC dc(this) ;  // device context for painting
CDC memDC ;
CBitmap memBitmap ;
CBitmap* oldBitmap ; // bitmap originally found in CMemDC

memDC.CreateCompatibleDC(&dc) ;
memBitmap.CreateCompatibleBitmap(&dc, m_nClientWidth, m_nClientHeight)
oldBitmap = (CBitmap *)memDC.SelectObject(&memBitmap) ;

if (memDC.GetSafeHdc() != NULL)
memDC.BitBlt(0, 0, m_nClientWidth, m_nClientHeight,  &m_dcGrid, 0, 0,
dc.BitBlt(0, 0, m_nClientWidth, m_nClientHeight, &memDC, 0, 0, SRCCOPY)

memDC.SelectObject(oldBitmap) ;

Now, my goal is to change the bitmap size when the user click on a
How can i proceed?
I have tried with
MyObject->MoveWindow(0,0,300,200) but the result is that the object is
resize, but the bitmap remain of the same size.
Can someone help me?

Dont you need to stretch/compress it rather than move it? How about

I have tried it but with non success!
First i always do a MyObject->MoveWindow(0,0,300,200) to resize the
control where the bitmap is stored.
And then i call a function where:

   m_dcGrid.StretchBlt(0, 0, m_nClientWidth, m_nClientHeight,
&m_dcGrid, 0, 0, m_nOriginalWidth, m_nOriginalHeight,  SRCCOPY) ;

Where the "Original" are the for example 500 and 100 and the "Client"
(the new one) are 800, 200.
The OnPaint remain the same.

In this way the control is resized and i see the bitmap resized, but i
still see ONLY the original portion of the Bitmap.

I will try to explain
At start i have a bitmap that fit a control 500x100.
Then a call MoveWindow and the control resize to 800x200. Now i see
only the 500x100 portion of my bitmap, the rest is black.
If i call the StretchBlt i ALWAYS see 500x100 with rest of image black,
but in the rectangle (500x100) i can see that the bitmap has been
enlarged, but i only see a portion of that.

I hope this is clear. Unfortunately is difficult to explain it even in
my language and is more difficult in english!
Help is appreciate.

I am not sure if I understand it. Try calling StretchBlt without moving
the control. Just see if you can stretch it. Once you have that
working, move the control.

The StretchBlt return 1, so it seems it works, but on the window i
cannot see any changes

3/29/2006 3:39:08 PM
I have tried another way (but i don't know if is correct)
Create a second bitmap and assign it to the same CDC


    SelectObject(m_dcGrid, BitmapGrid2);

In this way the bitmap is all visible, but this is a new bitmap. I need
to copy the first one into these.
How can i do that?

Resizing bitmap without losing quality (or a method to redraw the bitmap)

how do i put a transparent bitmap, such as a sprite, on the screen If the bitmap has a palette then you can use LoadMappedBitmap to replace any palette colour with any colour of your choosing but loading the bitmap frequently to re-map would be painfully expensive and, besides it would only work for a single, solid background colour. While that works well for putting transparency on bitmaps for a dialog box I think you'll have to do the logic yourself for a transparent bitmap on a background with multiple colours. If you think about doing it is quite easy. Create a monochrome mask of ...

Converting a 24-bit bitmap (with 256 unique colors) to an 8-bit bitmap without changing the colors???
I carefully constructed a 24-bit bitmap to have exactly 256 unique colors. I converted this bitmap to use an optimized 8-bit palette retaining the exact same 256 colors using an image editor. I compared all of these images to the original using the BeyondCompare diff tool, they all has identical pixels. CImage image; image.Load("256colors.bmp"); // 24-bit image.Save("test.gif"); The colors now have been changed by several shades. To fix this I have to create my own color index table precisely defining the colors that I want to use, and then copy the ...

Resizing dialog and controls #2
Hi, I have a dialog with a list control in it. I need to make the dialog resizable along with its contents. Appreciate if anyone points me to any samples on this. TIA, SD No sample needed. Change dialog’s style to resizable (properties, styles, border). If you want to move/resize all controls you would have to think about algorithm specific to a dialog layout and for the best effect (no flickering) use BeginDeferWindowPos, DeferWindowPos and EndDeferWindowPos.

Bitmap Not Displayed
A bitmap that appears in the MFC dialog editor does not display when the application runs. The property settings and ID are the same in the VS 2003 version and the VS 6 version. The VS 6 version works fine. It appears the update from VC++ 6 to VC++ 2003 has changed the mapping to the runtime bitmap file, but why does the bitmap picture appear (as it should) in the dialog editor, but not in the running version? The bitmap is labeled as a "system" bitmap, but this is a custom developed bitmap (lots of colors). Any clues to why the bitmap will not display and how to fix it? ...

When I double-click on the object and try to widen the borders in Excel to show all of the spreadhsheet's width, then go back to Publisher, the width hasn't changed in Publisher.

Rotating bitmaps, flicker free painting, SetWorldTransform function?
can i use the SetWorldTransform function to rotate a bitmap for flicker free painting? i want to rotate a bitmap for "real time" painting. thx. Hi, yes, you can use SetWorldTransform (NB: supported only for NT family platforms!) to draw bitmap with rotation. Just don't forget to call SetGraphicsMode(hDC, GM_ADVANCED) before applying world transformations. But flicker-free drawing is not concerned with geometric coordinates transformations. For performing flicker-free animation you should draw each frame on a memory DC, and then blit the ready picture on your window DC. -- WB...
