Hello i'm new to programming
i am trying to learn how to display a bitmap on a window using the GDI.
i couldn't find any decent tutorials with code that worked on the net.
so i decided to strip down the winAnim example that shipped with Dev C++ V 18.104.22.168 untill all it did was display a bitmap. After i successfully did this i then decided to write one myself using the pre generated code that Dev C++ outputs when you create a new windows project. my code all compiles without any errors or warnings but it displays no picture.
when i compare my project to the stripped down winAnim project the only difference that i can spot is that in the project optionsfiles tab the WinAnim has a tick next to the include in linking when you select the .rc file.
And in my project that option is greyed out.
if any one can help me this would be great
