Creating the CBitmapPicture Object



CBitmapPicture is derived from CBitmap. It allows the user to load jpg, gif, bmp, and dib formats from a file or from the resouce and store them as a CBitmap object.

Public Operations

  • Load from file given supplied path
  • BOOL Load(CString sFilePathName);
  • Load from resouce; give ResourceName and Type
  • BOOL Load(UINT ResourceName, CString ResourceType);
  • Display CFileDialog and choose from supported image types
  • BOOL SelectFileAndLoad();

CBitmapPicture uses the IPicture interface just as Internet Explorer does to load jpg and gif files. The IPicture interface is then converted to a bitmap interface.

CBitmpaPicture utilizes code from:
class CPicture—Author: Dr. Yovav Gad, EMail:, Web:
function LoadBMPImage—Author: Zafir Anjum

Example Usage

  • Load a job from resource; then Select it into CStatic Image object m_Display
  • Picture.Load(IDR_JPG_SPACE31,"JPG")
  • Select and Load file; then Select into CStatic Image object m_Display
  • if(Picture.SelectFileAndLoad())
