Returns a pointer to a CBitmap object when given a handle to a Windows GDI bitmap.

static CBitmap* PASCAL FromHandle( 
   HBITMAP hBitmap  


Specifies a Windows GDI bitmap.

A pointer to a CBitmap object if successful; otherwise NULL.

If a CBitmap object is not already attached to the handle, a temporary CBitmap object is created and attached. This temporary CBitmap object is valid only until the next time the application has idle time in its event loop, at which time all temporary graphic objects are deleted. Another way of saying this is that the temporary object is only valid during the processing of one window message.
