Associates a new bitmap with the static control.
The bitmap will be automatically drawn in the static control. By default, it will be drawn in the upper-left corner and the static control will be resized to the size of the bitmap.
You can use various window and static control styles, including the following:
SS_BITMAP Use this style always for bitmaps.
SS_CENTERIMAGE Use to center in the static control. If the image is larger than the static control, it will be clipped. If it is smaller than the static control, the empty space around the image will be filled by the color of the pixel in the upper left corner of the bitmap.
The following example creates two CStatic objects on the heap. It then loads one with a system bitmap using CBitmap::LoadOEMBitmap and the other from a file using CImage::Load.
// Code such as this could be placed in the OnInitDialog callback. // It creates two bitmap static controls on the heap, using members // _m_pCStatic_A and _m_pCStatic_B to identify them so that they can // be destroyed when no longer needed. CBitmap CBmp; CImage CImg; // Create a child bitmap static control and load it from a CBitmap object. _m_pCStatic_A = new CStatic; _m_pCStatic_A->Create(_T("A bitmap static control (A)"), WS_CHILD|WS_BORDER|WS_VISIBLE|SS_BITMAP|SS_CENTERIMAGE, CRect(16,16,64,64), pParentWnd); CBmp.LoadOEMBitmap(OBM_CLOSE); // Loads one of the default Windows bitmaps _m_pCStatic_A->SetBitmap( HBITMAP(CBmp) ); _m_pCStatic_A->ShowWindow( SW_SHOW ); // Create a child bitmap static control and load it from a CImage object. _m_pCStatic_B = new CStatic; _m_pCStatic_B->Create(_T("A bitmap static control (B)"), WS_CHILD|WS_BORDER|WS_VISIBLE|SS_BITMAP|SS_CENTERIMAGE, CRect(90,16,138,64), pParentWnd); CImg.Load( _T("test.png") ); if( _m_pCStatic_B->GetBitmap( ) == NULL ) _m_pCStatic_B->SetBitmap( HBITMAP(CImg) ); /* Then, later: delete( _m_pCStatic_A ); delete( _m_pCStatic_B ); */
