The new home for Visual Studio documentation is Visual Studio 2017 Documentation on docs.microsoft.com.

The latest version of this topic can be found at PAINTSTRUCT Structure.

The PAINTSTRUCT structure contains information that can be used to paint the client area of a window.

typedef struct tagPAINTSTRUCT {  
    HDC hdc;  
    BOOL fErase;  
    RECT rcPaint;  
    BOOL fRestore;  
    BOOL fIncUpdate;  
    BYTE rgbReserved[16];  
} PAINTSTRUCT;  

Parameters

hdc

The application is responsible for drawing the background if a Windows window-class is created without a background brush (see the description of the hbrBackground member of the WNDCLASS structure in the Windows SDK).

rcPaint
Specifies the upper left and lower right corners of the rectangle in which the painting is requested.

fRestore
Reserved member. It is used internally by Windows.

fIncUpdate
