Hello everyone

I've faced a new hindrance.(Don't judge harshly, I'm a novice in MFC)

The issue is how to add picture control to Main Frame in MFC project?

I created a new MFC project with Ribbon style and the problem is that I can't just open the Toolbox and add a picture control to the main frame just using a Form Designer. I have no opportunity to manipulate with the hole Window(like in Dialog Based option)-- only with the Ribbon.

My task is get the picture path from the OpenDialog(no problem with that Smile | :) )
and load the picture using ONLY OpenCV. ( I don't need any other methods like CImage.Load() or ATL functions). I red OpenCV CookBook (they use QT or directly load a picture to a separate window via cv::imshow) and browsed many other MFC books that i could find, but no use.

I've seen many solutions how to Draw( lines,rectangles and other things) on Frame. They do it into OnDraw(CDC* pDC) in YourProjectView class, but nothing how to do add a picture container into Main Frame. I only strive for MSPaint functionality( choose pct->and load it)

Maybe I should add a pictureBox or smth else in resource file(But how?? only I see there is Bitmap) or create it dynamically in the code(but how to Link it with the Main Frame ??)

As I mentioned before I've been searching all over the Internet and in the many MFC books, before I decided to write my question.

Please give me a clue. Heeelp

I've solved the problem. The theme is closed.
The main impediment was with the receiving the right context.
Several hours debugging led me to the working code. hurray! :)
