I'm using plain C to call these functions of GDI+ ,and response WM_PAINT with this function ,the last call of GdipDrawImage returns 0, it means success ,but on my picture control I can not find my picture on it.

Before starting to deal with any runtime issues, throw out this code and write it in human way. Look at the two first lines inside the implementation of LoadImgFromGDIP: you call LoadLibrary again and again with the same DLL. This is not yet a reason for some runtime failures, but this is more enough for stopping to look at your code anymore. It's hard to imagine that a person doing weirdest things can accomplish something more complex; I would be glad if I'm wrong about you, but you certainly need to make a first step and fix it.

Please, no offense; and sorry for not giving you a complete solution; please understand that if could hardly really help you. You really need to learn how to write reasonable code yourself.

Well ,I got your advice ,I have fixed the issue which is calling LoadLibrary again and again with the same DLL ,but I still don't know what is wrong with it ,I know my codes are hard to read ,I am testing these codes ,so I will reorganise codes later ,can you please give some more advice about this question?

Don't use LoadLibrary, link all standard libraries into your application, that will ensure that you get the correct versions. And you should not be using plain C to use GDI+ as it is an object based system: see[^].

You are also painting your window in the wrong place, you should only do it in response to a WM_PAINT message. There are many tutorials on the internet that explain how to write Windows programs properly. See[^] for a good starter.

Yes ,I responded to the WM_PAINT message with these codes ,and I really want to GDI+ with plain C ,so do you have any advice for "how to use GDI+ in plain C" here?

You cannot use it in plain C, it is a class based library. See

I have read some VB source codes ,they are using flat api of gdi+ ,and actually they work well ,why can't I use that flat api in plain C?

Try it and see what happens. But, as the notes on that page clearly state, if it doesn't work then you will get no help.
