Solution 1

You need to do the drawing in the OnPaint() handler.

Don't you keep a list of the drawing objects? Simply repaint the list in OnPaint().

Solution 2

1.) you should never paint outside a paint message.
2.) you should store your data (bitmap or point-list).
3.) you should handle the erase and the paint messages.
4.) draw your lines (or whatelse) onpaint message.
5.) to paint into a bitmap is very simple but limited to the bitmap size themselves.
Good luck.

6.) to update the window - call the InvalidateRect function.
