Any ideas on how to do that?

My idea was to create an CDialog, load an bmp-image that fills the whole dialog. This bmp-image would be how my program should look like. The picture would contain buttons. Here i will make an CButton owner-draw-class where i show a new picture (on that area) when the button is pressed. When the button is no longer pressed, the CButton should be transperant/invisible.

It is the last part that is my problem. I dont know how to restore/redraw the dialog's bmp-image from the cbutton. Any ideas?

Kind regards

Never mind, I just copied the original background and display that when the button should be invisible. Like:

Transparent ListBox[^]

I would just be smarter if I could get the parent-window (the dialog) to redraw the area where the button is placed... without the button getting a redraw-command.

Kind regards
