void CMyListBox::MeasureItem(LPMEASUREITEMSTRUCT lpMeasureItemStruct)
CDC* pDC = GetDC();

error C2440: 'initializing' : cannot convert from 'struct HDC__ *' to 'class WTL::CDCT<1> *'

I write this code in VC6.0, how to get the dc of a control?

GetDC() is a Win32 API function; you need to use the correct WTL function that returns a CDC*. Check the WTL documentation.

I am no WTL expert, but how about

WTL::CDC dc = GetDC();
