    mDC = CreateCompatibleDC(hdc);
    iRet = GDIPCreate(mDC, &graphics);
    WCHAR szFilePath[256];
    MultiByteToWideChar(CP_ACP, 0, TEXT("1.bmp"), -1, szFilePath, 256);

    iRet = GDIPDrawImg(graphics, img, 0, 0);
    if (iRet != 0){
        MB(TEXT("ERROR,GDIPDrawImg"), 1);//MessageBox
    EndPaint(hPIC_LOGO, &ps);

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.
