Hi, I am working on displaying continuous image streams(bmp) using vc++. I have tried using a simple file read and display operations using mfc. which is now displaying one frame. method i used: used standard mfc procedure to open a window for picture. later i used file read operation to read data of a bitmap image to a buffer. which is then displayed. I used a buffer, because, for my application i need to dump continuous image frames to a buiffer and display. But, i am not able to display continuous frames. Any code snippet or steps would help. I also tried the method from the book "learn visual c++ in 21days" but didnt suceed. any one implemented this procedure, kindly let me know the implemented steps. so that i can cross check. for displaying frames as in a slide show.(bmp images) I tried dumping image file names into a file and then reading each file names from it and display it on the window. struck. Kindly let me know about it, as i have further queries related to the same.
