hey, i've some problems with CreatePatternBrush. Following is a piece of code. the goal is to fill a ellipse with a bitmap. the problem is that the bitmap isn't displayed correctly. let's take for example that a make a ellipse that is 40*40 pixels. then i create a bitmap that has the same size and is filled with one color. when i draw the ellipse only some lines with the color are shown in the ellipse. is there a problem in the following code?

mov myDC,eax
INVOKE CreateSolidBrush,00000000h
mov blackbrush,eax
INVOKE CreateCompatibleDC,myDC
mov backbuffer,eax			
INVOKE CreateCompatibleBitmap,myDC,screenrect.right,screenrect.bottom
mov backbitmap,eax			
INVOKE SelectObject,backbuffer,backbitmap
mov oldbit,eax
INVOKE FillRect, backbuffer, ADDR screenrect, blackbrush	

invoke LoadBitmap,hInstance,2000
mov bmphandle,eax
invoke CreatePatternBrush,eax
mov brushhandle,eax
invoke SelectObject,backbuffer,eax

Windows 95: Creating brushes from bitmaps or DIBs larger than 8x8 pixels is not supported. If a larger bitmap is specified, only a portion of the bitmap is used.

ouch! hehe :P but why does it work with a example i downloaded from the web? it displays a very big bitmap on the back of the window. there's bugs bunny and tweety on the bitmap, i'm sure you know that example. why does that work? and: is there another possibility to use a bigger bitmap to use in a brush to fill a ellipse? thanks in advance
