PAINTSTRUCT info  Overview  Group

The PAINTSTRUCT structure contains information for an application. This information can be used to paint the client area of a window owned by that application.

typedef struct tagPAINTSTRUCT { // ps 

    HDC  hdc; 

    BOOL fErase; 

    RECT rcPaint; 

    BOOL fRestore; 

    BOOL fIncUpdate; 

    BYTE rgbReserved[32]; 




Identifies the display DC to be used for painting.
Specifies whether the background must be erased. This value is nonzero if the application should erase the background. The application is responsible for erasing the background if a window class is created without a background brush. For more information, see the description of the hbrBackground member of the WNDCLASS structure.
Specifies a RECT structure that specifies the upper left and lower right corners of the rectangle in which the painting is requested.
