Thread: Write to desktop?

  1. #1
    Peter Young Guest

    Write to desktop?

    Is there a way to write to the desktop in the same way that Windows does when it displays
    the OS Version info on the desktop in the lower right corner?

    TIA,

    Pete Young

    you need to get the desktop DC handle by using

    hWnd = GetDesktopWindow()
    hDC = GetDC(hWnd)

    hope this help.
