For using BitBlt, you must convert the height and width dimensions to pixels.

If you are using a StdPicture object, this is really quite simple. You simply have the Form scale from vbHimetric to vbPixels, for example:

Me.ScaleX(aStdPic.Width, vbHimetric, vbPixels)

However, if you have a bitmap in memory and only have a handle, you must use the GetObject API to pull that bitmaps information into a BITMAP type.

I've attached an example program custom tailored just for you that demonstrates both methods.
