For general 'How does it work' info, look in MSDN or APIGuide. If you have a more specific question then post it.

The general idea of bitblt (bit block transfer) is that its a _very_ fast API transfer of a block of stdpicture object - be it a picturebox.picture / image, image.picture / image, or a bitmap loaded into memory.
The way to produce animation would be to bitblt one image to the form, then clear it, bitblt again slightyl offset to its first position, clear it..... etc etc..... most likely done in a Timer.
