    help for the beginner

    what is the reason that CreateCompatibleDC()
    gives me the error code 87?

    Thanks for your help!

    Re: help for the beginner

    MSDN documentation states the following:

    If the function succeeds, the return value is the handle to a memory DC.

    If the function fails, the return value is NULL.

    Windows NT/ 2000: To get extended error information, call GetLastError.

    Are you sure it's really an error and not the value of the DC itself?
