About This Course
=================

This self-study course is one of a series of courses developed by PSS
Worldwide Training to help software engineers develop expertise in
areas of Windows that they have not previously explored. The course
focuses on common programming errors, common troubleshooting
scenarios, documentation errors, and Windows issues, in addition to
common application programming techniques. This course was designed
and the technical content supplied by engineers who provide developers
with Windows programming support. The information included here has
been determined by these specialists to be what you need to know about
this topic in order to successfully implement it into your
application.

What You Will Learn
===================

After completing this course, you will be able to:
--------------------------------------------------

- Understand the motivation for using device-independent bitmaps
(.DIB files).
- Have a working knowledge of the DIB-related data structures and
data types.
- Be able to implement and troubleshoot code that:

- Reads and/or writes .DIB files.
- Displays .DIB files on graphical devices.
- Converts .DIB files to device-dependent bitmaps (.DDB files),
.DDBs to .DIBs, and .DIBs to other .DIB file formats.

- Be able to describe the common problems encountered by Windows
developers as they attempt to implement DIB-handling code.

Installing the Self-Study Module
================================

First, copy DIBS.ZIP and PKUNZIP.EXE from the enclosed disk to the
directory where you want the course installed. Change to that
directory and enter the following command:

pkunzip dibs.zip

Next, run SETUP.BAT, which will unzip CLASS.ZIP and create the
appropriate directory structure. For this batch file to work
correctly, PKUNZIP.EXE must be in the current path.

Directory Structure
-------------------

The directory structure created by SETUP.BAT has a LABS subdirectory
and a TRAINING subdirectory. The TRAINING subdirectory contains a help
file for the self-study course, a compiled version of the sample code,
and a .DLL (dynamic-link library) for the Print All feature. The LABS
subdirectory contains the labs used in this course. In some of the
individual lab subdirectories there is a DONECODE and either a
BASECODE or CUSTCODE subdirectory. The BASECODE or CUSTCODE
subdirectory contains the code for the lab; the student modifies this
code to get the desired results. The DONECODE subdirectory contains
the code for the solutions to the lab.

Getting Started
---------------

Once you have successfully installed the self-study module, run
Windows and bring up the File Manager. Go to the TRAINING subdirectory
in the directory where you installed the self-study module and double-
click the DIBS.HLP file. This will run the Windows Help engine and
load the self-study module. You are now ready to begin the course.

Print All Feature
-----------------

You can choose Print All from the File menu to print the entire
contents of the .HLP file containing the course.

NOTE: Once you start printing the contents of the .HLP file, you
cannot stop it. While it is printing, you will not be able to send
input to the computer. Also, there is no option to print to a file;
the print job must go directly to the printer.
