Need information on creating programmatically a single color bitmap.

Need information on creating programmatically a single color bitmap.

(OP)
I'm not sure if this is the best way to do this, but here's what I'm doing... In a test app, I have a form with 2 picture boxes, a command button, and the MS common dialog control. The button allows me to bring up the "ShowColor" dialog form... and I pick a color. The first picture box's backcolor property is set to the color I picked. Now, I want to take this color and create a device independant bitmap (of the same color). Then I want to take the DIB (in memory and be able to do things with it.. such as overlay another bitmap on top of it. (ie. I have a picture of a plane... and a single color DIB of blue, or black, or orange..or whatever. The color would be full screen.. then I would blit or paint the picture on the color.) Anyone have any knowledge on doing this? I feel like I should be doing something with the Image property of the first picturebox.. also I feel that I'll need to use the hdc's in this too. Please email me if this isn't clear... Thanks much!
