Well I've made a lot of progress on my app, but I'm stuck on figuring out how to add a bitmap. I have a notebook and a page panel. On this panel I want to put a backdrop image and scale it to the size of the panel. How do I do this? I looked at some of the samples related to bitmaps and I could not see how to apply that to my situation. Thanks, T.

I added: class Backdrop < Wx::Window def initialize(parent, image) @parent = parent @image = Wx::Image.new(image) super(parent) evt_erase_background :on_erase_background end def on_erase_background(evt) size = @parent.get_client_size set_size(size) @image.scale(size.get_width, size.get_height) evt.dc.draw_bitmap(@image.to_bitmap, 0, 0, false) end end And then added an instance of it to my panel's boxsizer: file = (DIR + '/images/cover.jpg') image = Backdrop.new(cover_panel, file) cover_sizer.add(image) It draws the image initially but it isn't scaled for some reason and then when I resize the window it shrinks to a small square.

Remove the set_size from the on_erase_background(), you shouldn't use set_size() in on_erase_background().
