Visual C++ .NET 2005 Bitmap problem

P: 6
I'm trying to learn how to modify Bitmaps programatically.

As a first attempt, I'm trying to simply create a blank bitmap, programatically change it to all red, and display it in a pictureBox.

The following code builds without error and, under "Start Without Debugging" runs without error except the blank pictureBox remains blank - no red bitmap is displayed in it. Any suggestions?
private: System::Void button1_Click (System::Object^ sender, System::EventArgs^ e)
Bitmap^ TempBitmap;
TempBitmap = gcnew Bitmap(33,33);
Color TempColor;
unsigned char cArg;
unsigned char cRed;
unsigned char cGreen;
unsigned char cBlue;
for (int i=0; i<33; i++)
for (int j=0; j<33; j++)
cArg = 255;
cRed = 255;
cGreen = 0;
cBlue = 0;
pictureBox1->Image = TempBitmap;
label4->Text = "DONE";
Yes, I know it's inefficient to put the color assignments inside the loop because they never change. But, since that's where I'll eventually put color modifications coding, they make good placeholders. :-)

Odd, the "(" is there in the snippet I copied, I don't know how it got lost. :-(

Thanks to Viorel at social_dot_msdn_dot_microsoft_dot_com, the solution is to replace the TempColor assignment line with:

TempColor = Color::FromArgb(cArg,cRed,cGreen,cBlue);

I’ve tested this and it works.
