Draw Fast Rectangles to fill window backgrounds

If you're filling the background yourself, remember to either do it in OnEraseBkgnd or to not do it at all use:
  BOOL CMyDlgOrControl::OnEraseBkgnd(CDC* pDC) {return TRUE;}
If you're filling it black or white use:
  PatBlt(Rect.left, Rect.top, Rect.Width(), Rect.Height(), BLACKNESS);
or:
  PatBlt(Rect.left, Rect.top, Rect.Width(), Rect.Height(), WHITENESS);
to fill with the current dialog background colour use:
  dc.FillSolidRect(&Rect, GetSysColor(COLOR_3DFACE)); // Draw in dialogs background colour
There is more about drawing on the Graphics section of this site.
