Usually you adjust the drawing context's scale. Something like (untested):
(define bm (read-bitmap ...)) (define dc (send image-box get-dc)) (define t (send dc get-transformation)) ; save old scale (send dc scale (/ (send image-box get-width) (send bm get-width)) (/ (send image-box get-height) (send bm get-height))) (send dc draw-bitmap bm 0 0) (send dc set-transformation t) ; restore old scale If you want to create a new bitmap with the exact size you want, then you create a new bitmap and use the same strategy: (define new-bm (make-bitmap w h)) (define dc (send new-bm get-dc)) ; same as above Does that help?
