    I am trying to write a simle program in MFC (MSVC++ 2003 .NET) that prints a rectangle to the dialog box. Thats all. I created a class to do this:

    //------rectangle class definition---------------
    class DrawRectangle : public CDialog
    CRect rect;
    CClientDC *pDC;
    CPoint A, B, C, D;

    void DrawRect();
    //--------------------end class def.------------

    And here is the DrawRect() function:

    //-------------start function def.---------------
    void DrawRectangle::DrawRect()
    pDC = new CClientDC(this);
    pDC->Rectangle(0, 0, 100, 100);
    delete pDC;
    //----------------end function def-------------

    And here is the call to DrawRect():

    //-----------------start call------------------
    DrawRectangle *wawa = new DrawRectangle;
    //--------------------end call----------------

    I get a "Debug Assertation Failed" error when I click the button I made that calls DrawRect(). Any ideas? Thanks.
