Works perfect! Thank you very much. But can you explain about BLENDFUNCTION, DC, BITMAPS, etc. or give a good article about it all? And why UpdateLayeredWindow need to call not in cycle?

I can't give a good explanation on these things since I barely know enough myself to get it working.
If you just want to know how a specific structure or function looks like you should check the MSDN documentation, everything is explained in detail there.

That is just how it works. By calling that function you are basically giving control of the rendering to windows.
