Thread which calls CreateCompatibleDC thread must live as long as the DC.
Project Member Reported by, Aug 29 2013 Back to list
MSDN states, with regard to CreateCompatibleDC(HDC hdc):

If hdc is NULL, the thread that calls CreateCompatibleDC owns the HDC that is created. When this thread is destroyed, the HDC is no longer valid. Thus, if you create the HDC and pass it to another thread, then exit the first thread, the second thread will not be able to use the HDC.

This was noticed because a recent test bot on Chromium caught this with the following error message

12:39:22 [INFO] Found 1 error reports
12:39:22 [INFO] Report #1
GDI USAGE ERROR: DC 0x710107bc used for select was created by now-exited thread 4540 by duplicating NULL, which makes it a thread-private DC
