The StartExporting method causes the export object to allocate memory for the export based on resolution, bit depth, and pixel bounds.  The method returns a long that represents the hDC (Windows GDI Device Context handle) of the export object.  After this method is called, the export object is ready to receive GDI draw instructions directed to its hDC.
