Message Boxes kill DirectDraw Apps ???

Recommended Posts

Hello, A very stupid question : Why pop-up Messages Boxes (like NET SEND under WIN/NT) or other messages boxes (error of background process) kill my full-screen DirectDraw game ??? The DDW program finishes with an internal windows error (not the beautiful blue screen, but the red cross). Very boring... Thanks for replies...

Your program loses focus and terminates, problably because it cannot perform a flip, lost surfaces, or other funnies. Make sure you capture the windows events for gaining and losing focus.
