hello. i cant figure out how to do this using Microsoft.DirectX; and then somewhere DirectDraw.Device DDraw = null; it says im missing a reference, but im not. i know i could go using Microsoft.DirectX.DirectDraw; but i want to use dinput too, all in the same class; why does this happen?

you have to add a reference in your solution browser window... there should be a tab for references. you can then add the directx components that you need.

using "using" just acts as a shortcut to members of the classes, instead of having to type out the whole path.

using DirectDraw = Microsoft.DirectX.DirectDraw;
using DirectInput = Microsoft.DirectX.DirectInput;


DirectDraw.Device DDraw = null;
DirectInput.Device Keyboard = null; // or whatever...
