Hi I have no problems changing into fullscreen and back. What I want to know if there is a special message generated when a use presses Alt + Return or do I have to hook that myself in some KEYDOWN message? Thanks // Javelin -- Why do something today when you can do it tomorrow... --

Alternatively do what the DirectX SDK samples do and use an accelerator with Alt+Enter as its key sequence.

if new make a new desktop (createdesktop) you can stop alt-f4, ctrl-alt-delete, alt-tab etc. It''s default.

It also stops things like ICQ popping up or flashing over it, and no start bar at all.

Then if you want to alt-tab back, just write your key handler to trap the alt and tab presses, then call switchdesktop.

No resizing, no changing of displays, just a single call (you may want to have your program stop playing and stuff in the background - ie pause - whilst you are alt-tabbed out).
