May I ask exactly why you don''t want to learn from the SDK? You do need to read a big portion of it anyway, if you want to advance in your efforts to learn to use DX.

It is not as scary as it seems - all the sections have some helpful tutorials to get you started.

Also, DX9 is even more beginner-friendly than 8, with many new helper functions especially for D3D.

Managed D3D9 is even better!

By the way; how do you quote it replies?
Do you add links using XML or something eg <link>linktext,url<\link> ?
