My code draws the picture, but it doesn''t scale right. Well, it does scale, but only part of the picture is scaled. When I test at resolution 1280x1024, the entire picture is scaled fine and everything works. When I test at resolution 1024x768, less of the picture is scaled, and only 1/2 the picture is scaled in 800x600(the original size of the picture). I''m trying to scale a background image so it''ll work with any resolution. The picture is 800x600. Here''s the header file for my drawing class:
// draw.h: interface for the draw class.

	textures.push_back(texture);//Push pointer to texture to back
	textureinfo.push_back(imageinfo);//Push image information 
	return textures.size()-1;//Return index to picture
The picture-drawing function:
//Draw a scaled picture

BOOL draw::DrawPicture(int x, int y, int thewidth,int theheight,int picture, RECT *rect) {
	if (drawing==false)
	//Remember the rectangle''s values

	int originalx=rect->right,originaly=rect->bottom;
	bool xchanged=false,ychanged=false;
	if (x <0) {//Clip the left and top of the rectangle. The bottom and right are below.

	if (y<0) {
	//Clip the right and bottom of the rectangle

	if (rect->right>rect->left&&(x+(rect->right-rect->left))>width-1) {//If rectangle needs clipping...

		rect->right-=((rect->right-rect->left)+x)-width;//Clip the rectangle

		xchanged=true;//Set variable so rectangle is restored after it''s clipped and used

	if (rect->bottom>rect->top&&(y+(rect->bottom-rect->top))>height-1) {//See above

	//Calculate scaling vector

	D3DXVECTOR2 result(((float)thewidth)/(rect->right-rect->left),((float)theheight)/(rect->bottom-rect->top));
	//Calculate matrix

	D3DXMATRIX matrix;
	//Set transformation matrix into sprite

	//Draw picture

	h = sprite->Draw(textures[picture],rect,NULL,&D3DXVECTOR3(x,y,0),0xFFFFFFFF);
	if (FAILED(h)) {
		string debugstring = "Couldn''t draw picture: ";
	//If we altered the rectangle while clipping it, set it back to normal

	if (xchanged) if (x>0)rect->right=originalx;else rect->left=originalx;
	if (ychanged) if (y>0)rect->bottom=originaly;else rect->top=originaly;
	if (drawing==false)
	return h;
The GetTextureWidth/Height functions:
int draw::GetTextureWidth(int picture) {
	unsigned int width = textureinfo[picture].Width;//Retrieve picture information structure
	return width;

int draw::GetTextureHeight(int picture) {
	unsigned int height = textureinfo[picture].Height;//Retrieve picture information structure
	return height;
	RECT titlerect={0,0,drawing.GetTextureWidth(title),drawing.GetTextureHeight(title)};
drawing.Flip();//Left-over from my DirectDraw class. Calls Present();
Right now, the code is very un-optimized. The sprite-Begin() and sprite-End() calls are in every DrawPicture() call, etc. But I want to get it working first. I have a feeling the scaling itself works fine, but I''m getting the source rectangle wrong. Any clue as to what''s wrong?

...And it works! The clipping was left over from DirectDraw, and I decided to just leave it there since it worked before. Thanks for your help. Strangely though, when I commented out the clipping before, it just messed it up even more.

There''s another problem drawing, though. Alpha transparency doesn''t seem to be working. I had it working on DX9.0a, and now it isn''t.
