HI,here a question Can DX surface pointer(like LPDIRECTDRAWSURFACE and higher) be used in calling funtions? For Example, //define FunctionA: FunctionA(LPDIRECTDRAWSURFACE7 lpDDS_EX,...) { ... } LPDIRECTDRAWSURFACE7 lpDDSP; ...Here some operations over it... FunctionA(lpDDSP,....); Can it work Correct?

I do that all the time. I see no reason why it wouldn''t work even if I didn''t know it did (confusing? ). It is just a pointer to an object, which is legal to pass to a function. You can pass just about anything if you try hard enough... maybe I should add that to my signature.
