I think that the only way to do it is have DX in windowed mode, or have 2 monitors. I don''t know if there is something else, but that is all I can think of... I have the same problem

Funny. I have never had any problems debugging a full-screen dx-apps with Borland C++Builder...

Systemwide lock when locking your surfaces may cause problems, but that can be countered by using DDLOCK_NOSYSLOCK (or w2k...).

I, however, prefer windowed development over fullscreen, as I can have several watch/debugoutput windows open at runtime. Sooo much easier.
