Excuse me,how to get surface and save it to file?(snap)Please give me code.Thands.

Not to be blunt, but thats not a well asked question:
1. What version of DirectX are you using?
2. What language (Managed or C++ probably)

There are a couple of D3DX functions that will do the trick for you:
D3DXSaveSurfaceToFile( )
D3DXSaveTextureToFile( )

Both of those are standard C++/D3DX9 functions, i'm pretty sure they've existed as the same name in at least the last few releases of the C++ SDK. If you're using managed code, follow the links in the MSDN help files to find the equivelent.
