Can someone please explain the steps for enumarating adapters, devices, and modes ? Tell me if this is correct : Each adapter is a physical video card. Device is a video configuration of some sort. Mode is a display mode (as we all know it) I understood from the SDK that not every format (D3DFORMAT) is supported by each device. Is it correct to do it as follows : for each adapter for each supported device for each supporeted format get display modes supported by this format of the current device [Edited by - DesignerX on August 11, 2005 2:14:28 PM]
