Hello everybody, I use the IDirect3DDevice9::Reset function when I want to switch my program to fullscreen mode. Switching to fullscreen usually results in screen resolution change. So I want my program to be notified, so that it can handle the changes. Does anyone know how to capture this event from window messages? Thanks.

Thanks for replaying.

I've tried this message. But windows does not generate this message after calling IDirect3DDevice9::Reset...

Given that you're the one making the call to Reset(), can't you just compare the present parameters before and after?

Or are you asking if you can be notified when the screen res has finished changing? Sadly I don't think there's a way to do that - it's all hardware-dependent.

you could post the message yourself using PostMessage immediately after calling Reset. It may not be what the intent of the message originally was, but there's nothing stopping you from doing it.
