Generally a fullscreen app can be made by setting a few fields in the PresentParameters of your app. Namely, set windowed to false and BackBufferWidth/BackBufferHeight to the desired resolution you want your app to run at. Hope that helps.

U235's reply covers what you need, but be aware that the backbuffer width & height have to be supported by your adapter. You can obtain the current desktop resolution for this through System.Windows.Forms.Screen.Primary.Bounds.

Also check this recent thread for more info and pitfalls.

Using controls as a render target? I think you need to switch render targets to an actual window when swicthing to fullscreen if you're using a panel, picturebox or such as a render target in windowed mode. Kept me busy for a while.

you will also need to disable the window border of your Form when going to full screen (set the FormBorderstyle to None)
