How do I make sure the standard MessageBox appears in front of the Fullscreen DX7 Primary surface? Its wierd, on my P2/350 with a GeForce256 it works properly every time, but on a laptop with a Savage3D chipset it hides every time, its probably a Gfx Design/Driver problem.. or that S3 are just crap fullstop.

As a related aside, FliptoGDI was taken out for DX8, so while this works for DX7 those of us using DX8 can''t use it. The currently recommended solution is to minimize your app, show the dialog, then bring it back. Yuck.

Stay Casual,
