Hi all! Just wondering, is there some hidden rule or something about mixing MFC aand DirectX? I tried to make a simple Dialog-based MFC app, with a button. And with the whenclickedon event for the button, I initialize DirectDraw and... well, DirectX will NOT start! Am I missing something, or what? I was just hoping to make a quick GUI with MFC... anybody know what''s up?

1. Add a CStatic component (rect,bitmap whatever) to dialog.
2. Use GetDlgItem(IDC_STATIC)->GetSafeHwnd() as hwnd for initializing directx.
Hope this work!
