Dialogs in DirectX Fullscreen applications

Recommended Posts

It is possible to show a normal windows dialog in a directx fullscreen application? I need a way to show a info box from another application in a directx application to inform the user about changes. It would be great, when everyone can tell me a solution of the problem.

In the LPDIRECTDRAW7 interface there is a method called FlipToGDISurface. This will show visible dialogs; but you cannot flip the surface after calling FlipToGDISurface.

I'm not sure if it will show dialog boxes from other applications though.
