1) You create a texture
2) Get the surface of that texture
3) Set the Render target of the device to that texture
4) Render your scene

That's about it.
Here is some simple C# code from a Blur sample I wrote for mdxinfo
[source lang=cpp]
using (Surface originalSurface = device.GetRenderTarget(0))
using (Surface sceneSurface = sceneTexture.GetSurfaceLevel(0))
{
device.SetRenderTarget(0, sceneSurface);
device.Clear(ClearFlags.Target | ClearFlags.ZBuffer, 0x002D32AA, 1.0f, 0);
try
{
//Just rendering the cube normally
RenderCube(camera);
}
finally
{
//Set the original render target
device.SetRenderTarget(0, originalSurface);
}
}



I hope this helps.

this is what I have in C++.


CComPtr<ID3DXRenderToSurface> m_rtsHelper;
CComPtr<IDirect3DTexture9> m_renderTexture;
CComPtr<IDirect3DSurface9> m_renderSurface;
CComPtr<ID3DXSprite> m_d3dSpr;
int m_renderSize;




if(FAILED(D3DXCreateRenderToSurface(d3ddev, m_renderSize, m_renderSize, D3DFMT_X8R8G8B8, true, D3DFMT_D24X8, &m_rtsHelper)))
{
#ifdef _DEBUG
SHOWERROR(TEXT("Failed to create render surface."), __FILE__, __LINE__);
#endif
return;
}
if(FAILED(D3DXCreateTexture(d3ddev, m_renderSize, m_renderSize, 1, D3DUSAGE_RENDERTARGET, D3DFMT_X8R8G8B8, D3DPOOL_DEFAULT, &m_renderTexture)))
{
#ifdef _DEBUG
SHOWERROR(TEXT("Failed to create render texture."), __FILE__, __LINE__);
#endif
return;
}

if(FAILED(m_renderTexture->GetSurfaceLevel(0, &m_renderSurface)))
{
#ifdef _DEBUG
SHOWERROR(TEXT("Failed to get render surface level."), __FILE__, __LINE__);
#endif
return;
}
D3DXCreateSprite(d3ddev, &m_d3dSpr);




m_rtsHelper->BeginScene(m_renderSurface, NULL);
d3ddev->Clear(0, 0, D3DCLEAR_TARGET | D3DCLEAR_ZBUFFER, D3DCOLOR_XRGB(0, 0, 0), 1.0f, 0);
......................
......................
......................
m_rtsHelper->EndScene(0);

m_d3dSpr->Begin(D3DXSPRITE_DONOTSAVESTATE);
m_d3dSpr->GetTransform(&sprScal);
m_d3dSpr->Draw(m_renderTexture, &rect, &sprCenter, &sprPosition, D3DCOLOR_XRGB(255, 255, 255));
m_d3dSpr->End();
