I am using DX7 (still) There is a DirectDrawSurface7.DrawCircle method along with SetDrawstyle and SetFillstyle. What is the equivalent for IDirectDrawSurface7? Thanks for any help.

[wow] DX7. Are you writing software for a museum piece? [lol]

From a quick scan of the documentation it would seem that the functions you mention were added to the interface for VB6 only. At a guess they'll be implemented via GDI and the ::GetDC() mechanism...

It's been commented on a few times. However, I'm working with BlitzMax which is still DX7.
A kind soul has created a DX9 driver but the same problem exists.
Can't say I understand the GetDC mechanism but I will have a look.
Thanks
