Thank you, I can create device successfully.
But another problem appear when I create device using the variable d3ddev.
It appears error message as below:

Error 1 error C2664: 'IDirect3D9::CreateDevice' : cannot convert parameter 6 from 'cli::interior_ptr<Type>' to 'IDirect3DDevice9 **' d:\svn\.....\PreviewView.h 121

So I use another local variable(d3ddevTmp) to create device and then set the d3ddevTmp to d3ddev member variable.

That is my partial source code:

public ref class PreviewView : public System::Windows::Forms::UserControl


private: void initD3D(HWND hHandle)
d3d = Direct3DCreate9(D3D_SDK_VERSION); // create the Direct3D interface

ZeroMemory(pd3dpp, sizeof(*pd3dpp)); // clear out the struct for use
pd3dpp->Windowed = true; // program windowed, not fullscreen
pd3dpp->SwapEffect = D3DSWAPEFFECT_DISCARD; // discard old frames
pd3dpp->hDeviceWindow = hHandle; // set the window to be used by Direct3D


// create a device class using this information and information from the d3dpp stuct
