Floating point dds

Is there a DirectX API function that saves a buffer in memory as a .dds to disk?

I have a 2D array of positive and negative floating point values generated by my program. I wish to save this as a .dds image, which I read supports float.

I can only find info on saving/exporting to .dds via DirectX Texture conversion tool or other stand alone programs.

I searched the The DirectX SDK help file for dds and there are only samples for reading the dds.

Also, I'm curious if floating point dds are fully supported by popular image processing or shader development software.

Thanks

The easiest way I can think of is to create a texture of the appropriate format, lock it, copy your floating point values in, unlock it, and call D3DXSaveTextureToFile() (Assuming DX9). There's no function that will generate a .dds from an array of values that I know of.
