I am using c++ and directx9 to draw a single space ship sprite to the screen.I am kind of stuck.here is some of my code.
[font="Consolas"][color="#0000ff"][font="Consolas"][color="#0000ff"][font="Consolas"][color="#0000ff"]void[/font][/font][/font][font="Consolas"][font="Consolas"] render_frame([/font][/font][font="Consolas"][color="#0000ff"][font="Consolas"][color="#0000ff"][font="Consolas"][color="#0000ff"]void[/font][/font][/font][font="Consolas"][font="Consolas"])


[/font][/font][font="Consolas"][color="#008000"][font="Consolas"][color="#008000"][font="Consolas"][color="#008000"]// clear the window to a deep blue

[/font][/font][/font][font="Consolas"][font="Consolas"]d3ddev->Clear(0, NULL, D3DCLEAR_TARGET, D3DCOLOR_XRGB(0, 0, 0), 1.0f, 0);

d3ddev->BeginScene(); [/font][/font][font="Consolas"][color="#008000"][font="Consolas"][color="#008000"][font="Consolas"][color="#008000"]// begins the 3D scene


spriteobj -> Begin(D3DXSPRITE_ALPHABLEND);

RECT rct;

rct.left = 0;

rct.right = 48;

rct.top = 0;

rct.bottom = 50;

spriteobj -> Draw(texture,&rct,NULL,NULL,0xFFFFFFFF);

[/font][/font][font="Consolas"][color="#008000"][font="Consolas"][color="#008000"][font="Consolas"][color="#008000"]// do 3D rendering on the back buffer here

[/font][/font][/font][font="Consolas"][font="Consolas"]spriteobj -> End();

d3ddev->EndScene(); [/font][/font][font="Consolas"][color="#008000"][font="Consolas"][color="#008000"][font="Consolas"][color="#008000"]// ends the 3D scene

[/font][/font][/font][font="Consolas"][font="Consolas"]d3ddev->Present(NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL); [/font][/font][font="Consolas"][color="#008000"][font="Consolas"][color="#008000"][font="Consolas"][color="#008000"]// displays the created frame on the screen


any help would be appreciated.?

If I remember correctly, there is a renderer block code that has to keep flipping or refreshing the graphics buffer because Direct Graphics and OpenGL have the same style of rendering. If it is done one time then I think it renders one time only. Try to make your little sprite move in a position and render it in each frame.
