Hello,

     SlimDX::Color4 bkcolor( 255.0f, 65.0f, 255.0f, 25.0f );    
     sl_device->Clear( SlimDX::Direct3D9::ClearFlags::All, bkcolor, 1.0f, 0 ); 
 
    sl_device->BeginScene(); 
 
     ... etc.... 
 
thanks

Hello, this should help:

 

        sl_device->Clear( ClearFlags::Target | ClearFlags::ZBuffer, 0xffff0000 , 1.0f, 0);

It does indeed fail. Actually, SlimDX throws an exception on failing calls (Configuration.ThrowOnError is enabled by default). Did you disable it ?
 
Also, I already recommended the The DirectX Debug Runtime. It will (usually) tell you exactly what went wrong. If you can't get those messages in Visual Studio, use DebugView (linked to in that article).Use it!
