Using DirectDraw7, I am having some problems with dialog boxes not showing up. In Window Mode, the dialog box works perfectly, however in fullscreen exclusive mode, the dialog box gets covered up every time I draw something on the screen. How do I keep the dialog box on top of the screen even when I draw stuff? I am using a Modal Dialog box, I could change it to modeless, but I would rather not. The box serves to get the players name for a hiscore. Thanks ... Eyez

Make sure the dialog box keeps the focus. And also create it using the IDirectDraw7 object.

There''s a function which is called something like FlipToGDISurface() or something like that. Try to call that before displaying the dialog box.
