irritating directx problem

Recommended Posts

I am building a directdraw app. It is working quite nicely, but for one very frustrating thing. when I alt-esc, i get my button on the taskbar, as normal. But it is just the title of my app, without an icon. I have loaded up my hIconSm. my big icon works great. but when I minimize the app by ctrl-esc, I don''t see my small icon on the taskbar (or any other icon for that matter). I just wanted to know if this is typical. Do these icons never appear for fullscreen DirectDraw apps? I can find no documentation regarding directdraw and the way it affects your icons, so I presumed not. But i am having so much difficulty getting my small icon to work, I wanted to just check it wasn''t because directdraw dislikes small icons.

Something else I am wanting to do is allow my app to be sent to the system tray.

Is this possible with DirectDraw apps in the same way it is with ordinary windows apps? Be good to know I can actually do the thing before I start work on it.

Thanks.
