DirectX question

I am currently setting up a window with DirectDraw.  I have a "Windowed" mode that is NOT DDSCL_EXCLUSIVE and I have a menu that allow you to switch to DDSCL_EXCLUSIVE | DDSCL_FULLSCREEN mode.  When I switch to this mode, I want to blank the screen, however, the menu system is still there, you just can't see it.  How do I make it so that my mouse doesn't detect the menu structure anymore?  Do I just hide the mouse?  Or can I somehow turn off the Window structure?  I plan on having the standard Alt+Enter switch the program back to windowed mode.  Thanks in advance!

Set the menu of the active window to NULL.... then the client area should be maximized, with no menu or caption box.
