My previous DirectX question dealt with going to fullscreen (DDSCL_FULLSCREEN | DDSCL_EXCLUSIVE) and how the window appears and is active even after drawing over it. I have gotten rid of part of this problem by setting the Menu to NULL (SetMenu command). This has made the menu disappear (a good thing) and now I have a few more problems. The maximize, minimize, and close button on the upper right hand part of the window are still active, and if you move your mouse pointer to the edge of the window, it still allows you to resize. How do I inactivate all of these? I want to draw over this window and use this screen area as though I were programming a DOS game... a blank screen that I can draw images onto (without my mouse detecting hidden windows options). Please help!
