Hello.
    What you actually want to do is to make a windowed DirectX application. You should first learn DirectDraw which is the way Windows contact the hardware and draw on the screen. Direct3D is based on DirectDraw. I dont wish to promote any sales of a book that will be released in November but if you really want to learn to program DirectX with MFC you should buy it. Its name is 'DirectX Complete'. You can order it from www.amazon.com.
Books to create DirectX applications using MFC arent many...

Regards,
Yiannis
