Hello all!
I'm trying to figure out how to create an application that will run on the desktop, similar to Snow for windows. I need it to basically act like the desktop is my mainframe, if anyone has any answers please HELP. I've looked everywhere but all have been dead ends. Thanks alot for all your help. The app will be utilizing OpenGL RC and MFC DC's without Double buffing. I'm not sure If I use direct API calls to set the desktop or create an SDI type app.
Thanks for all the help!

Hmm... you can simulate the desktop by taking a screen shot of the desktop and then BitBlt into your app.

But, this is not the real desktop, only an image.  You can get a pointer to the CWnd of the desktop using GetDesktopWindow.  From this, you can draw on it just like anything else.  If you have further questions, please ask.
