I have a DirectX Application which works in full screen.

For debugging purposes I want to pop up a message box with an error message.

The problem is that when the message box comes up it cant be seen unless you switch to another program then switch back to the application.

How do I minimize the application before calling the message box?

Did you tried to use WM_SIZE message with SIZE_MINIMIZED type?

Close enough, I used ShowWindow with the SW_MINIMIZE parameter.
