I'd like to write an application that can move a graphics card from independent mode into stretched mode. Is there some sort of SDK for Nvidia, ATI or matrox cards that would allow one to do this?

If you remember, stretched mode makes 2 monitors look like 1 gigantic monitor to Windows. Independent mode, they look like 2 separate monitors. I'd like to write a program to move back and fourth.

I've never heard about "stretched mode" but maybe you meant "multiple monitor support". There is general Windows API, not only for specific video card:

There's also some multimonitor support in DirectX.

Unterfortunately I've no experiance with this API
