I'm making a blue screen of death simulator. I need a way to force the program to open full screen or it will not really work. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Is this a dream?

If you are making a proper windows program (not console) you can make window fullscreen, but I think the only way is to use directX (is there a way to do it in winAPI? if anyone knows, I'm interested too)

this is a line from one directX demo I made some time ago:


DDSCL_EXCLUSIVE | DDSCL_FULLSCREEN : these make the window fullscreen and allow no other programs to use the display.

Complete directX initialization is too long thing to post here but check any tutorial. Usually first thing explained is how to get a fullscreen display.

Or you can check out openGL for the same thing
