When I use the following command...

dbSetDisplayMode ( 1088, 736, 32 );

It shows my window perfectly with all sprites, background, windows border, and windows title bar. (((But))) when I use the following command...

dbSetWindowLayout (0, 0, 1);
dbSetDisplayMode ( 1088, 736, 32 );

The windows border and windows title bar are gone.
THIS IS WHAT I EXPECT AND WANT (((BUT)))

It stretches the sprites and background to the chosen pixel size PLUS the pixels of the windows title bar and windows border. The new resolution WITHOUT the windows title bar and windows border is...

1096, 763

This small stretching causes a distortion and I do NOT want it.

I want my chosen pixel size of 1088, 736 with NO STRETCHING to where the windows title bar and windows border would be. And of course NO windows title bar and NO windows border.

Any ideas how to get this to happen???

Figured it out myself. The two lines of code are backwards...

dbSetWindowLayout (0, 0, 1);
dbSetDisplayMode ( 1088, 736, 32 );

Where they should be...

dbSetDisplayMode ( 1088, 736, 32 );
dbSetWindowLayout (0, 0, 1);

The display needs set before you remove the windows title bar and windows border.

Thanks anyway forum. Maybe this information will help somebody else in the future.
