In order to fill all or part of a surface with a single color, you can use the IDirectDrawSurface5::Bltmethod with the DDBLT_COLORFILL flag. This technique allows you to quickly erase an area or draw a solid-colored background.

The following example fills an entire surface with the color blue, after obtaining the numerical value for blue from the pixel format:

/* It is assumed that lpDDS is a valid pointer to
an IDirectDrawSurface5 interface. */ HRESULT ddrval; DDPIXELFORMAT
ddpf; ddpf.dwSize = sizeof(ddpf); if
(SUCCEEDED(lpDSS->GetPixelFormat(&ddpf)) { DDBLTFX ddbltfx;
ddbltfx.dwSize = sizeof(ddbltfx); ddbltfx.dwFillColor =
ddpf.dwBBitMask; // Pure blue ddrval = lpDDS->Blt( NULL, //
Destination is entire surface NULL, // No source surface NULL, //
No source rectangle DDBLT_COLORFILL, &ddbltfx); switch(ddrval)
case DD_OK: . . . default: } }
