Wait for Monitor

Wait for Monitor

Is there a function/way of some kind to be able to tell when a computer monitor has completed a draw to its surface?  For example, if I wanted to determine the response time of it?

RE: Wait for Monitor

are you refering to Vsync or do you mean when the graphic card has finished a drawing order?

RE: Wait for Monitor

When the graphic card has finished the draw order and the picture/whatever is up on the screen.  Say I do the order to draw a bitmap to the computer in full screen, the code to prepare it is done, and the code is issued to draw it.  I want to know if/how to know when the drawing operation is completed.

RE: Wait for Monitor

I got the chance to look into it.  VREFRESH in GetDeviceCaps gets me what I want to know.  The problem is it's for NT/2000/XP only...how would I do it within 9X?
