I'm programming a windowed 3D app for school. I need to resize my Direct3D device whenever the window size changes and this works fine with normal resizing, but not when maximizing the window. I have the following code in my message loop to detect if a maximize occured:

if(wParam == SC_MAXIMIZE)
//Call Resize device function which works

This does detect if a maximize occured because if I call PostQuitMessage() inside the if statement it quits when I maximize. But it doesn't however resize my window properly. I have a feeling that this message is placed in the queue before windows updates the client area for the HWND. Does anyone have a solution to this problem?
