WM_ blank white ?

What WM_ message blanks the window client area to white?
I should maybe to intercept it, or is it something else?

I am using ddraw and sometimes after drawing to the surface
i get blank white result, both in normal and fullscreen mode.
In normal mode I have noticed that some type of redrawing of
all windows occurs before the contents of my window goes blank.

These are the messages I allready intercept:

case WM_PAINT:
case WM_SIZE:
case WM_MOVE:

    I think i figured it out.
    The message is WM_ERASEBKGND .
    And I just do this in WndProc:

    return 0;

    It is under Painting and Drawing Messages
    in MSDN.
