[SlimDX] Render solid 2D text
06 May 2010  02:51 AM
Hello everybody,
I am wondering if it is possible to render solid 2D text using a SlimDX.Direct3D9.Sprite and a SlimDX.Direct3D9.Font.
Basically this is what i am doing:
text, rect, format and color are parameters of my method.
Unfortunately I only get a solid black rectangle.
Is it possible to draw black text with a white background?
Any help is appreciated!
Best regards
[SlimDX] Picking a point on a plane
08 February 2010  10:09 PM
Hello guys,
I am stuck on picking a certain point on a plane which is located anywhere on the z axis of my coordinate system. The coordinate system can be zoomed and rotated by using my chase camera.
Here is what it looks like:
The problem is that my coordinates seem to be messed up and I cannot figure out why.
The camera is rotated and zoomed by setting up the projection and view matrices in this way:
Rotating the camera around my coordinate system works fine.
I use this code to determine if a ray intersects a certain plane:
Sometimes it seems that the plane is located flat in the upper right corner of the screen...
Can please anybody have a look at this and tell me what is wrong?
I also tried intersection using a BoundingBox:
BoundingBox box = new BoundingBox(new Vector3(0), new Vector3(1));
It seems that the coordinates are not translated correctly.
Any help is appreciated!
Best Regards

[SlimDX] Clip planes
20 December 2009  08:10 PM
Hello everybody,
I am currently working on a 3 dimensional plot of measurement data (waterfall diagram). What I am trying to do is to implement zooming and scrolling by scaling and translating the trianglestrips. But I cannot figure out how to use the clip planes to clip the data at the left and right ends of the xaxis. Imagine a box with an edge length of 1. I only want to draw the data inside this box.
I have tried this to clip the data on the left side of the x axis:
Plane clipPlane = new Plane(new Vector3(1f, 0f, 0f), new Vector3(0.0f, 1f, 0.0f));
DX.Instance.Device.SetClipPlane(0, clipPlane);
DX.Instance.Device.SetRenderState(RenderState.ClipPlaneEnable, 0);
DX.Instance.Device.SetRenderState(RenderState.Clipping, true);
and:
Plane clipPlane = new Plane(new Vector3(1f, 0f, 0f), new Vector3(0.0f, 1f, 0.0f));
clipPlane.Normalize();
Matrix view = DX.Instance.Device.GetTransform(TransformState.View);
view.Invert();
view = Matrix.Transpose(view);
Matrix projection = DX.Instance.Device.GetTransform(TransformState.Projection);
projection.Invert();
projection = Matrix.Transpose(projection);
view *= projection;
clipPlane = Plane.Transform(clipPlane, view);
DX.Instance.Device.SetClipPlane(0, clipPlane);
DX.Instance.Device.SetRenderState(RenderState.ClipPlaneEnable, 0);
DX.Instance.Device.SetRenderState(RenderState.Clipping, true);
Maybe I misunderstood clip planes but there is no clipping at all.
Any help is appreciated!

EDIT:
I figured out that SlimDX writes the following lines to the Output window:
Direct3D9: (WARN) :Ignoring redundant SetRenderState  152
Direct3D9: (WARN) :Ignoring redundant SetRenderState  136
Could it be possible that this is a bug in SlimDX and the user clipping planes are never used? I just switched to the August Release and there the same issue occurs.
Best regards
