Hi, sorry I´m a newbie in DX, but I need help with a detecting triangle in T-Strip. All examples I´ve found, working with a Mesh. If I try to use D3DXIntersectTri(), then the values returned does not coresponding with e cursor position on the screen. If somebody knows how to detect triangle(with its vertices position coords) created with DrawPrimitive(), plz help. Thx

Hey-

If you look at the pick sample that comes with the DirectX sdk, there is a function called "IntersectTriangle."

If you give this function your orig and direction vectors and the three vertices of your triangle, then it will tell you if there is an intersection.

Hope this helps-

bmoberly has got it right...

Furthermore, I''d say than when you''ve managed to use the pick code to detect a simple triangle with an identity world transform, you''ll want to move it around... And then the pick code might give you some troubles. There''s a bit of fancy matrix footwork to manage.

You might want to have a look at http://www.mvps.org/directx/indexes/direct3d_articles.htm His technical articles involve one improving on the ''pick'' program. I haven''t read it but it''s likely you''ll learn something.
