DirectX Syntax

Recommended Posts

Okay. I was wondering if as versions of DirectX increase, does the syntax change? The tutorials on this site for begginers on DirectDraw are older, and i want to know if the syntax is the same with DX 9.0. Thank you. Scott

The DirectDraw7 tutorials should still work fine for DX9. The trick comes with DD6 and 5 tutorials that are laying around. DD7 being the final real version of DD kinda tied up all the loose ends and you should use the data types LPDIRECTDRAWSURFACE7 and such. Of course you can still use DirectDraw 5 and 6, but it would be wiser to use 7 and just parrellel what you learn from the 5/6 tutorials into DD7 syntax.
