Hi I have a small minor problem . I''m trying to render a simple scene in a managed C++ windows forms window... but I am unable to find a main loop of the program, or a way to tell DX in which window to render in other words the window handle. In Win32 it''s easy, but in windows forms it''s just weird... I mean I would just like to know how to render in a windows form with managed C++. So if there are any examples or help anyone can give me please do . I will gladly take them. The DX code is unmanaged. Acording to Microsoft you can combine managed and unmanaged C++ in a same project, source file etc... So this should not be a problem. Well if someone has some info please help me. Thank you for your help.

All Windows Forms controls expose a Handle property which is the HWnd of the window. Is that what you need?

I'd hook up an event handler to the static Application::Idle event if I were you. It gets run whenever Windows doesn't have anything else to do.
