Hi! I''d like to render the OpenGL scene on the desktop, under the windows of other applications. Could you send me the code initializing rendering context on the desktop?! my email: zbuffer@viii-lo.krakow.pl P.S. I''m programming in delphi so please send a delphi code. You can also send a C++ code but I would have to translate it...

The only - acceptable - way I know of to do this, is to create an activeX control that does the rendering, embed it in a webpage, and set it as your background.

Other solutions (like using hooks and drawing your scene when the desktop window has cleared the background, but not drawn the icons yet) were horribly slow and introduced lots of flicker.
