Solid or line circle? Either way just use a textured quad. Use the DirectX SDK Texture Tool to create a .dds file that contains a texture of your circle and an alpha map that shows what parts of the texture are transparent. Load this .dds file to a texture that has the format D3DFMT_A8R8G8B8, enable alpha blending, render and *bam* you have a circle.

Here's what I've done:

//-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
//Draw a simple circle centered around the given point, using the given
//radius and color. This is in Screen Space (2D).
//-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
void Draw2DCircle(POINT pt, float radius, D3DCOLOR color, LPDIRECT3DDEVICE9 dev)
{
const int NUMPOINTS = 24;
const float PI = 3.14159;

D3DTLVERTEX Circle[NUMPOINTS + 1];
int i;
float X;
float Y;
float Theta;
float WedgeAngle; //Size of angle between two points on the circle (single wedge)

//Precompute WedgeAngle
WedgeAngle = (float)((2*PI) / NUMPOINTS);

//Set up vertices for a circle
//Used <= in the for statement to ensure last point meets first point (closed circle)
for(i=0; i<=NUMPOINTS; i++)
{
//Calculate theta for this vertex
Theta = i * WedgeAngle;

//Compute X and Y locations
X = (float)(pt.x + radius * cos(Theta));
Y = (float)(pt.y - radius * sin(Theta));

Circle = CreateD3DTLVERTEX(X, Y, 0.0f, 1.0f, color, 0.0f, 0.0f);
}

//Now draw the circle
dev->SetFVF(D3DFVF_TL);
dev->SetTexture(0, NULL);
dev->DrawPrimitiveUP(D3DPT_LINESTRIP, NUMPOINTS, &Circle[0], sizeof(Circle[0]));

}//Draw2DCircle


Edit - Coder: Used source instead of code tags. The code block is large enough, and it's much more clear now [smile]

thank for reply
Teric the program got error
i am try to draw circle with wireframe in directx 9
i want the calculation of the circle in directx

What was the error? Yes, my above code draws a wireframe circle (just the circumference, not filled) in DirectX 9.

EDIT: I just looked again, and I saw that there are a couple of things in there that need explanation. First is the CreateD3DTLVERTEX function:

struct D3DTLVERTEX
{
float fX;
float fY;
float fZ;
float fRHW;
D3DCOLOR Color;
float fU;
float fV;
};

//-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
//CreateD3DTLVERTEX--Populate a D3DTLVERTEX structure
//-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
D3DTLVERTEX CreateD3DTLVERTEX (float X, float Y, float Z, float RHW,
D3DCOLOR color, float U, float V)
{
D3DTLVERTEX v;

v.fX = X;
v.fY = Y;
v.fZ = Z;
v.fRHW = RHW;
v.Color = color;
v.fU = U;
v.fV = V;

return v;
}//CreateD3DTLVERTEX



And the other thing that needs explanation: D3DFVF_TL. This is a #define that I put together:

#define D3DFVF_TL (D3DFVF_XYZRHW | D3DFVF_DIFFUSE | D3DFVF_TEX1)

Hi Teric,
dev->SetFVF(D3DFVF_TL); /<- Only found in DX9? How about DX8?

Another question to all: How to draw Arc and Eplise in DX8 or above?
Thanks

An arc is a portion of a circle or elipse. An elipse is a circle with the radius biased in either the x- or y-axis.

To draw an elipse, bias like this:

pkVertices [iVertex].m_fX = (float) ((float)iCenterX +
((float)iRadius * xBias * cos (6.2831f*fComplete)));
pkVertices [iVertex].m_fY = (float) ((float)iCenterY +
((float)iRadius * yBias * sin (6.2831f*fComplete)));


To draw an arc, only calculate vertices in the area you need (ie, calculate positions in the loop for only a subset of those in the circle)

Or you could do everything my way and precalculate everything so you don't have to worry about the math .

look up for Bresenham's circle algorithm. You basically draw 1/4 of the circle and flip it 3 more times to complete the circle. This is the code that I wrote a while back for a class, just replace the drawpixel routine to a specific API to plot a pixel for a given screen coordinate.

attempting to post code.
[SOURCE]
//Bresenham's circle algorithm
void drawCircle ()
{
int tx,ty;
int xp = 0;
int yp = rad;
//swap(centerX,centerY);
double d = 1-rad;
while(xp <= yp)
{

tx = xp+centerX;
ty = yp+centerY;

//second octant
drawPixle(tx,ty,1);
//third octant
drawPixle(xp-2*xp+centerX,ty,1);
//7th octant
drawPixle(tx,yp-2*(yp)+centerY,1);
//first octant
drawPixle(yp+centerX,xp+centerY,1);
//8th octant
drawPixle(yp+centerX,xp-2*xp+centerY,1);
//sixth octant
drawPixle(-1*xp+centerX,-yp+centerY,1);
//4th octant
drawPixle(-yp+centerX,(-xp+2*xp)+centerY,1);
//5th octant
drawPixle(-yp+centerX,-xp+centerY,1);

//go E
if(d < 0.0)
{
d = d + 2*xp + 3;
xp = xp+1;
}
else //go SE
{
d = d + 2*xp - 2*yp + 5;
xp = xp+1;
yp = yp - 1;
}
}
}
