Enumerating display modes using WIN32 not DX.

Recommended Posts

Hi, I want to be able to get the name of the device and all the resolutions available of the device, using regular WIN32 methods and not DX. Then I want to be able to list these in a list box. Is there any example out there? I am doing this because I am using OGL and I don''t want to use DX.

well, you might want to look up some api functions like EnumDisplayModeSettings (anyway, something like that=)).
i was messing around with those a while ago. believe me, easier to set up a ddraw object and check for display modes. but you said you won''t use dx, so go the hard way...
just a thought: even if you find out the modes a card supports, you still don''t know if it''s 3d-capable. for example early voodoo cards only support 16-bit
