I know how to set render state so all my objects appear as wireframe but is there an easy way to set the color that all the edges in all the objects will be display in?

the wireframe border colors are going to be the interpolated vertex colors.
set the vertices to have the colors you want.

your vertex format may want to look something like this:


D3DXVECTOR3 position;
DWORD color;

with world coords and a color.

then when you initialize the vertex buffer, just assign the colors you want for the vertices.

pDevice->CreateVertexBuffer ( NUM_VERTICES * sizeof(CUSTOMVERTEX),
&m_pVBMask );

pVB->Lock ( 0, 0, (BYTE**) &pVertices, 0 );

pVertices[0] = CUSTOMVERTEX ( D3DXVECTOR3 ( -1.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f ), 0xffffffff );
pVertices[1] = CUSTOMVERTEX ( D3DXVECTOR3 ( -1.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f ), 0xffff0000 );
pVertices[2] = CUSTOMVERTEX ( D3DXVECTOR3 ( -1.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f ), 0xff00ff00 );
pVertices[3] = CUSTOMVERTEX ( D3DXVECTOR3 ( -1.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f ), 0xff0000ff );


(with some error checking of course, but you see how i colored the vertices differently?) hope that helps.

Actually, wireframe, lines, etc, all pay attention to your current texture stage states and textures. If you don't want textured, lit, and shaded lines, just tell D3D what you DO want.

TextureStageState's are like a little program that tells D3D what you want mixed (COLORARGn, ALPHAARGn), and how you want to mix it (COLOROP, ALPHAOP). Try something like this:

pDev->SetRenderState(D3DRS_TEXTUREFACTOR, 0xFF123456);
pDev->SetTextureStageState(0, D3DTSS_COLOROP, D3DTOP_SELECTARG1);
pDev->SetTextureStageState(0, D3DTSS_COLORARG1, D3DTA_TFACTOR);
pDev->SetTextureStageState(0, D3DTSS_ALPHAOP, D3DTOP_SELECTARG1);
pDev->SetTextureStageState(0, D3DTSS_ALPHAARG1, D3DTA_TFACTOR);

pDev->SetTextureStageState(1, D3DTSS_COLOROP, D3DTOP_DISABLE);
pDev->SetTextureStageState(1, D3DTSS_ALPHAOP, D3DTOP_DISABLE);

Which should make everything a nice blue.
