I'm not fully aware of the entire procedure required to get IDirect3DDevice9::SetScissorRect() working properly. I am creating a 2D game that requires clipping in a certain area, and I want to avoid doing the clipping myself. I believe this is the fastest method anyway (open to opinions). MSDN doesn't really discuss much on SetScissorRect, so that's why I'm posting here. I hope someone can help. Thanks!

i have found it to be much faster and easier than doing my own clipping and all gfx cards newer than 2000 seem to support it
i use it for all my GUI stuff


IDirect3DDevice9 *pDev;
///
pDev->SetRenderState(D3DRS_SCISSORTESTENABLE, TRUE); // caused me a little pain untill i figured it out
pDev->SetScissorRect(&clipRect);

// do things that require the clipping

pDev->SetRenderState(D3DRS_SCISSORTESTENABLE , FALSE);
