How do I get total Vertices from a mesh????

Recommended Posts

Hi, i would like to know how to get the total number of vertices within a particular mesh. Is there a specific function for this or do i have to access the vertex info? Thanks.

Hi the FireSoul,
Depending on if you use Managed DirectX or DirectX

[The Methods/Functions]
Native DirectX
ID3DXMesh::GetNumVertices Method : Retrieves the number of vertices in the mesh.
Managed DirectX
BaseMesh.NumberVertices Property : Retrieves the number of vertices in a mesh.

If you have any more questions please don't hestitate to ask.

Cheers!, i just thought it would be easier to ask here than to go searching for half an hour :).

Thanks again.

O yea, and its just normal direct x ( not managed).

hi,

you don't need half an hour, just open the SDK docs at ID3DXMesh. I did this right now :)
GetFVF if probably what you need now.
