Several HWND's = several IDirect3DDevice9?

Recommended Posts

I need to render in 4 diffrent hwnd's in my level editor. But i cant find a way in d3d to do this with the same device. So i guess i have to create one device per hwnd? That raises the question, do i need to load textures, vertexbuffers etc 4 times? Or can diffrent devices share such resources? Thanks in advance.

Look at the IDirect3DDevice9::Present() method. You can assign a HWND for use in the drawing by setting the hDestWindowOverride to something other than 0.

When you use it, you'll find that the other parameters of the Present method come in handy also - you can control the source and destination rectangles independently.

EDIT: Oh yea, the additional swap chains are also good for this type of things.
