Control to World coordinate...

Recommended Posts

The device already transforms the world coordinates into the windows control coordinate. But what if I want to transform a coordinate from the 2d control to 3d world space? Thanks, Devin

A 2D coordinate (such as a mouse click location) actually generates a "ray" in 3D space - effectively an infinite number of points along a defined line from the near plane to the far plane.

You can use the D3DXVec3Unproject() function to take the various matrices and coordinates and produce a ray iirc.
