Hi guys... I am developing a Graphic Editor in VC7++ to edit some models for a DX7 Engine... I am dealing now with DDS textures... of course I can use and render them in the engine viewport and during editing... but I would like to create a Dialog Window where the DDSs are shown, so that the user can choose which one to use ( not to edit it )... Of course, seems the only graphical functions I found in Windows SDK, without creating usual DirectDrawSurfaces, are dealing BMPs... There is any code around, or any lib, or something to load and show a DDS on a Dialog Window...? tnx for any Info/help [R]ed

You could look at the source code for DXTex: Utilities\Source\dxtex and see how they present it in the GUI.

I'd imagine that getting DirectDraw/Direct3D to decode it and then use one of the GetDC() type functions would be the simplest.
