Hi, I must render an area in DirectX. This area is described by a list of points, these points build a line around the area. But how can I devide the area in triangles? Thanks a lot, Cassio

A triangle fan, maybe?
Can D3D draw triangle fans given a list of points?

Yes, if you draw with D3DPT_TRIANGLEFAN primitive type parameter.
However, this is usually not as efficient as drawing indexed triangle lists or strips.

EDIT: See "Triangle fans" subject in the sdk.
