I m trying to implement a simple UI. Added a list box using dxut, tried to remove an item using the RemoveItemByText method, nothing happens, looked at the source, the function is empty. The removeItem(), removes the item but if yu try to click in the on the list box the application crashes. Did microsoft forgot to test the UI before releasing it? or just that nobody uses it?

Which version of the SDK are you using? From what I gather the DXUT framework is one of the more "fluid" parts - so it may well be that the version you have has since been improved.

People do use DXUT, but I've read quite a few references to people dropping the UI components and just use the framework part. DXUT handles the windows messages and application lifecycle correctly so its quite nice to re-use just that...

As far as the crash situation goes, if you can put together a repro on the latest SDK then I'd get it sent off to the powers that be: directx@microsoft.com. However, being open-source you might want to flex your debugging muscles - I've dug into DXUT code and beaten it with a stick until it does what I want [smile]

I think there is only one component in the dxut that is really awesome and that is the core, because it implements and easy way to setup your device in a generic way.
And the second best part is the ui.

i m using DX SDK (August 2006) so this should be up to date.
releasing a UI with missing functions is not pretty cool.
