either below is ok: uint3 foo = tex.SampleLevel(samp, float3(0, 0, 0), 0); uint3 foo = tex.SampleLevel(samp, float2(0, 0), 0); so SampleLevel has 3 parameters: (sampler s, float location, level L), as opposed to the 2 parameters: (sampler s, float location). //////////////////// Hi, in sdk, location is "float2 for a Texture2D", while "This function is similar to sample except that it uses the LOD level (in the last component of the location parameter) to choose the mipmap level. For example, a 2D texture uses the first two components for uv coordinates and the third component for the mipmap level." I don't know how to use it, anyway would "error X3088: SampleLevel method of object Texture2D does not take these arguments" now I have to walk around by Sample(), which is slower since mipmap. Any suggestions? thanks! [Edited by - yk_cadcg on May 13, 2007 11:45:14 PM]

Thank you very much!
in my code, either line below gets error I mentioned:

uint3 foo = tex.SampleLevel(samp, float3(0, 0, 0));
uint3 foo = tex.SampleLevel(samp, float2(0, 0));


Texture2D <uint3> tex;
SamplerState samp
AddressU = Clamp;
AddressV = Clamp;

this samp is shared by all my textures of different formats. is it ok?
and tex-related codes outside the shader are:

ID3D10Texture2D* ptex = NULL;
descTex.Width = texW;
descTex.Height = texH;
descTex.MipLevels = 1;
descTex.ArraySize = 1;
descTex.Format = DXGI_FORMAT_R32G32B32_UINT;
descTex.SampleDesc.Count = 1;
descTex.SampleDesc.Quality = 0;
descTex.Usage = D3D10_USAGE_DYNAMIC;
descTex.BindFlags = D3D10_BIND_SHADER_RESOURCE;
descTex.CPUAccessFlags = D3D10_CPU_ACCESS_WRITE;
descTex.MiscFlags = 0;
V(g_pd3dDevice->CreateTexture2D(&descTex, NULL, &ptex));

Thank you very much!!!

btw, may I ask another question: how to read depth-buffer in ps? I seem to have heard that dx could read zbuffer.
Is it by use
ID3D10Texture2D* pTexDepth and ID3D10DepthStencilView, and in shader, just access it as texture? That seems weird, since I read the depth and meantime write it..
I can't
PS_OUTPUT ps(depth: SV_Depth)
it spits error for vs's lack of depth signature. Thanks!

What is your actual code for using SampleLevel()?
