Hi together! I am successfully programing small 3d games with the MFC and opengl (My IDE is V++ vers.6.0 as I don't like the new one). I get positive answer that my hardware supports antialising but I cannot activate it as for that reason the existing renderview would have to be destroyed and newly activated with the new Pixelformat. In a normal win32 program all works fine as there it is easy to destroy the initial window and then create a new one incl. GL_MULTISAMPLE_ARB support. Has somebody a solution how to do the same in a MFC program? A sample program would be highly appreciated....

I solved the problem in the meantime:
1. Made a small program which requests the pixelformat supporting antialising
2. Then the pixelformat identifier ist put to the clipboard
3. The small program opens the MFC program
4. In the MFC program i get the pixelformat identifier from the clipboard
5. The MFC program creates the render context with the identifier from the clipboard
6. the small program empites the clipboard and exits.

Maybe this solution is of help to somebody.....
