I need to create a program that can render using directX, but I still need drop down menus, radio buttons, etc. Whats the easiest way to do this? Thanks Edit: I'll just render to my main window and pop up a separate dialog box for the settings. [Edited by - M4573R on May 18, 2009 10:24:15 PM]

You can download GUI libraries.

I know that DirectX SDK examples have their own interface controls,
so you could try looking at the source code for the examples and try working from there.

Otherwise you can search "GUI Library DirectX" on your favorite search engine,
Just did a quick search on google and found this:

http://www.codeproject.com/KB/directx/OdysseyUI.aspx

The code looks fairly straightforward, I'm actually thinking about trying it myself.

Hope that helps!

You can just render to an object inside the window instead of all the window. Its simple and better if you need an app that should use both DirectX and GUI controls.
