Viewing framerate directx

Recommended Posts

I dont understand what the string pointer, is to be, to display my framerate. Using ID3DXFONT::DrawText Looking around, i think it has something to do with the createDevice D3DPRESENT_PARAMETERS, but i'm not sure what. Thanks.
#include <string>

static RECT myRect; SetRect(&myRect, 0, 0, 640, 480); 

//Pointer is just psuedo for what is ment to be there..
int stringLength = pointer.length();

int DrawText(NULL,
  &pointer,
  stringLength,
  &myRect,
  DT_LEFT,
  D3DCOLOR_RGBA(255,255,255,255));

It returns a null terminated C string. Essentially it just returns a pointer to the buffer the string encapsulates. Depending on the length of the string, this either resides within the string object itself, or is allocated later on.
