OpenGL How use Direct3D in a winforms app with C++/CLI?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone i try to find in google but nothing about this
I want use directX in the windows forms. any idea?
To create a map editor with simple ui, because in win32 i have no idea to create toolbar for the window even i search in google but i cant find nothing. mainly i want use the OpenGL for windows forms but nothing

The idea is create a Canvas that support OpenGL and/or DirectX in both languages, C# and C++/CLI but i dont know how do it

Here is how I created a windows toolbar
You need a bmp you have declared in a menu.rc file to reference to IDB_BITMAP1 my buttons in that bitmap were 15x15
[code]
HWND ToolBar = NULL;
void CreateToolWindow()
{
const int Numbuttons = 16;

TBBUTTON tbb[Numbuttons];
TBADDBITMAP tbab;



tbab.hInst = GetModuleHandle(0);
//tbab.nID = IDB_STD_SMALL_COLOR;
tbab.nID = IDB_BITMAP1;
ToolBar = CreateWindowEx(NULL,TOOLBARCLASSNAME, 0, WS_CHILD,0, 0, 0, 0,MyhWnd, reinterpret_cast<HMENU>(IDR_MENU1),GetModuleHandle(0), 0);

If you're using C++/CLI, you can use WinForms to design your editors various dialogs instead of having to resort to mucking around in the Windows API.

      Before using void glBindImageTexture(    GLuint unit, GLuint texture, GLint level, GLboolean layered, GLint layer, GLenum access, GLenum format), does need to make sure that texture is completeness.

      hi guys, 
      are there any books, link online or any other resources that discusses on how to build special effects such as magic, lightning, etc. in OpenGL? i mean, yeah most of them are using particles but im looking for resources specifically on how to manipulate the particles to look like an effect that can be use for games,. i did fire particle before, and I want to learn how to do the other 'magic' as well.
      Like are there one book or link(cant find in google) that atleast featured how to make different particle effects in OpenGL (or DirectX)? If there is no one stop shop for it, maybe ill just look for some tips on how to make a particle engine that is flexible enough to enable me to design different effects/magic 
      let me know if you guys have recommendations.
      Thank you in advance!

      How do we rotate the camera around x axis 360 degrees, without having the strange effect as in my video below? 
      Mine behaves exactly the same way spherical coordinates would, I'm using euler angles.
      Tried googling, but couldn't find a proper answer, guessing I don't know what exactly to google for, googled 'rotate 360 around x axis', got no proper answers.

      The video shows the difference between blender and my rotation:

      I've had a Google around for this but haven't yet found some solid advice. There is a lot of "it depends", but I'm not sure on what.
      My question is what's a good rule of thumb to follow when it comes to creating/using VBOs & VAOs? As in, when should I use multiple or when should I not? My understanding so far is that if I need a new VBO, then I need a new VAO. So when it comes to rendering multiple objects I can either:
      * make lots of VAO/VBO pairs and flip through them to render different objects, or
      * make one big VBO and jump around its memory to render different objects. 
      I also understand that if I need to render objects with different vertex attributes, then a new VAO is necessary in this case.
      If that "it depends" really is quite variable, what's best for a beginner with OpenGL, assuming that better approaches can be learnt later with better understanding?

      Hello all,
       
      On my Windows 7 x64 machine I wrote the code below on VS 2017 and ran it.
      #include <glad/glad.h>  #include <GLFW/glfw3.h> #include <std_lib_facilities_4.h> using namespace std; void framebuffer_size_callback(GLFWwindow* window , int width, int height) {     glViewport(0, 0, width, height); } //****************************** void processInput(GLFWwindow* window) {     if (glfwGetKey(window, GLFW_KEY_ESCAPE) == GLFW_PRESS)         glfwSetWindowShouldClose(window, true); } //********************************* int main() {     glfwInit();     glfwWindowHint(GLFW_CONTEXT_VERSION_MAJOR, 3);     glfwWindowHint(GLFW_CONTEXT_VERSION_MINOR, 3);     glfwWindowHint(GLFW_OPENGL_PROFILE, GLFW_OPENGL_CORE_PROFILE);     //glfwWindowHint(GLFW_OPENGL_FORWARD_COMPAT, GL_TRUE);     GLFWwindow* window = glfwCreateWindow(800, 600, "LearnOpenGL", nullptr, nullptr);     if (window == nullptr)     {         cout << "Failed to create GLFW window" << endl;         glfwTerminate();         return -1;     }     glfwMakeContextCurrent(window);     if (!gladLoadGLLoader((GLADloadproc)glfwGetProcAddress))     {         cout << "Failed to initialize GLAD" << endl;         return -1;     }     glViewport(0, 0, 600, 480);     glfwSetFramebufferSizeCallback(window, framebuffer_size_callback);     glClearColor(0.2f, 0.3f, 0.3f, 1.0f);     glClear(GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT);     while (!glfwWindowShouldClose(window))     {         processInput(window);         glfwSwapBuffers(window);         glfwPollEvents();     }     glfwTerminate();     return 0; }  
      The result should be a fixed dark green-blueish color as the end of here. But the color of my window turns from black to green-blueish repeatedly in high speed! I thought it might be a problem with my Graphics card driver but I've updated it and it's: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti.
      What is the problem and how to solve it please?
