I believe you can do so by setting the window handle created by SFML to the externalWindowHandle key in miscParams, passed in the Ogre::Root::createRenderWindow() method. It's not something I've done personally, and I found at least one Ogre forum thread where the OP was trying to do something similar and ended up quitting in frustration, so I don't know how well-supported using an external handle is. But if SFML provides something you absolutely can not live without, for whatever reason, then it might be worth a try. Edited by JTippetts
