# DX11 D3D11DeviceContext::DrawIndexed Does'nt Draw anything

## 8 posts in this topic

my program is Directx Program that draws a container cube within it smaller cubes....these smaller cubes fall by time i hope you understand what i mean...

The program isn't complete yet ...it should draws the container only ....but it draws nothing ...only the background color is visible... i only included what i think is needed ...

this is the routines that initialize the program

bool Game::init(HINSTANCE hinst,HWND _hw){
Directx11 ::init(hinst , _hw);
}


Directx11::init()

bool Directx11::init(HINSTANCE hinst,HWND hw){
_hinst=hinst;_hwnd=hw;

GetClientRect(_hwnd,&rc);

this is the routine that creates the container and the smaller cubes meshes

{
inds[k]=Build.indices[i];
}
for (UINT i = 0; i < piese_ind_count; i++ , k++)

return true;
}


SetBuild() Prepare the matrices inside the container for the smaller cubes ....i didnt program it to draw the smaller cubes yet

and this the function that draws the scene

void Game::Render(){
d3dDeviceContext->ClearRenderTargetView(RenderTarget,reinterpret_cast <const float*> (&Colors::LightSteelBlue));
d3dDeviceContext->ClearDepthStencilView(depth,D3D11_CLEAR_DEPTH | D3D11_CLEAR_STENCIL,1.0f,0);

d3dDeviceContext-> IASetInputLayout(_layout);
d3dDeviceContext-> IASetPrimitiveTopology(D3D10_PRIMITIVE_TOPOLOGY_TRIANGLELIST);
d3dDeviceContext->IASetIndexBuffer(indices,DXGI_FORMAT_R32_UINT,0);
UINT strides=sizeof(Vertex),off=0;
d3dDeviceContext->IASetVertexBuffers(0,1,&vertices,&strides,&off);

D3DX11_TECHNIQUE_DESC des;
Tech->GetDesc(&des);Floor * Lookup;
std::vector<XMFLOAT4X4> filled;
XMMATRIX vp = V * P;XMMATRIX wvp;XMFLOAT4X4 fwvp;
for (UINT i = 0; i < des.Passes; i++)
{
XMStoreFloat4x4(&fwvp,wvp);
HR(Tech->GetPassByIndex(i)->Apply(0,d3dDeviceContext));
d3dDeviceContext->DrawIndexed(build_ind_count,build_ind_index,build_vers_index);

UINT r1=B.GetSize(),r2=filled.size();
for (UINT j = 0; j < r1; j++)
{
Lookup = &B.Memory[j];
for (UINT r = 0; r < Lookup->filledindeces.size(); r++)
{
filled.push_back(Lookup->Pieces[Lookup->filledindeces[r]]);
}
}
for (UINT j = 0; j < r2; j++)
{
Tech->GetPassByIndex(i)->Apply(0,d3dDeviceContext);
d3dDeviceContext->DrawIndexed(piese_ind_count,piese_ind_index,piese_vers_index);
}
}
HR(swapchain->Present(0,0));
}

yes i am clearing the depth stencil buffer each frame is there any problem?...

my rasterizer state  is setted on CULL_MODE_FRONT .....because i want to see what in the container.....

i can't use PIX it always crashes even with the correctly working programs (i am using win7)..... i checked camera and matrices multiple Times and i even increased the Length of camera radius

but stills nothing ...

You have some unusual code snippets. Are these what you intend?

UINT strides=sizeof(Vertex),off=0;
// did you mean
// UINT off = 0;
...
Tech->GetDesc(&des);Floor * Lookup; // "Floor * Lookup" does nothing

As Jason Z mentioned, have you checked that the geometry you create is within the view volume?

my rasterizer state  is setted on CULL_MODE_FRONT

Have you defined CULL_MODE_FRONT yourself, or do you intend D3D11_CULL_FRONT?

I would suggest you try rendering the cube normally - i.e., D3D11_CULL_BACK - and get that working.

yes i mean off =0, Lookup is variable to lookup the matrices of the smaller cubes there is no smaller cubes now so it should do nothing

I would suggest you try rendering the cube normally - i.e., D3D11_CULL_BACK - and get that working.

i set it to the default rasterizer state (RSSetState(0)) also changed the camera position to (0.0,0.0,0.0) and and the focus to (15.0,15.0,15.0) and radius to 50.0

is there anything else beside what jason said that can fail drawing ...i am new to this so there might be some deep details i missed...thanks

Thanks Jason Z ..and Buckeye

it is solved ....The Problem is simply

in GeoBuild() (Mentioned in the Post )

std::vector<UINT> inds(piese_ind_count + build_ind_count); //cause of the bug
std::vector<UINT> inds                                     //works fine


i dont know why and how but i guess std::vector constructor fills its element by some values which corrupt the index buffer....

Just  a follow up, if you pass an integer to the std::vector constructor, it will create a vector with that many elements in it that are default constructed if you don't pass a second value.  This is called the 'fill' constructor.  Since UINT doesn't have a default constructor mechanism, you end up with the contents of memory in your vector.

Since UINT doesn't have a default constructor mechanism, you end up with the contents of memory in your vector.

The parameter is declared as const value_type& val = value_type(), so it will perform zero initialization for built-in types:

int a; // garbage
int b = int(); // zero initialized

Good call - I just tried it out and you are 100% correct.  I wonder how the OP was getting garbage in the vector then... I suppose if he has all 0's in the index buffer, and then pushes back all of his indices, it would look like a ton of senseless indices, but I don't know...

Thanks for the correction.

• Hi Guys,
I am just wondering if it is possible to acquire the address of the backbuffer if an API (based on DX11) only exposes the 'device' and 'context' pointers?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated

• bool InitDirect3D::Init() { if (!D3DApp::Init()) { return false; } //Additional Initialization //Disable Alt+Enter Fullscreen Toggle shortkey IDXGIFactory* factory; CreateDXGIFactory(__uuidof(IDXGIFactory), reinterpret_cast<void**>(&factory)); factory->MakeWindowAssociation(mhWindow, DXGI_MWA_NO_WINDOW_CHANGES); factory->Release(); return true; }
As stated on the title and displayed on the code above, regardless of it Alt+Enter still takes effect...
I recall something from the book during the swapChain creation, where in order to create it one has to use the same factory used to create the ID3D11Device, therefore I tested and indeed using that same factory indeed it work.
How is that one particular factory related to my window and how come the MakeWindowAssociation won't take effect with a newly created factory?
Also what's even the point of being able to create this Factories if they won't work,?(except from that one associated with the ID3D11Device)
• By ProfL
Can anyone recommend a wrapper for Direct3D 11 that is similarly simple to use as SFML? I don't need all the image formats etc. BUT I want a simple way to open a window, allocate a texture, buffer, shader.

• Q1:
Since there is no more fixed pipeline rendering in DX11, for every part of rendering in DX11, do I need to create a brand-new vertex shader and pixel shader... or at least I have to find one relevant online. If you work on skinned meshes and other effects originally worked in DX9 fixed pipeline, do I have to rework everything by now?

Q2:
For assimp, if it originally was designed for DX9, like it is coupled to a DX9 device for creating meshes and materials etc. Do I have to add in the DX11 device in the assimp, or can I just leave the assimp to remain in DX9 and after the meshes are loaded, I just convert the vertex buffers and index buffers into DX11 buffers?
Thanks
Jack

• This header is mentioned in the book I'm reading but there is no documentation on msdn... Is it like an... outdated and abandoned header?
If so, what's the current default/recomended library for handling errors with directX?
