Need an SDL guru

Hi all


I am using SDL2 and I need to get the current window and context to pass to opencl.


I tried:


//get the GL rendering context
HGLRC hGLRC = wglGetCurrentContext();
//get the device context
HDC hDC = wglGetCurrentDC();
Doesnt work, visual studio says cant read memory.
I then tried:
gContext = SDL_GL_GetCurrentContext();
gWindow = SDL_GL_GetCurrentWindow();
Causes opencl to bug out.
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Tried this too, still no luck:

SDL_SysWMinfo sysWindow; 


SDL_bool f = SDL_GetWindowWMInfo(gWindow, &sysWindow);
printf("SDL_Init failed: %s\n", SDL_GetError());

hDC = sysWindow.info.win.hdc;
hGLRC = sysWindow.info.win.window;
