Hello, I am trying to set some shader values in a cbuffer. Im not getting any response or values.

My code is:

cbuffer MatrixBuffer : register(b0) 
{ float4 test; 
#pragma pack(push,1) 
D3DXVECTOR4 test; 
#pragma pack(pop) 
ZeroMemory( &cbDesc, sizeof(cbDesc) );
cbDesc.Usage = D3D11_USAGE_DYNAMIC; 
cbDesc.BindFlags = D3D11_BIND_CONSTANT_BUFFER; 
cbDesc.CPUAccessFlags = D3D11_CPU_ACCESS_WRITE; 
cbDesc.ByteWidth = sizeof( CB_GBUFFER_UNPACK ); 
device->CreateBuffer( &cbDesc, NULL, &m_pGBufferUnpackCB ); 
ic->Map( m_pGBufferUnpackCB, 0, D3D11_MAP_WRITE_DISCARD, 0, &MappedResource ); 
CB_GBUFFER_UNPACK* pGBufferUnpackCB = ( CB_GBUFFER_UNPACK* )MappedResource.pData; 
pGBufferUnpackCB->test.x = 10.0f; pGBufferUnpackCB->test.y = 10.0f; pGBufferUnpackCB->test.z = 10.0f; pGBufferUnpackCB->test.w = 0.0f; 
ic->Unmap( m_pGBufferUnpackCB, 0 ); 
ic->PSSetConstantBuffers( 0, 1, &m_pGBufferUnpackCB );

What is wrong?

This should be in the shader

What is


It should be a ID3D11Buffer*

Also, why are you initializing pGBufferUnpackCB to (CB_GBUFFER_UNPACK*)MappedResource.pData, then filling it in manually the next line?

those lines should be something like:


// Fill in the data for pGBufferUnpackCB

// I don't like filling in a struct's data while Map() is called, so I moved this down two lines
ic->Map(m_pGBufferUnpackCB, 0, D3D11_MAP_WRITE_DISCARD, 0, &MappedResource);

// memcpy(destination, source, sizeof(source));
memcpy(MappedResource.pData, pGBufferUnpackCB, sizeof(pGBufferUnpackCB));
