DirectX not working correctly.

Do you have a typical platform dependent issue you're battling with ? Ask it here. Make sure you mention your platform, compiler, and wxWidgets version.

DirectX not working correctly.

Post by xskater11x » Thu Jan 11, 2007 12:25 am

I found someone with a similar problem on GameDev and the proposed solution was to use EVT_IDLE, but it was never stated if it worked, and it did not work for me.

Mainly the problem is drawing to the actual window. I am using a basic wxFrame and passing its HWND to my DirectX class, and going at it from there, but when I start the app, instead of drawing a green screen, is stays the standard gray, which is typical of an MDI child (if i am correct?). If anyone has any ideas on how to allow DirectX to actually work on the window itself, it would be appreciated.

For reference my code for initialization is as follows:

Code: Select all

bool ClientApp::OnInit()
	//create a new window
	ClientFrame *frame = new ClientFrame("Dark Memories Client", 50, 50, 800, 600);

	//start out socket crappity
	//bind to client frame


	frame->Show ( TRUE );
	//make it the window on top of all others
	SetTopWindow ( frame );

	return TRUE;
My Event table and Idle function are as follows:

Code: Select all

BEGIN_EVENT_TABLE (ClientFrame, wxFrame)

  EVT_MENU		(MENU_EXIT, ClientFrame::OnExit)
  EVT_SOCKET	(SOCKET_ID, ClientFrame::OnSocketEvent)
  EVT_IDLE    (ClientFrame::Idle)	


void ClientFrame::Idle (wxIdleEvent &event)



If anything more is needed from me, just ask, I will gladly supply it. Also, I am willing to give out my MSN or GTalk to anyone interested in helping through chat.
