D3D rendering in a Static ?

Hello

I'm working on a viewer and so I want to render my world inside my MFC Dialog-Based Application
I don't want to use any DDutil.h nor a D3Dapp.
It seems that all rendering is done but , even if I created my D3D with the Hwnd of the Static I use as rendering surface...
I simply don't understand...

Please Help me !

You can read about the splitter in MSDN. I haven't got that one directly in my head. I usually just write for normal apps.

Ok , I'll try to explain it more :

I want to view my 3D world in my MFC Dialog based application without creating a ne window
So I use a Picture Control ( ID= ID_PREV_WINDOW) and I create my D3D device pointer(dx) using that control as a "focus window" ( rect = LPRECT of the Picture Control )

CreateDevice( D3DADAPTER_DEFAULT, D3DDEVTYPE_HAL,GetDlgItem(ID_PREV_WINDOW)->GetSafeHwnd(),
                                  D3DCREATE_HARDWARE_VERTEXPROCESSING,
                                  &params, &lpd3ddev );

it seems that is works ( return 0 ) but I still can't view anything in my Picture Control

I you want me to explain you something more , just tell me !

But there is quite a few things more to do for rendering to something. Have you got you coordinates right ? The rendering RECT ?

Do you have all your geometri set up? Have you created a vertex buffer?

Are you clearing you device before BeginScene?

Do you loop to render every frame?

to Joachimc

Yes all my geometry is ok

Yes I clear my device  : I clear it with a blue color that doesn't appear on my static

Yes I loop my render

AS for my Rendering Rect , it may be that...
I don't know how to pass it to DirectX...
I just set the resolution that's all...

Can u tell me more about it ?

So what you are saying is that if you do it like a normal DX app not MFC everything works?

For the width and height you set that in the D3DPRESENT_PARAMETERS d3dpp;
d3dpp.BackBufferHeight
d3dpp.BackBufferWidth

And by the way why would you want to render to a picture control ?

First
the D3D parameters are right i've already done it

Then
I want to render my world in the same window as my application
So if u have another solution to render into a small part of my application then tell me
pleazz!!!!!!

Ok, But isn't that just what you have MFC for to split the window into sub parts that you can render to ?

Ok, I think you are right
It's just what i'm trying to do
I don't know much about MFC and a friend tell me to try to render in a Static

But if you can, tell me how to split my MFC Dialog-Based Application into sub parts I can render to ?
