Hi Experts,

Does anyone know of a .NET class which hosts an OpenGL window for C#?  I'll be using Visual C# .NET 2008.

Thank you!
Mike

Hi mac-will, just wondering - have you used this?  Is it ready for a commercial app?

Hi thready,

I tried it quickly but I have never used it for anything 'official'.  I can't tell you if it is ready for commercial applications, maybe check with the authors?

What type of application?  I'd be surprised if a .NET OpenGL solution is the best solution for many commercial applications.

It's a medical app - to view bones moving in real time with receptors, etc...  Do you think .NET is too slow for this?

It's not that .NET is slow it is more that it is not well suited to OpenGL. I'm sure some would disagree with that comment but generally .NET (other than the Microsoft gaming environment) does not have good support for 3D.

For an application like you mention it may be alright, give it a test shot.

I have used OpenGL with MFC successfully several times.

Good Luck
