managed directx suggestions?

Hi all, I'm totally new to DirectX but I'd need to learn some basics. I do
not need all the bells & whistles, I just require a fast display of huge 2D
images (typically JPEG photos or maps) in a c-sharp windows forms
application; further, I should display "layered" semitransparent images onto
the base image with some filtering, and optionally draw on the fly some text
labels onto some externally defined positions in the images. Could anyone
point me to tutorials, books, sample code or any other useful resource to
let me learn what I need to accomplish all this with managed DirectX?

Thanks guys!

There are a lot of C# samples in the DirectX SDK 9c which you can download
from MSDN.

I hope this helps,

There is also a newsgroup microsoft.publi c.win32.program mer.directx.man aged
where you may find some useful information

The Microsoft update page scans my computer which has Windos XP Home Edition. The website recommends installing both DirectX 9.0A end-user runtime and Managed DirectX.

First of all, sorry for the cross-post. Seems like there should be a managed directx newsgroup. I'm trying to open the following sample application that comes with the DirectX SDK. C:\DXSDK\Samples\C#\AudioVideo\Bin\csAVPlayer.exe It will not play some of the samples shipped with the SDK. It either completey hangs the application (and I have to use Windows Task Manager to kill it) or sometimes it displays an error message. Below...

This is probably not the most relevant NG for this topic, but if someone could point me to a more relevant NG I would be forever grateful. I am having some issues with the Managed DirectX AudioVideoPlayer namespace. All I am trying to do is play a video file on a secondary video device in full screen. However, as soon as the form on the secondary video looses focus, or as it would seem, the player sets Video.Fullscreen to false. I tried...

This problem has been bugging me for a bit now: I recently purchased Visual C# 2003 Standard and installed the DirectX 9 SDK (Summer 2004), and got along fairly well looking over the samples and such, but no matter what I try I cannot reference the DirectX assemblies through the Add Reference dialog (I have them copied to another folder on my computer- they're also in 'C:\Windows\assembly\GAC\Microsoft.DirectX*\v*\' , but after reading for...

Hi to all, I would just like to ask a simple question... Could Managed DirectX 9 (SDK Summer 2004) be used in MVC++ 2003? I ask this question coz, I get an error when using Managed DirectX in MVC++. My routine is very basic, I tend to create a device object using managed directX and im getting a compiler error: error C3635: 'Microsoft.DirectX.PrivateImplementationDetails::IDirect3DDevice9': undefined

Hi, A friend of mine is in the process of building a 3d game engine using native DirectX in C++. I would like to contribute to the development of an editor for this engine, but I would prefer to develop it in C#. We've discussed the possibility of creating a COM-based interface to the engine that the editor could use from C#, and I think that would work well for most tasks. However, I'm not quite sure how I would go about developing a...

Hi, Can anyone recommend any decent .NET UI libraries that work Managed DirectX? Preferably with C# source available, but this isn't a must. I'm currently checking out a lib called 'MCDX', which looks relatively comprehensive at first glance. Any other suggestions would be very welcome.
