dotnet and opengl

P: n/a
Hi,

I want to use (Visual C++) .NET and OpenGL.

Are there any known problems or limitations?

And can anyone tell me where to get some
examples?

TIA,

Ralf

Hmm. The .Net compiler is generally regarded to be MS' best C/C++ compiler
so I doubt you'll find a major shortcoming. If you encounter specific
problems or compiler error messages that you don't understand you are
welcome to post here or in vc.language.

I'd start reading here:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...start_9uw5.asp

That page has a link to a sample:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...lport_0b71.asp

and then I'd try to find a graphics group (there are several MS ones) or an
OpenGL group (I don't think that there is one hosted by MS) on the net.

I'm using dot net and opengl without any problems. Use the Handle member of
the control (eg panel to display in) to get your native HWnd and then setup
your rendering context as usual and all is fine.
