Composing with WPF?

Mar 1, 2012 at 7:09 PM

Hi there -- I know this isn't the point of the ANX project, but I'm wondering if there's a sample anywhere of composing an ANX scene with WPF -- basically what does, but using ANX instead of SharpDX directly.

currently we haven't tested that possibility, but hooking a graphics device on a Control Handle is one of my next tasks, so i'll also make sure it works on wpf controls.

For "Metro Style" on Windows 8 this will not be that easy as it is with the "old world". With the last version of the SDK this wasn't possible.

I'm not trying to do a Metro app, just a normal desktop WPF app.

AstrorEnales commited a working WPF sample yesterday.

Very cool. I've been able to try it and I've got that beautiful CornflowerBlue showing. I'll try to find some more time to test it out -- I spent some time blending XNA and WPF and found that it worked in some cases but there were bad frame sync issues between the two models once things got more complex. Not sure if ANX can have the same problems.

Im glad the sample works for you and meets your requirements :)

I havn't experienced these sync issues yet, so if you can reproduce it with a sample, I would really appreciate if you could provide the source for that, so I can take a look at possible solutions.
