Default dx9 on vb6


hi all,

i was just browsing thru msdn and it seems like vb6 is not included in the list of development tools for dx9. The list mentioned vb.net but not vb6.

Should i download dx8 instead?

thanks,

ferdz

DirectX 9 is not compatible with VB6... you either need DirectX 8 or VB.NET.

Personally, I'd pick up VB.NET and use DX9.

I realize that's not always feasible.

Well, yes, you can make some classes for VB6, but that'll probably be much more hassle that it would be to just go to VB.NET or C++ and develop with DX9 . (Don't know how to do it either)

well its just that ive already made classes that are c compatible for dx9 in c++

i want to use vb6 for a map editor

I know how to use dlls in vb6 but in alot of the parts of my wrapper i put references to the dx classes, so i wouldnt have to rewrite some of their simple functions, would i still be able to use their dx classes through my wrapper into vb6?

sorry for the hijacking
