Device Class

The parent object of all graphical objects in the scene.

Namespace: Microsoft.WindowsMobile.DirectX.Direct3D
Assembly: Microsoft.WindowsMobile.DirectX (in microsoft.windowsmobile.directx.dll)

public class Device : IDisposable
public class Device implements IDisposable
public class Device implements IDisposable
Not applicable.

A device performs primitive-based rendering, creates resources, handles system-level variables, and gets and sets palettes.

The following code example creates a device.

public class CreateDevice : Form
{
    // Set global variables for this project.
    Device device = null;

    public CreateDevice()
    {
        // Set the initial size of the form.
        this.ClientSize = new System.Drawing.Size(400, 300);
        // Set the caption for the form.
        this.Text = "D3D Tutorial 01: CreateDevice";
    }

    public bool InitializeGraphics()
    {
        try
        {
            // Set up presentation parameters and create the 
            // Direct3D device.
            PresentParameters presentParams = new PresentParameters();
            presentParams.Windowed = true;
            presentParams.SwapEffect = SwapEffect.Discard;
            device = new Device(0, DeviceType.Default, this, CreateFlags.None, presentParams);
            return true;
        }
        catch (DirectXException)
        {
            return false;
        }
    }
    private void Render()
    {
        if (device == null)
            return;

        //Clear the backbuffer to a blue color. 
        device.Clear(ClearFlags.Target, System.Drawing.Color.Blue, 1.0f, 0);
        //Begin the scene.
        device.BeginScene();

        // Rendering scene objects, if desired.

        //End the scene.
        device.EndScene();
        device.Present();
    }
    protected override void OnPaint(System.Windows.Forms.PaintEventArgs e)
    {
        // Render on painting.
        this.Render();
    }
    protected override void OnKeyPress(System.Windows.Forms.KeyPressEventArgs e)
    {
        if ((int)(byte)e.KeyChar == (int)System.Windows.Forms.Keys.Escape)
            // Handle the ESC key being pressed.
            this.Close();
    }

    /// <Summary>
    /// The main entry point for the application.
    /// </Summary>
    static void Main()
    {

        using (CreateDevice DeviceForm = new CreateDevice())
        {
            // Initialize Direct3D.
            if (!DeviceForm.InitializeGraphics())
            {
                MessageBox.Show("Could not initialize Direct3D.  This tutorial will exit.");
                return;
            }
            DeviceForm.Show();

            // While the form is still valid, render and process messages.
            // while (DeviceForm.Created)
            //{
                DeviceForm.Render();
                Application.DoEvents();
            //}
        }
    }
