D3DXIntersect function

Determines if a ray intersects with a mesh.

Syntax


HRESULT D3DXIntersect(
  _In_   LPD3DXBASEMESH pMesh,
  _In_   const D3DXVECTOR3 *pRayPos,
  _In_   const D3DXVECTOR3 *pRayDir,
  _Out_  BOOL *pHit,
  _Out_  DWORD *pFaceIndex,
  _Out_  FLOAT *pU,
  _Out_  FLOAT *pV,
  _Out_  FLOAT *pDist,
  _Out_  LPD3DXBUFFER *ppAllHits,
  _Out_  DWORD *pCountOfHits
);

Parameters

pMesh [in]

Type: LPD3DXBASEMESH

Pointer to an ID3DXBaseMesh interface, representing the mesh to be tested.

pRayPos [in]

Type: const D3DXVECTOR3*

Pointer to a D3DXVECTOR3 structure, specifying the point where the ray begins.

pRayDir [in]

Type: const D3DXVECTOR3*

Pointer to a D3DXVECTOR3 structure, specifying the direction of the ray.

pHit [out]

Type: BOOL*

Pointer to a BOOL. If the ray intersects a triangular face on the mesh, this value will be set to TRUE. Otherwise, this value is set to FALSE.

pFaceIndex [out]

Type: DWORD*

Pointer to an index value of the face closest to the ray origin, if pHit is TRUE.

pU [out]

Type: FLOAT*

Pointer to a barycentric hit coordinate, U.

pV [out]

Type: FLOAT*

Pointer to a barycentric hit coordinate, V.

pDist [out]

Type: FLOAT*

Pointer to a ray intersection parameter distance.

ppAllHits [out]

Type: LPD3DXBUFFER*

Pointer to an ID3DXBuffer object, containing an array of D3DXINTERSECTINFO structures.

pCountOfHits [out]

Type: DWORD*

Pointer to a DWORD that contains the number of entries in the ppAllHits array.

Return value

Type: HRESULT

If the function succeeds, the return value is D3D_OK. If the function fails, the return value can be: E_OUTOFMEMORY.

Remarks

The D3DXIntersect function provides a way to understand points in and around a triangle, independent of where the triangle is actually located. This function returns the resulting point by using the following equation: V1 + U(V2 - V1) + V(V3 - V1).

Any point in the plane V1V2V3 can be represented by the barycentric coordinate (U,V). The parameter U controls how much V2 gets weighted into the result, and the parameter V controls how much V3 gets weighted into the result. Lastly, the value of [1 - (U + V)] controls how much V1 gets weighted into the result.

Barycentric coordinates are a form of general coordinates. In this context, using barycentric coordinates represents a change in coordinate systems. What holds true for Cartesian coordinates holds true for barycentric coordinates.

Barycentric coordinates define a point inside a triangle in terms of the triangle's vertices. For a more in-depth description of barycentric coordinates, see Mathworld's Barycentric Coordinates Description.
