public sealed class LightsFixedCollection

This class accommodates fixed-point math operations.

The following code example shows how to use a LightsFixedCollection class.

// This code example is from the 
// Direct3D Mobile Fixed Point Lighting Sample 
// of the .NET Compact Framework Samples in the SDK. 

// The FrameMove method is called once per frame, 
// and is the entry point for animating the scene. 

public void FrameMove()
    lightData = device.LightsFixed[2];
    // Rotate through the various light types 
    if (((int)appTime % 20) < 10)
        device.LightsFixed[2].Type = LightType.Point;
        device.LightsFixed[2].Type = LightType.Directional;

    // Make sure the light type is supported by the device. If 
    // VertexProcessingCaps.PositionAllLights is not set, the 
    // device does not support point or spot lights, so change 
    // light #2's type to a directional light. 
        if (device.LightsFixed[2].Type == LightType.Point)
            device.LightsFixed[2].Type = LightType.Directional;

    // Values for the light position, direction, and color 
    float x = (float)Math.Sin(appTime*2.000f);
    float y = (float)Math.Sin(appTime*2.246f);
    float z = (float)Math.Sin(appTime*2.640f);

    byte r = (byte)((0.5f + 0.5f * x) * 0xff);
    byte g = (byte)((0.5f + 0.5f * y) * 0xff);
    byte b = (byte)((0.5f + 0.5f * z) * 0xff);
    device.LightsFixed[2].DiffuseColor =
        g, b));
    device.LightsFixed[2].Range = 100.0f;

        case LightType.Point:
            device.LightsFixed[2].Position =
                new Vector3Fixed(4.5f * x, 4.5f * y, 4.5f * z);
            device.LightsFixed[2].Attenuation1  = 0.4f;
        case LightType.Directional:
            device.LightsFixed[2].Direction =
                new Vector3Fixed(x, y, z);
