public sealed class TextureLoader

The following code example demonstrates how to load a texture.

// This code example is taken from the
// Direct3D Mobile Texture Sample included with the
// .NET Compact Framework samples.

// Called whenever the rendering device is reset.
void OnResetDevice(object sender, EventArgs e)
    Device dev = (Device)sender;
    // Turn off culling, to see the front and back of the triangle.
    dev.RenderState.CullMode = Cull.None;
    // Turn off D3D lighting.
    dev.RenderState.Lighting = false;
    // Turn on the ZBuffer.
    dev.RenderState.ZBufferEnable = true;
    // Turn on perspective correction for textures.
    // This provides a more accurate visual at the cost
    // of a small performance overhead.
    dev.RenderState.TexturePerspective = true;

    // Now create the texture.
    texture = TextureLoader.FromStream(dev,
