|Microsoft DirectX 9.0|
Microsoft?DirectX?provides sample applications that help make learning to use the graphics pipeline easier.
The following samples are built on a base class that includes Microsoft Windows?and Microsoft Direct3D?functionality. This base class provides many of the basic features in a Windows application, such as creating windows and handling messages. The samples include a derived class that overrides the methods necessary to add Direct3D features, such as bump maps, vertex blending, and volume textures. For more information about the sample architecture, see Sample Framework.
The AppWizard is available to help generate DirectX applications.
Although DirectX samples include Microsoft Visual C++?project workspace files, you might need to verify other settings in your development environment to ensure that the samples compile properly. For more information, see Compiling DirectX Samples and Other DirectX Applications.
