How can I draw a shape to a sprite?

I want to draw my own sprites.
Can I draw a shape to a sprite for this?

Can you give more details ? What does "my own sprites" mean ? What does "draw a shape to a sprite" means ? Are you talking about render-to-image ?

See this pseudo code, hope you understand me now

Code: [Select]
sf::Sprite mySprite(...);
sf::Shape myShape = sf::Shape::Circle(...);
mySprite.Draw(myShape)

while (App.IsOpened())
    {
      ...
      App.Draw(mySprite);

        // Display things on screen
        App.Display();
    }

Ok, so you'll have to wait for the render-to-image feature, which should be done in the next version (hopefully) :)

However, I don't know if it's just for the example, but if you just want to pre-render one shape if may be not worth it.

1) Fine. Currently not in the SVN?
2) You are right. It is a bad example.

The  render-to-image feature has the same feature as the render-to-window has, right?

- Render string to an image
- Render image to an image
- Render shape to an image
- etc...

No, I haven't started working on it yet.

Yep, should be exactly the same interface, just the target of the rendering will change (an image instead of a window).
