Microsoft .Net with SFML; Windows Forms
« on: September 04, 2008, 06:33:21 pm »
Hello,
I've a question. in General it is possible to use some classes/funktions of .Net with SFML, like Timers(quite useful if you only use Microsoft Windows :wink: ) for example.
But is it also possible, to display Windows Forms Buttons in an SFML Window, or to display the SFML Graphic in an Windows Forms Window?

Sorry for my bad English, I'm German(What about a german part of the forum  :?: )

There's a .Net binding of SFML, and a forum to have conversations about it ;)

And like with other languages, it's possible to use SFML in a window which has already been created externally (so in the case of .Net, a Form).

But I thought that the .net Binding is C# only. Is it also possible with C++(I forgot to write that)?

The binding is written in C#, but is then compatible with any .Net language.

But for C++/CLI I guess you can directly import and use the C++ libraries.
