sfMouse_getPosition with sfRenderWindow*?
« on: May 01, 2012, 12:46:09 pm »
I have an sfRenderWindow*, but sfMouse_getPosition() wants an sfWindow*. I couldn't find any method to make/get an sfWindow* from an sfRenderWindow* without modifying the source. Is there an orthodox (and fast) method, or should I just hack CSFML?

Hm... trying casting from sfRenderWindow* to sfWindow*. I'll write the results here once I'm finished.

If you'd use SFML with C++ it wouldn't matter since sf::RenderWindow is inherited from sf::Window.

I'm just curious what's the advantage of using C instead of C++?

Ok, it works that way ^^

Well, I want to write a game in Haskell using SFML. So I make the rendering engine, keyboard and mouse handling and sound in sfml using C, because Haskell interfaces better with C, then with C++.

In fact there should be overloads for sfRenderWindow, I forgot to implement them. There's no clean workaround, any attempt to cast types produces undefined behaviour.
