Default Basic Architecture

okay, i am learning directX and i was wondering, if anyone is familiar with DX can they give me a lil pseudocode so i can see (in english not C#) where to implement which chunks of code? kinda type it in this format, this is what i know so far...

// class Form
    private vars that create null instances of DirecX devices

    Form() {} // if anything should go here let me know

    void InitializeDirectX() // initialize devices with flags here.

// In the Main part of my program
there is a using loop that keeps running the application while the form exist.
// It looks something like this
using(Form Form1 = new Form())

my problem is i do not really understand where to go from there.

Hi iceman,

Based on your post, it seems you are pretty new to C# yes?

And a very short answer to your question, I would recommend a step-by-step book, they will take you through your "baby steps" to get you up and running so you can continue on and start getting creative! :)

Also - just as a side point, if you are doing heavy DirectX stuff (such as games), it may be worth doing it in C++, especially if you are looking to work with them..

do you think C# will be used for game development? Where do people see major applications of C#?

Asking what programmers see as the major [software] applications of C# is like asking a carpenter what the major building applications are of wood. Nearly whatever you can dream up in software can be built with C#, it is but a fundamental build block of .NET development. I use it for web and desktop applications, the compact framework can be used for mobile apps, I've seen a guy use it to make a Wiimote controlled R/C car and companies are building enterprise solutions with .NET. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination and the desire to learn how to do it.
