This unique book presents a comprehensive solution for creating good interfaces using the latest version of DirectX. This involves building an interface library from the ground up. Divided into three sections, the book discusses the foundations of interface design, the construction of a feature-rich interface library, and the creation of a fully functional media player in DirectShow.

Book News Annotation:

He illustrates the design, implementation, and testing of a full-formed user interface using the DirectX package of interface tools, with suggestions and rationales for good planning and sound coding. The disk contains code for the examples and exercises, DirectX 9.0 SDK Update of summer 203, and an evaluation edition of a paint package.
