Access DirectX api?
This post is in reguards to finding some direction with programming client-side web graphics.
I have Windows Vista Ultimate, but I usually run my XP Pro OS. I got into Microsoft at a bad time when Vista was just coming out. If I could go back, I would just have waited for Windows 7.
Additionally, I also did some research on ActiveX here: http://www.active-x.com/articles/whatis.htm. This sounds promising due to the mentioning of cross-platform and use of different programming languages. I have no idea how to get started with using and/or accessing ActiveX &/or DirectX from script.
Oh, and I almost forgot. I am programming without an IDE. I have the Express Editions, and also DevC++. I have an O'reilly book on object oriented programming as well. I am just not all that into trying to compile my code at this time. So, I am doing everything old school with notepad. Sometimes I use notepad++. I am waiting on some older (2000 to 2003) books on ASP, DHTML, ADO, and VBScript to come in the mail. The newer .net stuff has a way of losing me. That O'reilly book is great, but l am staying away from compiling code if I can help it.
If someone could give me some tips, ie: links, book suggestions, etc. I'll be SUPER greatful!
