Is it possible for the DarkGDK component in embedded form to keep rendering/running while the form is being moved/dragged/resized? I have not found a good solution, but for the server application I'm writing, I would like to know if there is a solution for this.

One way possibly, would be to ensure that you call the Sync method during the form resize / move events of your application. I also think that this is dependent on what optimisations you have enabled or disabled under Windows, i.e. Enable windows contents dragging when moving windows about the desktop.

Hey Apex, I'm not really drawing anything to the window really. I tried putting a sync in the window move event, and it still didn't update. And I also have that optimization on.

Like I said, the DarkGDK component is there just for using the engine. I never, ever render anything to the screen. I use .NET controls that interact with the engine, and that's it.

My loop looks like this:



This just lets the component run without interference (works quite well actually). The only issue I've run into is this window dragging issue.
