OpenGL under Mono.Windows.Forms

September 23rd, 2005

This morning on my way to work I was thinking about how I was going to integrate the OpenGL Renderer into Inspire under Linux (yeah walking to work without my iPod is boring). For everything else so far I have used winforms and I would really like to keep it that way.

And as if by magic! Jonathon Chambers wrote an excellent blog entry yesterday on how to get OpenGL working under Mono’s WinForms implementation. Once I’ve reinstalled grub on my booting hard drive I’ll have to boot into linux and give it a try. I’ll hopefully get a chance this weekend but who knows… life has been rather hectic recently.

One of the reasons I haven’t had much time to work on Inspire is that I’ve been working on the Content Mangement System for this website. The backend now uses the excellant xinha, a wysiwyg html(link) editor and has full support for editing news, articles, menu layout and images. From the visitors side the most noticable change is the new comments system. This will soon be upgraded to use xinha as well once I’ve had a chance to lock the editor down a bit to stop malicious people breaking things.

This isn’t the only website that uses my Content Management System, apart from the (under development) Inspire website, Saving the World and Other Stories also uses it. This is a website run by a friend of mine and contains his film reviews and any political or existential rants. It’s been useful having a non computer person to test my CMS to find all the bugs and help me improve the user interface.
