(this is my first post to this ng; so if it is the wrong ng, please
direct me to the one i need...)
my problem not necessarily bound to C++ (but could also be C), but since
my application is in C++, i post it here.
i want to draw from application A into a window that has been created by
an application B (in my case: i want to render an openGL-scene into a a
under linux i can get a handle of type "Window" from the Xserver, into
which i can draw (assumed that i have permissions)
under windows the only such handle i have found is HWND, which is a
pointer to a structure and thus can not be shared accross
is there a way to get some (numeric, symbolic) ID that identifies a
window unambiguously ?
i have searched the web, but as soon as google seems to understand my
request it spits out sites about how to do it in linux....
any help is appreciated
