********************************************************************************************************
* INTRODUCTION
 
 - LibGizmo is a small, standalone library that adds a 3D matrix (4x4 floats) manipulation control 
   called 'Gizmo'. It consists of 3 different controls: a Move, a Rotate and a Scale. It works the 
   same way as in 3DStudio Max or Maya. It's written using C++ and the current implementation use 
   OpenGL fixed pipeline. Integration should be easy.

********************************************************************************************************
* USE

 - Set include path to inc, library path to lib

 - Link with LibGizmoDebug.lib for debug build, LibGizmo.lib for release

 - In your code :
	#include "iGizmo.h"

 - create one or more Gizmo with the functions : CreateMoveGizmo(), CreateRotateGizmo(), CreateScaleGizmo()

 - set a pointer to the 16 floats composing the matrix you want to edit
	gizmo->SetEditMatrix( objectMatrix );

 - Any time the display viewport changes, call SetScreenDimensions
    	gizmo->SetScreenDimension( screenWidth, screenHeight );

 - Once a frame, call SetCameraMatrix. The matrices you send

	float viewMat[16];
	float projMat[16];
       
	glGetFloatv (GL_MODELVIEW_MATRIX, viewMat );  
	glGetFloatv (GL_PROJECTION_MATRIX, projMat );  

	gizmo->SetCameraMatrix( viewMat, projMat );


 - Draw the gizmo
        gizmo->Draw();

 - Change the kind of matrix manipulation (view, local, world). Example for 'WORLD' mode:
	gizmo->SetLocation( IGizmo::LOCATE_WORLD );
	
 - When you receive a mouse button down, call
   if (gizmo->OnMouseDown( mousex, mousey ))
        SetCapture( hWnd );
	This methods returns true if you have to capture the mouse. mousex and mousey are display viewport
	local coordinates. 0,0 is upper left.
 - for mouse move and mouse button up, call:
		gizmo->OnMouseMove( mousex, mousey );
        gizmo->OnMouseUp( mousex, mousey );

********************************************************************************************************
* RENDERING

 - The rendering code is done by OpenGL Fixed pipeline. The implementation is done in GizmoTransformRender.cpp.
   6 methodes are called by all the 3 gizmo:

void DrawCircle(const tvector3 &orig,float r,float g,float b,const tvector3 &vtx,const tvector3 &vty);
void DrawCircleHalf(const tvector3 &orig,float r,float g,float b,const tvector3 &vtx,const tvector3 &vty,tplane &camPlan);
void DrawAxis(const tvector3 &orig, const tvector3 &axis, const tvector3 &vtx,const tvector3 &vty, float fct,float fct2,const tvector4 &col);
void DrawCamem(const tvector3& orig,const tvector3& vtx,const tvector3& vty,float ng);
void DrawQuad(const tvector3& orig, float size, bool bSelected, const tvector3& axisU, const tvector3 &axisV);
void DrawTri(const tvector3& orig, float size, bool bSelected, const tvector3& axisU, const tvector3& axisV);

   You can implement those methods using any API. There aren't any other call to a rendering library anywhere
   else. There is an old (untested) version using DX9 api.

********************************************************************************************************
* TODO

 - Linux/MacOSX port
 - Code cleanup
 - improve example with local/world/screen space change
 - DX10/11 rendering
