Add a new hint SDL_HINT_VIDEO_WINDOW_SHARE_PIXEL_FORMAT that allows S…
…DL_CreateWindowFrom() to set the pixel format of another SDL_Window (and also will set the SDL_WINDOW_OPENGL flag on the window created with SDL_CreateWindowFrom()). The reasoning behind this change is that source2 in -tools mode has a single OpenGL context that is used with multiple different windows. Some of those windows are created outside the engine (i.e. with Qt) and therefore we need to use SDL_CreateWindowFrom() to get an SDL_Window for those. The requirement for sharing an OpenGL context across multiple different windows is that each window has the same pixel format. To facilitate this, I now set SDL_HINT_VIDEO_WINDOW_SHARE_PIXEL_FORMAT for the main window before calling SDL_CreateWindowFrom(). When I do this, SDL_CreateWindowFrom() will: 1. Set the pixel format of the returned window to the same pixel format as this SDL_Window passed in with the hint 2. The flag SDL_WINDOW_OPENGL will be set on the new window so it can be used for OpenGL rendering. I only currently implemented this for Win32/WGL so implementing it for other platforms (i.e. X11) remains a TODO. CR: SamL Some pseudocode that shows how this is used in Source2: HWND hExternalHwnd; // HWND that was established outside of SDL // Create main window (happens inside platwindow.cpp) SDL_Window *mainWindow = SDL_CreateWindow( , SDL_WINDOW_OPENGL .. ); // Create GL context, happens inside rendersystemgl SDL_GLContext onlyContext = SDL_GL_CreateContext( mainWindow ); // Now I need to create another window from hEternalHwnd for my swap chain that will have the same pixel format as mainWindow, so set the hint SDL_SetHint( SDL_HINT_VIDEO_WINDOW_SHARE_PIXEL_FORMAT, CFmtStr( %p, mainWindow) ); // Create the secondary window. This returned window will have SDL_WINDOW_OPENGL set and share a pixel format with mainWindow from the hint SDL_Window *secondaryWindow = SDL_CreateWindowFrom( hExternalHwnd ); // To render to the main window: SDL_GL_MakeCurrent( mainWindow, onlyContext ); // Do some rendering to main window // To render to the secondary window: SDL_GLMakeCurrent( secondaryWindow, onlyContext ); // Do some rendering to secondary window
