Create an SDL window from an existing native window.


SDL_Window * SDL_CreateWindowFrom(const void *data);

Function Parameters

data a pointer to driver-dependent window creation data, typically your native window cast to a void*

Return Value

Returns the window that was created or NULL on failure; call SDL_GetError() for more information.


In some cases (e.g. OpenGL) and on some platforms (e.g. Microsoft Windows) the hint SDL_HINT_VIDEO_WINDOW_SHARE_PIXEL_FORMAT needs to be configured before using SDL_CreateWindowFrom().


This function is available since SDL 2.0.0.
