Problem with direct3d RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I wanted to create a cube in NxNxN fomat such that a bigger cube contains NxNxN smaller cubes of size say MxMxM and all cubes are seperated by some equal distance. I achieved that successfully by downloading some code from the internet. I can also rotate the cube with mouse.

    Now the problem is that I wanted to color each cube on a mouse click. The cube on which I click should change the color of that cube say from Red to Green. I am not able to achieve this please help...
