Cannot draw primitives with SharpDX on Windows 10 Universal App (but still able to clear the background)

Sorry because of my bad English. I am trying to write a very simple DirectX 11 on Windows 10 app with SharpDX, which draws a triangle at the middle of the windows. The problem is the triangle is not displayed while I can still change the background color (using ClearRenderTargetView). I verified that the render function is called periodically and my triangle is front-face (clockwise). What I have tried:

  • Disable back-face culling
  • Set static width and height
  • Try other primitives (line, triangle strip)
  • Change vertex shader input from float3 to float4 and vice-versa

I found that this post has very similar symptoms but still not work!

I have posted my code on GitHub at:

Here is my initialization code (where I think the problem resides):

    D3D11.Device2 device;     D3D11.DeviceContext deviceContext;     DXGI.SwapChain2 swapChain;     D3D11.Texture2D backBufferTexture;     D3D11.RenderTargetView backBufferView;      private void InitializeD3D()     {         using (D3D11.Device defaultDevice = new D3D11.Device(D3D.DriverType.Hardware, D3D11.DeviceCreationFlags.Debug))             this.device = defaultDevice.QueryInterface<D3D11.Device2>();         this.deviceContext = this.device.ImmediateContext2;          DXGI.SwapChainDescription1 swapChainDescription = new DXGI.SwapChainDescription1()         {             AlphaMode = DXGI.AlphaMode.Ignore,             BufferCount = 2,             Format = DXGI.Format.R8G8B8A8_UNorm,             Height = (int)(this.swapChainPanel.RenderSize.Height),             Width = (int)(this.swapChainPanel.RenderSize.Width),             SampleDescription = new DXGI.SampleDescription(1, 0),             Scaling = SharpDX.DXGI.Scaling.Stretch,             Stereo = false,             SwapEffect = DXGI.SwapEffect.FlipSequential,             Usage = DXGI.Usage.RenderTargetOutput         };          using (DXGI.Device3 dxgiDevice3 = this.device.QueryInterface<DXGI.Device3>())         using (DXGI.Factory3 dxgiFactory3 = dxgiDevice3.Adapter.GetParent<DXGI.Factory3>())         {             DXGI.SwapChain1 swapChain1 = new DXGI.SwapChain1(dxgiFactory3, this.device, ref swapChainDescription);             this.swapChain = swapChain1.QueryInterface<DXGI.SwapChain2>();         }          using (DXGI.ISwapChainPanelNative nativeObject = ComObject.As<DXGI.ISwapChainPanelNative>(this.swapChainPanel))             nativeObject.SwapChain = this.swapChain;          this.backBufferTexture = this.swapChain.GetBackBuffer<D3D11.Texture2D>(0);         this.backBufferView = new D3D11.RenderTargetView(this.device, this.backBufferTexture);         this.deviceContext.OutputMerger.SetRenderTargets(this.backBufferView);          deviceContext.Rasterizer.State = new D3D11.RasterizerState(device, new D3D11.RasterizerStateDescription()         {             CullMode = D3D11.CullMode.None,             FillMode = D3D11.FillMode.Solid,             IsMultisampleEnabled = true         });         deviceContext.Rasterizer.SetViewport(0, 0, (int)swapChainPanel.Width, (int)swapChainPanel.Height);          CompositionTarget.Rendering += CompositionTarget_Rendering;         Application.Current.Suspending += Current_Suspending;          isDXInitialized = true;     } 

InitScene() function:

    D3D11.Buffer triangleVertBuffer;     D3D11.VertexShader vs;     D3D11.PixelShader ps;     D3D11.InputLayout vertLayout;     RawVector3[] verts;      private void InitScene()     {         D3D11.InputElement[] inputElements = new D3D11.InputElement[]         {             new D3D11.InputElement("POSITION", 0, DXGI.Format.R32G32B32_Float, 0)         };          using (CompilationResult vsResult = ShaderBytecode.CompileFromFile("vs.hlsl", "main", "vs_4_0"))         {             vs = new D3D11.VertexShader(device, vsResult.Bytecode.Data);             vertLayout = new D3D11.InputLayout(device, vsResult.Bytecode, inputElements);         }          using (CompilationResult psResult = ShaderBytecode.CompileFromFile("ps.hlsl", "main", "ps_4_0"))             ps = new D3D11.PixelShader(device, psResult.Bytecode.Data);          deviceContext.VertexShader.Set(vs);         deviceContext.PixelShader.Set(ps);          verts = new RawVector3[] {             new RawVector3( 0.0f, 0.5f, 0.5f ),             new RawVector3( 0.5f, -0.5f, 0.5f ),             new RawVector3( -0.5f, -0.5f, 0.5f )         };         triangleVertBuffer = D3D11.Buffer.Create(device, D3D11.BindFlags.VertexBuffer, verts);          deviceContext.InputAssembler.InputLayout = vertLayout;         deviceContext.InputAssembler.PrimitiveTopology = D3D.PrimitiveTopology.TriangleList;     } 

Render function:

    private void RenderScene()     {         this.deviceContext.ClearRenderTargetView(this.backBufferView, new RawColor4(red, green, blue, 0));          deviceContext.InputAssembler.SetVertexBuffers(0,             new D3D11.VertexBufferBinding(triangleVertBuffer, Utilities.SizeOf<RawVector3>(), 0));         deviceContext.Draw(verts.Length, 0);          this.swapChain.Present(0, DXGI.PresentFlags.None);     } 

Thank you for your help.
