accepted rendering issue: depth buffering + blending: how do they work together?

comment rendering issue: depth buffering + blending: how do they work together?
Ah right, but I just have to sort right? It's not like I need to disable the depth buffer? Because it would be silly to draw pixel (screenpos x,screenpos y) multiple times. I don't want to work with alpha testing because it doesn't allow partial transparency

comment rendering issue: depth buffering + blending: how do they work together?
@stephelton yes. I think this has something to do with order-independent blending, but I'm not sure. It would be nice to hear from someone with more experience what the problem exactly is, and methods I can use to fix it

comment ID3D10Device::RSSetState to be called every frame?
@KTF Not really :( I will one day perhaps look into it, but then again there's not much I can change about how DirectX works...

comment ID3D10Device::RSSetState to be called every frame?
@KTF your opinion is invalid. But more importantly, The question is not about design principles or standards. It's a pure technical question. I do not need lectures about why minimal performance gains may or may not be a good thing. This is how I like to code. And yes, I am aware of all the quotes / lectures in the world telling me not to do it, I know why people consider it a bad thing in an 'economically efficient environment'. That does not mean it's not a great exercise.

Yes, I know that but these can not set an array of structs, which was my question...

It's more of an attitude :) Maybe the benefits are really small and not noticeable, but I still try to avoid writing abundant code. Your reply is great side-information, but unfortunately it's not an answer to my question.

Since I don't need to change it every frame, it seems inefficient to me. If you need to change it every frame, I agree, but this is not the case. Is there no way around?
