In short, I want to use SFML to display an image to the window that's already been created in the Chili framework.

Is this possible?

If so, how do I go about doing it? I've found tutorials and information on textures, sprites and displaying images and such with SFML but all the tutorials are for creating a window with SFML and displaying the image inside that.

I believe the sf::Window class will allow you to create a window using the HWND handle that is stored in MainWindow of the chili framework.

I haven't done this before, but it's a place to start.
