Hi everybody! 2 days i ago, i bought this OGL Game Programming book ! i really like it. but: when i finished coding the simpliest OGL app (drawing a triangle), it simple displays anything !!! i downloaded the source for this chapter from the webpage, compiled it and it worked. i''ve been searching for the problem for one day ... i didn''t find any. this is where you come in. i hope you can tell me where the problem is. the code isn''t documentated at all, but easy to understand (hopefully), and pretty "short". would be great if you can help me !

try to replate that:

while(!done)
{ PeekMessage(&msg,hWnd,NULL,NULL,PM_REMOVE); if(msg.message == WM_QUIT)
{
done = true;
}
else
{
RenderScene();
TranslateMessage(&msg);
DispatchMessage(&msg);
}
}

with something like:

while(!done)
{ if(PeekMessage(&msg,hWnd,NULL,NULL,PM_REMOVE))
{
if(msg.message == WM_QUIT)
done = true;
else
{
TranslateMessage(&msg);
DispatchMessage(&msg);
}
}
else
RenderScene();
}
}


but i have not tried if this is the only problem...

thnx for replying.
but your suggestion doesn''t work, sadly

maybe someone other found a solution !?
i hope so ! i can''t imagine where the problem could be. i compared the downloaded source with mine, but there is no really difference between them ...

the downloaded source, draws the triangle, but mine doesn''t

i really need your help !!!!

Have a nice day !

I would check out your code but cutting and pasting from here into MSVC just isnt happening. lol All the newlines disappear when the code is within the source tags.

If you send the code to me via email I will be happy to check it out for you.

You are missing the viewport and projection matrix settings.

Put this at the begining of render scene :

  
//this will define how much of the window will be used for

//drawing. Here we ask for the full window

glViewport( 0, 0,SCREEN_WIDTH, SCREEN_HEIGHT );

glMatrixMode( GL_PROJECTION );
glLoadIdentity();


for the projection matrix, you have 2 choices :
Perpective (object farther from the viewpoint are smaller)
or orthogonal (object look the same size even if they are far
away from the viewpoint)


to see your triangles, the coordinates should fit in the
projection definition

Just put one of the following 2 function calls.

  
//for ortho:

glOrtho( 50, -50, -50, 50, 50, -50 );

//for perspective :

glFrustum( -5, 5, -5, 5, 1, 100 );

Actually he had the proper code to setup his perspective and viewport. It is in WndProc on WM_SIZE.

I already emailed him about this, but his problem was just a typo really. Just for reference here is the problem:

  
case WM_SIZE:
height = HIWORD(lParam);
width = LOWORD(wParam);


wParam is wrong on the width assignment it should be lParam. The LOWORD of wParam was equating to 0 so he was getting a width of 0 on his viewport.

Julio: Thanks! I knew there had to be a way. lol
