Hello everyone,

I have that triangle and I want to move top vertex, how can I do that?

open up your favorite 3D modeling software, select it, and move it over.

seriously though, if you only want to move a single vertex, then you need to change it's position before you submit it to the gpu.

IF you're using the old OpenGL, then you're probably using something like this to draw the triangle:

I assume you're using glBegin()/glEnd() pairs, since you don't know how to move a vertex.

glBegin(GL_TRIANGLES);
glVertex3f(-1.0f, -1.0f, 0.0f);
glVertex3f( 1.0f, -1.0f, 0.0f);
glVertex3f( 0.0f,  1.0f, 0.0f); //In this example this is the top vertex
glEnd();


So in this code, the top vertex is the last, so to move it, change the values of the last glVertex3f() call.

I'm a bit confused, do you want to make the triangle a bit taller, or do you actually want to use OpenGL's transformation functions to "resize" it?
