Hey, I''m currently working on a GUI for my game, it will consists of some windows with button and text.. Right now I''m doing everything with colored polygons, but now I would like to use textures. What I''ve thought about is having a 512x512 or 256x256 texture, containing different pictures to represent buttons, borders, corners, check boxes, etc... But the problem is I don''t really know how to manage the different position of the images inside my textures with openGL.. Anyone know how could I do that? Maybe by using something like a RECT struct? Thanks

Well, since 0,0 is the lower-left point of the texture and 1,1 is the upper-right, just find the coordinates representing the extents of the image within the texture. When rendering the button or whatever, just use those values for the texture coordinates. . .
