Hi guys, Im having trouble with glGetString(). Using VC++ 2003. Eg. My code is - const GLubyte* gl_vend = glGetString(GL_VENDOR); I'm getting a NULL pointer returned (Im using the debugger to look at the value). Any ideas on why it won't work? I don't think an extension is needed? Also, how would I go about casting gl_vend to a standard C++ string? Thanks for any help!

std::string glVendor = reinterpret_cast< char const * >(glGetString(GL_VENDOR));

mikeman, good guess, I haven't created a rendering context at all yet. I didn't realise a rendering context was needed for non-graphics displaying commands.

Enigma, I'll give that a try once I've created a rendering context.

Thanks for the help!!
