Hi. Sorry t post this in General Programming but I got no response in the OpenGL forum. I've tried calling glutSetOption(GLUT_ACTION_ON_WINDOW_CLOSE, GLUT_ACTION_CONTINUE_EXECUTION); or glutSetOption(GLUT_ACTION_ON_WINDOW_CLOSE, GLUT_ACTION_GLUTMAINLOOP_RETURNS); at the start of my program. Neither seems to change the default behaviour. I've also tried calling them immediately before and after calling glutCreateWindow, still no difference -- all windows close and glutMainLoop never returns. glutCloseFunc is called properly. I can keep the windows alive by calling glutMainLoop again in this callback but then I can't close any windows! If I add a glutDestroyWindow to the glutCloseFunc then I get an infinite loop. What I really want to do is continue execution of all remaining windows. A glutCloseFunc hack is acceptable. Surely someone's managed it.
