OpenGL having some problem with wglUseFontBitmaps

Recommended Posts

Have the function build font that i gotten from NEHEs tutorial page when i'm trying to use it in my project all i get is black screen. if i add these rows HGLRC hglrc = wglCreateContext(*mHDC); wglMakeCurrent(*mHDC, hglrc); The font will appear. So it feels like what the hdc points to isn't the one used for some strange reason. I can't understand what i have done wrong. Very thankful if someone would like to help me Create bitmap function

CBitmapFont::CBitmapFont(HDC *hdc,int fontSize)
{
		mHDC = hdc;
		BuildFont(fontSize);
}


GLvoid CBitmapFont::BuildFont( int fontSize ) // Build Our Bitmap Font
{
	HGLRC hglrc = wglCreateContext(*mHDC);
	wglMakeCurrent(*mHDC, hglrc);


	assert(mHDC != NULL);
	HFONT	font;										// Windows Font ID
	HFONT	oldfont;									// Used For Good House Keeping

	base = glGenLists(96);								// Storage For 96 Characters

	font = CreateFont(fontSize,							// Height Of Font
		0,								// Width Of Font
		0,								// Angle Of Escapement
		0,								// Orientation Angle
		FW_NORMAL,						// Font Weight
		FALSE,							// Italic
		FALSE,							// Underline
		FALSE,							// Strikeout
		ANSI_CHARSET,					// Character Set Identifier
		OUT_TT_PRECIS,					// Output Precision
		CLIP_DEFAULT_PRECIS,			// Clipping Precision
		ANTIALIASED_QUALITY,			// Output Quality
		FF_DONTCARE|DEFAULT_PITCH,		// Family And Pitch
		"Courier New");					// Font Name

	assert(font !=NULL);
	oldfont = (HFONT)SelectObject(*mHDC, font);           // Selects The Font We Want
	assert(oldfont != NULL);
	assert(oldfont != HGDI_ERROR );
	HRESULT result = wglUseFontBitmaps(*mHDC, 32, 96, base);				// Builds 96 Characters Starting At Character 32
	
	if(result != true)
	{	
		TCHAR szBuf[80]; 
		LPVOID lpMsgBuf;
		DWORD dw = GetLastError(); 

		FormatMessage(
			FORMAT_MESSAGE_ALLOCATE_BUFFER | 
			FORMAT_MESSAGE_FROM_SYSTEM,
			NULL,
			dw,
			MAKELANGID(LANG_NEUTRAL, SUBLANG_DEFAULT),
			(LPTSTR) &lpMsgBuf,
			0, NULL );

		wsprintf(szBuf, 
			"failed with error %d: %s", dw, lpMsgBuf); 

		MessageBox(NULL, szBuf, "Error", MB_OK); 


		LocalFree(lpMsgBuf);


	}


	assert(result != false);
	HGDIOBJ myresult = SelectObject(*mHDC, oldfont);							// Selects The Font We Want
	DeleteObject(font);									// Delete The Font
}
Create window and initialize OpenGL

mHDC is definitely the problem. It's hard to see what it even is, i'm guessing some global CDC or this wouldn't compile. Be sure that the CDC is actually the windows DC or at leasts shares memory with it (wglShareLists), or the display lists for the fonts will not be available.

We would need to see the window creation code before we would know why your DC is not receiving OpenGL calls.

If you're getting a black screen, then you probably have the right DC, try changing clear colors to verify this. Always remember to disable texturing, lighting and depth testing when using fonts.

the window creation code is listed. Look for this:

int CGame::createWindow(HINSTANCE hInstance, bool bFullScreen, int iWidth, GLint iHeight)


Sorry if the post is a bit caothic, if you got suggestions on how i could make it clearer and easier to read i would be happy to change it.


Oh, and you said "Always remember to disable texturing, lighting and depth testing when using fonts."

You mean that i should disable it before printing the font on screen and then eanble it afterwards?

Click edit in the top right of your original post and put your code in source brackets please!

[ source]
//Code here.
[ /source]

Just remove the spaces.

Make sure you shutdown texture before you render your text and then you can reenable it after you render the text. You should post your rendering function. You can try and set your color to white with glColor3f(1.0f, 1.0f, 1.0f) and see if that works.

      I assumed that if a shader is computationally expensive then the execution is just slower. But running the following GLSL FS instead just crashes
      void main() { float x = 0; float y = 0; int sum = 0; for (float x = 0; x < 10; x += 0.00005) { for (float y = 0; y < 10; y += 0.00005) { sum++; } } fragColor = vec4(1, 1, 1 , 1.0); } with unhandled exception in nvoglv32.dll. Are there any hard limits on the number of steps/time that a shader can take before it is shut down? I was thinking about implementing some time intensive computation in shaders where it would take on the order of seconds to compute a frame, is that possible? Thanks.

      There are studios selling applications which is just copying any 3Dgraphic content and regenerating into another new window. especially for CAVE Virtual reality experience. so that the user opens REvite or CAD or any other 3D applications and opens a model. then when the user selects the rendered window the VR application copies the 3D model information from the OpenGL window. 
      I got the clue that the VR application replaces the windows opengl32.dll file. how this is possible ... how can we copy the 3d content from the current OpenGL window.
      anyone, please help me .. how to go further... to create an application like VR CAVE. 
       
      Thanks

      hi all,

      i am trying to build an OpenGL 2D GUI system, (yeah yeah, i know i should not be re inventing the wheel, but this is for educational and some other purpose only),
      i have built GUI system before using 2D systems such as that of HTML/JS canvas, but in 2D system, i can directly match a mouse coordinates to the actual graphic coordinates with additional computation for screen size/ratio/scale ofcourse.
      now i want to port it to OpenGL, i know that to render a 2D object in OpenGL we specify coordiantes in Clip space or use the orthographic projection, now heres what i need help about.
      1. what is the right way of rendering the GUI? is it thru drawing in clip space or switching to ortho projection?
      2. from screen coordinates (top left is 0,0 nd bottom right is width height), how can i map the mouse coordinates to OpenGL 2D so that mouse events such as button click works? In consideration ofcourse to the current screen/size dimension.
      3. when let say if the screen size/dimension is different, how to handle this? in my previous javascript 2D engine using canvas, i just have my working coordinates and then just perform the bitblk or copying my working canvas to screen canvas and scale the mouse coordinates from there, in OpenGL how to work on a multiple screen sizes (more like an OpenGL ES question).
      lastly, if you guys know any books, resources, links or tutorials that handle or discuss this, i found one with marekknows opengl game engine website but its not free,
      Just let me know. Did not have any luck finding resource in google for writing our own OpenGL GUI framework.
      IF there are no any available online, just let me know, what things do i need to look into for OpenGL and i will study them one by one to make it work.
      thank you, and looking forward to positive replies.

      I have a few beginner questions about tesselation that I really have no clue.
      The opengl wiki doesn't seem to talk anything about the details.
       
      What is the relationship between TCS layout out and TES layout in?
      How does the tesselator know how control points are organized?
          e.g. If TES input requests triangles, but TCS can output N vertices.
             What happens in this case?
      In this article,
      http://www.informit.com/articles/article.aspx?p=2120983
      the isoline example TCS out=4, but TES in=isoline.
      And gl_TessCoord is only a single one.
      So which ones are the control points?
      How are tesselator building primitives?

      I've been developing a 2D Engine using SFML + ImGui.
      Here you can see an image
      The editor is rendered using ImGui and the scene window is a sf::RenderTexture where I draw the GameObjects and then is converted to ImGui::Image to render it in the editor.
      Now I need to create a 3D Engine during this year in my Bachelor Degree but using SDL2 + ImGui and I want to recreate what I did with the 2D Engine. 
      I've managed to render the editor like I did in the 2D Engine using this example that comes with ImGui. 
      3D Editor preview
      But I don't know how to create an equivalent of sf::RenderTexture in SDL2, so I can draw the 3D scene there and convert it to ImGui::Image to show it in the editor.
      If you can provide code will be better. And if you want me to provide any specific code tell me.
      Thanks!
