Hello:) I'm trying to learn how to do cube mapping for reflections on objects. The problem is all I see is an unmapped polygon. I load in 6 maps, they are working because if I comment out the cube map enable code the cube is mapped with the last image loaded. This is the code I copied from the net to view a cube map, is it correct?

		glLoadIdentity();
		glTranslatef(xpos,ypos,zpos);
		rot+=0.01f;
		glRotatef(rot,0.0f,1.0f,0.0f);
		glRotatef(rot,1.0f,0.0f,0.0f);
		glRotatef(rot,0.0f,0.0f,1.0f);



   glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_POSITIVE_X, xpositive.texture_id);
   glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_NEGATIVE_X, xnegitive.texture_id);
   glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_POSITIVE_Y, ypositive.texture_id);
   glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_NEGATIVE_Y, ynegitive.texture_id);
   glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_POSITIVE_Z, zpositive.texture_id);
   glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_NEGATIVE_Z, znegitive.texture_id);

   glEnable(GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP);

   glTexGeni(GL_S, GL_TEXTURE_GEN_MODE, GL_REFLECTION_MAP);
   glTexGeni(GL_T, GL_TEXTURE_GEN_MODE, GL_REFLECTION_MAP);
   glTexGeni(GL_R, GL_TEXTURE_GEN_MODE, GL_REFLECTION_MAP);

   glEnable(GL_TEXTURE_GEN_S);
   glEnable(GL_TEXTURE_GEN_T);
   glEnable(GL_TEXTURE_GEN_R);

glDisable(GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP);

The images are loaded it's just the cube shows nothing when I try to enable the cube map flags, does anything else need set? Thanks in advance

It's illegal to call
glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_POSITIVE_X, xpositive.texture_id);

you need to call
glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP, texture_id);

in order to bind 1 single cubemap.
PS : call glGetError to check for errors.

It illegal because GL only accepts GL_TEXTURE_1D, GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_3D or GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP. You seem to think you need to bind the different faces but that's not how cubemaps work.

call
glGenTextures(1, &texture_id);
glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP, texture_id);
and then define the 6 faces of the cubemap.

To define the six faces, you need to do something along these lines.


// bind the cubemap texture
glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP, m_nCubeMapTexture);

// generate no mipmaps
glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP, GL_GENERATE_MIPMAP, GL_FALSE);

// send the temp image to the card
for (int i = 0; i < CM_MAX_TYPES; i++)
{
// send the image to the graphics card
glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_POSITIVE_X_EXT + i,
0,
GL_RGBA8,
m_nDynCubemapSize,
m_nDynCubemapSize,
0,
GL_RGBA,
GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE,
NULL);
}

// setup the cube map texture parameters
glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_EXT, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, GL_LINEAR);
glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_EXT, GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER, GL_LINEAR);
glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_EXT, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_S, GL_CLAMP_TO_EDGE);
glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_EXT, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_T, GL_CLAMP_TO_EDGE);
