I am implementing a shadowmapping algorithm, using Framebuffer Objects in order to render-to-texture. My initialization code for the FBO with a DB texture is this:


// setting up the shadowmap frame buffer object
glGenFramebuffersEXT(1, &shadow_map_buffer_object);		
glBindFramebufferEXT(GL_FRAMEBUFFER_EXT, shadow_map_buffer_object);
glGenRenderbuffersEXT(1, &shadow_map_depth_buffer);
glBindRenderbufferEXT(GL_RENDERBUFFER_EXT, shadow_map_buffer_object);
glRenderbufferStorageEXT(GL_RENDERBUFFER_EXT, GL_DEPTH_COMPONENT, 800, 800);
glFramebufferRenderbufferEXT(GL_FRAMEBUFFER_EXT, GL_DEPTH_ATTACHMENT_EXT, GL_RENDERBUFFER_EXT, shadow_map_depth_buffer);
//attaching a texture to the depthbuffer
glGenTextures(1, &shadow_map_texture);
glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, shadow_map_texture);		
glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, GL_DEPTH_COMPONENT24, 800,800, 0, GL_DEPTH_COMPONENT, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, NULL);
glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, GL_LINEAR);			
glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER, GL_LINEAR);
glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_S, GL_CLAMP_TO_EDGE);
glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_T, GL_CLAMP_TO_EDGE);
glFramebufferTexture2DEXT(GL_FRAMEBUFFER_EXT, GL_DEPTH_ATTACHMENT_EXT, GL_TEXTURE_2D, shadow_map_texture, 0);
if ( glCheckFramebufferStatusEXT(GL_FRAMEBUFFER_EXT) == GL_FRAMEBUFFER_COMPLETE_EXT ) std::cout<<"New framebuffer created!"<<"\n";		
glBindFramebufferEXT(GL_FRAMEBUFFER_EXT, 0);

which works OK and gives no errors. However i am stuck in how i am supposed to read a GL_DEPTH_COMPONENT texture inside a fragment program (my ultimate goal for the moment is to be able to visualize the depth buffer). Any ideas?

If you are using

glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_COMPARE_MODE, GL_COMPARE_R_TO_TEXTURE);

then you need to use the sampler2DShadow and if you use

glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_COMPARE_MODE, GL_NONE);

then you use sampler2D

then just get the red component of the texture

float depth = texture2D(depthMap, textureCoord.xyz).r;
