OpenGL display window black, no skymap

I followed a tutorial to create a skymap. The problem was that the tutorial used glaux and created the window not through a main, so i had to change these couple of things. Everything compiles now but for some reason the display screen is just black. Can someone look at the code to see if there is a logical reason for this. Thanks very much skybox.cpp
#include "stdafx.h"
#include <GL/glut.h>
#include <windows.h>
#include <stdio.h>  //for file access							
#include <gl\gl.h>													
#include "skybox.h"
#include "glbmp.h"


GLuint skybox::LoadTexture(const char * bitmap_file)
{
   GLuint texture = 0; //OpenGL texture to create and return
   glbmp_t bitmap;     //object to fill with data from glbmp
 
   
   if(!glbmp_LoadBitmap(bitmap_file, 0, &bitmap))
   {
      fprintf(stderr, "Error loading bitmap file: %s\n", bitmap_file);
   }
 
   //generate and bind the OpenGL texture
   glGenTextures(1, &texture);
   glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, texture);
 
   //copy data from bitmap into texture
   glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, 3, bitmap.width, bitmap.height,
                0, GL_RGB, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, bitmap.rgb_data);
 
   //set up texture filtering
   glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, GL_LINEAR);
   glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER, GL_LINEAR);
 
   //free the bitmap
   glbmp_FreeBitmap(&bitmap);
 
   return texture;
}
 


void skybox::Init() {

	OFFSET = 1/512.0; //set offset value for skybox

Perhaps I just missed it but where are you filling out the "texture[MAX_TEXTURES];" array with the textures generated in skybox.Init()? If this array isn't getting filled you are passing "junk" data into every call to glBindTexture. (Depends on your compiler as to what the default for int is)

Try filling out the array with tex1, tex2...etc from the Init function.

kk, see i missed that, cheers. I have changed my code to this

but for some odd reason, still black. Do you see what could be causing this?

I am trying to follow this

bool skybox::Load_Texture(unsigned int & aTexture, char * fileName) {

if(!fileName) return false; //if no file name is given return

FILE *aFile = NULL;
AUX_RGBImageRec *image_record = NULL;

if((aFile = fopen(fileName, "rb")) == NULL) return false;

image_record = auxDIBImageLoadA(fileName); //Function to load BMP

if(!image_record) return false; //check that BMP loaded

glGenTextures(1, &aTexture); //generates 1 texture name

glPixelStorei (GL_UNPACK_ALIGNMENT, 1); //sets how the pixels of the texture are stored

glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, aTexture); //binds the name to the target


//build prefiltered textures at different resolutions
gluBuild2DMipmaps(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 3, image_record->sizeX,
image_record->sizeY, GL_RGB, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, image_record->data);

//give the texture its attributes
glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, GL_LINEAR_MIPMAP_NEAREST);
glTexEnvf(GL_TEXTURE_ENV, GL_TEXTURE_ENV_MODE, GL_MODULATE);

// Now we need to free the image data that we loaded since openGL stored it as a texture
if (image_record) { //if we stored data then free the memory
if (image_record->data) { //check if there is any data
free(image_record->data); //free the memory
}
free(image_record); //free the image record
}

return true; //everything should have worked so return true
}


But this is hard to follow as it is using the glaux library which i can no longer use. As a replacemet, i am using this code which is really long and complicated. Is there anything simular i can use which is simular to the above code?
