a 2D subwindow on top of a 3D subwindow.

I was using glBlendFunc(GL_SRC_ALPHA,GL_ONE_MINUS_SRC_ALPHA), but I still couldn't remove the grey part. Thanks in advance.

PS. The top subwindow was texture mapped with alpha values. Texture Envi mode was GL_MODULATE. Blending was enabled during rendering.

Yes, the image was uploaded as RGBA. It worked fine on other subwindows.

The following is what i have for the top subwindow, which is Subwindow5:

Subwindow5 = glutCreateSubWindow(Subwindow1, SubW1*5.0/6.0,SubH1/6.0,SubW1*5.0/6.0,SubH1*5.0/6.0);
glutInitDisplayMode(GLUT_DOUBLE | GLUT_RGBA | GLUT_ALPHA );
glutDisplayFunc(sub5Display);
glutReshapeFunc(reshape5);
StatsWindow = textureALPHA("subwindow5.raw",512,512,0,TRUE);
glBlendFunc(GL_SRC_ALPHA,GL_ONE_MINUS_SRC_ALPHA);
glutMainLoop();

------------------------------------------------------------------
The display function:

void sub5Display (void)
{
glClear(GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT );
glEnable(GL_BLEND);
SetBackground (W5_width, W5_height, StatsWindow);
glDisable(GL_BLEND);
glutSwapBuffers();
}

Setbackground just make a polygon of W5_width X W5_height, and texture StatsWindow on it. Also, I rendered sub window 5 last.

The grey part is Alpha = 0, am i missing glColor4 or glClearColor?

Thanks again

I think you might be getting foiled by glut here. I'm not sure if glut subwindows will allow blending in between them like that, but I don't use it so I couldn't say.

Try setting the clear color to (x,x,x,0) before you glClear the subwindow, see if that works.
