Hi, I'm new with VB. NET but I have been using GL and C++ for 10 years.
I installed OpenTK. The thing is that VB .NET can't compile my code because it says it can't recognize SwapBuffers.

Can some tell me what I need to #include?
Or perhaps a sample project, an example, anything at all.

Thanks in advanced.
PS : I'm using Visual Studio 2010 Express.

1. Have you added OpenTK as a reference?

2. You say it doesn't recognize 'SwapBuffers', of what class?

3. You did add a statement like 'Imports OpenTK' ?

3. Could you show us the code? this might help us.

The code is short since I just started.

"2. You say it doesn't recognize 'SwapBuffers', of what class?"
I come from a C++, VB6, Win32 API, MFC, OpenGL. SwapBuffers is a windows API function. It is in gdi32.dll
I don't know how things are done in VB.NET, that's why I ask.

Imports OpenTK
Imports OpenTK.GLControl
Imports OpenTK.Platform
Imports OpenTK.Graphics.OpenGL

Public Class Form1

Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load

End Sub

Private Sub GlControl1_Paint(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.PaintEventArgs) Handles GlControl1.Paint
GL.Clear(ClearBufferMask.ColorBufferBit Or ClearBufferMask.DepthBufferBit)

GL.Vertex3(-1.0F, -1.0F, 1.0F)
GL.Vertex3(1.0F, -1.0F, 1.0F)
GL.Vertex3(1.0F, 1.0F, 1.0F)
GL.Vertex3(-1.0F, 1.0F, 1.0F)


End Sub

Private Sub GlControl1_Resize(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles GlControl1.Resize
'Dim glrc As HGLRC
'glrc = wglGetCurrentContext()
End Sub

Private Sub ResizeGL()
GL.Viewport(0, 0, GlControl1.Width, GlControl1.Height)
GL.MatrixMode(MatrixMode.Projection) ' Select The Projection Matrix
GL.MatrixMode(MatrixMode.Modelview) ' Select The Modelview Matrix
GL.LoadIdentity() ' Reset The Modelview Matrix
End Sub

End Class
