I'm trying to load and render a model with texture, everything looks correct except the texture part, being completely black. I'm using DeviL as a textureloader and it seems to work correctly (at the very least not giving any errors). I've tried to only paste the relevant code concerning textures.

In the constructor of the class handling textures I do


The 2D-texture loading function where Textures is a std::map

Texture2D GLRenderer::LoadTexture2DFromFile( const char *_FileName )
Texture2D texture = 0;
texture = m_Textures[_FileName ];
if(texture!= 0)
return texture;

char* temp = const_cast<char*>(_FileName);
GLuint temp2 = ilutGLLoadImage(temp);
m_Textures[_FileName ] = temp2;
return temp2;

Fragmentshader code

#version 130

precision highp float;

uniform sampler2D ColorMapSampler;

in vec3 VertexPos;
in vec3 Normal;
in vec2 TexCoord;

out vec4 FragColor;

void main()
vec4 texel = texture2D(ColorMapSampler,TexCoord);
FragColor =texel; //vec4(TexCoord.x, TexCoord.y,0,1);//texel;//vec4(Normal.x,Normal.y,Normal.z,1.0);//vec4(1.0,0.5,0.5,1.0);

In my code I do for the sampler

glUniform1i(glGetUniformLocation(m_ShaderProgram, "ColorMapSampler"),0);

and setting the texture

GLuint text = textureData->GetTexture(0);
glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, text);
glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0);

I get no glErrors and no errors from Devil, and I have no clue about what I'm doing wrong, I've tried several different image-formats but none worked. I think it is the setting of textures to shader that isn't working correctly bacause I've tried a few other textureloading functions from different sites. So please help if you have any idea of what could be wrong!
