OpenGL OpenGL3.3 Not getting any colors

Recommended Posts

I am pulling my hairs out with this one, not sure what I am doing wrong.
Using 2 simple shaders, compile and links correctly.

#version 330 core
layout(location = 0) in vec3 inPosition;
layout(location = 1) in vec3 inColor;
out vec4 outColor;

void main()
gl_Position = vec4(, 1.0);
outColor = vec4(inColor, 1.0);

#version 330
out vec4 outFragColor;
in vec4 inColor;

void main()
outFragColor = inColor;

ArrayBuffer class header
#include <GL/glew.h>
// representing a openGL buffer object
class ArrayBufferObject
ArrayBufferObject(): mID(0){}
~ArrayBufferObject() {}
// create the buffer
void Create(float T[], GLenum usage)
// generate buffer
glGenBuffers(1, &mID);
glBindBuffer(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, mID);
// fill with data
int byteSize = sizeof(float) * 18;
glBufferData(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, byteSize, T, usage);
// unbind
glBindBuffer(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, 0);
// dispose of the buffer
void Dispose()
// unbind buffer and delete
glBindBuffer(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, 0);
glDeleteBuffers(1, &mID);
void Bind() { glBindBuffer(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, mID); }
void Unbind() { glBindBuffer(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, 0); }
unsigned int GetID() { return mID; }
GLuint mID;

Draw code
[code] // clear buffers
// use program
glVertexAttribPointer(0, 3, GL_FLOAT, GL_FALSE, 0, 0);
glVertexAttribPointer(1, 3, GL_FLOAT, GL_FALSE, 0, (GLvoid*)36);

glDrawArrays(GL_TRIANGLES, 0, 3);
// swap the buffers

This is it, I am using a forward compatible core context.

[code] float mPolygon[] =
-0.8f, -0.8f, 0.0f,
0.8f, -0.8f, 0.0f,
0.0f, 0.8f, 0.0f,
1.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f,
0.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f,
0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f
// create buffer for the triangle
PVB.Create(mPolygon, GL_STATIC_DRAW);[/code]

Oh, just noticed. Variables between shaders are linked by their name. Your [i]outColor[/i] in the vertex shader is not the same as the [i]inColor[/i] in the pixel shader. Thus, you are writing to an unused output variable, and reading from an uninitialized input variable. They must have the same name if you want to link them together.
