i am currently trying to setup the viewing in a small OpenGL4 program.
I use the glm library for the matrix/vector calculations.

My problem is that the viewing seems to be messed up and i haven't been able to find out why.

You can find an image of the "broken" result here: http://imgur.com/NhPqF

My code looks like this:

VertexArray* dataVa;
VertexBufferObject* positionVbo;
VertexBufferObject* colorVbo;
glm::mat4 p, v;

void init() {
if (glewInit() != GLEW_OK) {
emit debug("Failed to init glew");


void initView() {
p = glm::perspective(45.0, 1.0, 1.0, 100.0);
v = glm::lookAt(glm::vec3(0.0, 0.0, 10.0), glm::vec3(0.0, 0.0, 0.0), glm::vec3(0.0, 1.0, 0.0));

void initData() {
int dataSize = 9;
float positionData[] = { -0.8f, -0.8f, 0.0f, 0.8f, -0.8f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.8f, 0.0f };
positionVbo = new VertexBufferObject;
positionVbo->setData(positionData, dataSize);

float colorData[] = { 1.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f };
colorVbo = new VertexBufferObject;
colorVbo->setData(colorData, dataSize);

dataVa = new VertexArray;
dataVa->setData(positionVbo->id(), 0, 3);

dataVa->setData(colorVbo->id(), 1, 3);

void initShader() {
shaderProgram = new ShaderProgram;
QString msg;
msg = shaderProgram->
emit debug(msg + " (vertex)");

msg = shaderProgram->
emit debug(msg + " (fragment)");

shaderProgram->createVariable(0, "VertexPosition");
shaderProgram->createVariable(1, "VertexColor");

QString linkMsg = shaderProgram->getLinkStatus();
emit debug(linkMsg);

void initializeGL() {
glClearColor(0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0);

void resizeGL(int width, int height) {
glViewport(0, 0, width, height);

void paintGL() {
shaderProgram->createUniformMat4(&v[0][0], "View");
shaderProgram->createUniformMat4(&p[0][0], "Proj");
dataVa->draw(GL_TRIANGLES, 0, 3);

My shaders look like this:

Vertex Shader:

#version 400

in vec3 VertexPosition;
in vec3 VertexColor;

out vec3 Color;

uniform mat4 View;
uniform mat4 Proj;

void main()
Color = VertexColor;
gl_Position = Proj * View * vec4(VertexPosition, 1.0);

Fragment Shader:

#version 400

in vec3 Color;
out vec4 FragColor;

void main() {
FragColor = vec4(Color, 1.0);

Thanks in advance.

EDIT: The correct result should look more like this: http://imgur.com/Pfpyh
The correct triangle was rendered via immediate mode, please ignore the messages in the log widget.

I have fixed the problem. The root cause of the problem was the draw method, the viewing is correct.
