Afternoon all,

 

I have a class called Texture, that I need to be able to initialize once on my programs startup with a texture, and then at runtime replace the texture with one of the users choosing from their HDD. Initializing the Texture works fine, and the initial texture displays as it should, being given a name by glGenTextures, and then binding the pixel data under that name. That is done in the following functions:

Texture::Texture(string filename)
{
//textureID[0]=0;


const char* fnPtr = filename.c_str(); //our image loader accepts a ptr to a char, not a string
//printf(fnPtr);


lodepng::load_file(buffer, fnPtr);//load the file into a buffer


unsigned error = lodepng::decode(image,w,h,buffer);//lodepng's decode function will load the pixel data into image vector from the buffer
//display any errors with the texture
if(error)
{
cout << "\ndecoder error " << error << ": " << lodepng_error_text(error) <<endl;
}
//execute the code that'll throw exceptions to do with the images size
checkPOT(w);
checkPOT(h);




//loop through and //printf our pixel data
/*for(GLuint i = 0; i<image.size(); i+=4)
{
//printf("\n%i,%i,%i,%i,", image.at(i),image.at(i+1),image.at(i+2),image.at(i+3));


}*/


////printf("\nImage size is %i", image.size());


//image now contains our pixeldata. All ready for OpenGL to do its thing


//let's get this texture up in the video memory
texGLInit();


Draw_From_Corner = CENTER; 
}

void Texture::texGLInit()
{
glGenTextures(1, &textureID[0]);
////printf("\ntextureID = %u", textureID[0]);

glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, textureID[0]);//evrything we're about to do is about this texture
glPixelStorei(GL_UNPACK_ALIGNMENT, 1);
glTexParameteri (GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, GL_NEAREST);
glTexEnvf(GL_TEXTURE_ENV, GL_TEXTURE_ENV_MODE, GL_MODULATE);
glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, GL_RGBA8,w,h,0, GL_RGBA, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, &image[0]);
//we COULD free the image vectors memory right about now.
image.clear();
}
 

Upon calling my draw function this texture displays just fine. However, upon clicking "import new spritesheet", an openFileDialogue appears and the user selects a new file. The following code executes, which should (in theory) delete the texture name (stored in the GLUint 'TextureID' array), and make it available for use again, allowing us to bind new texture data under that name. 

void Texture::reloadTexture(string filename)
{
	//first and foremost clear the image and buffer vectors back down to nothing so we can start afresh 
	buffer.clear();
	image.clear();
	w = 0;
	h = 0;
	//also delete the texture name we were using before
	glDeleteTextures(1, &textureID[0]);

	const char* fnPtr = filename.c_str(); //our image loader accepts a ptr to a char, not a string
	//printf(fnPtr);

	lodepng::load_file(buffer, fnPtr);//load the file into a buffer

	unsigned error = lodepng::decode(image,w,h,buffer);//lodepng's decode function will load the pixel data into image vector from the buffer
	//display any errors with the texture
	if(error)
	{
		cout << "\ndecoder error " << error << ": " << lodepng_error_text(error) <<endl;
	}
	//execute the code that'll throw exceptions to do with the images size
	checkPOT(w);
	checkPOT(h);
	


	//loop through and //printf our pixel data
	/*for(GLuint i = 0; i<image.size(); i+=4)
	{
	//printf("\n%i,%i,%i,%i,", image.at(i),image.at(i+1),image.at(i+2),image.at(i+3));

	}*/

	////printf("\nImage size is %i", image.size());

	//image vector now contains our pixeldata. All ready for OGL to do its thing

	//let's get this texture up in the video memory OpenGL
	texGLSecondaryInit();

	Draw_From_Corner = CENTER;
}

void Texture::texGLSecondaryInit()
{
	//PFNGLBINDBUFFERARBPROC glBindBuffer = NULL;                  // VBO Bind Procedure
	

	glGenTextures(1, &textureID[0]);
	////printf("\ntextureID = %u", textureID[0]);

	glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, textureID[0]);//evrything we're about to do is about this texture
	glPixelStorei(GL_UNPACK_ALIGNMENT, 1);
	glTexParameteri (GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, GL_NEAREST);
	glTexEnvf(GL_TEXTURE_ENV, GL_TEXTURE_ENV_MODE, GL_MODULATE);
	//glBindBuffer(GL_PIXEL_UNPACK_BUFFER,0);
	glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, GL_RGBA8,w,h,0, GL_RGBA, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, &image[0]);
	
	//we COULD free the image vectors memory right about now.
	image.clear();
}

*Note the call to 'glDeleteTextures' close to the start of 'reloadTexture()'.*

What should happen at this point is that the user now sees their selected texture being displayed. But what actually happens is that the user sees the old texture (the one that loads at startup), with the new texture's (the one they selected) dimensions. Meaning that despite my call to glDeleteTextures, the deleted texture's pixel data still exists in one of openGL's buffers somewhereangry.png  I can't figure out where, nor why it would still be there after i have not only deleted it, but also attempted to bind a different files data over the top of it.

 

Thanks for reading, and I'd appreciate any light that could be shed on why openGL would hang-on to the old data.

 

P.S. In the function 'texGLSecondaryInit()' , you may notice commented out calls to glBindBuffer(). This was suggested to me as a way to purge the pixel buffer on another board. It caused Access Violation Errors all over the shop. However, I've left it on display here, in case it helps you understand what I'm trying and failing to do.

Also, this is my first post here on GDNet. I was unable to find the forum rules before posting, so apologies if i have violated any of them.

Are you use the that the pixel alignment is 1 in the texture you are trying to load. Also another thing you can do is put glGetError() between your call and see where it is failing.

The only thing that glDeleteTextures promises is that the tetxure name will be available for reuse (via a subsequent call to glGenTextures); it doesn't promise that it will delete the pixel data, and the driver is perfectly free to keep that data hanging around for subsequent reuse.  This can be a good thing as the driver may be able to get away without having to allocate a new block of storage - "here's a block that's no longer being used, just hand it back".

 

So not deleting the pixel data is expected behaviour, but when you make the next call to glTexImage (assuming that you've bound the correct texture, of course) then the texture should be completely respecified.

 

The only sensible explanation here is that your glTexImage call is somehow failing.  As suggested, try a few glGetError calls and double-check your parameters.

Check the glPixelStore call in the OP's code...

I can't see why they wouldn't be. They're both .png files, loaded into openGL using the same image loader. They also both worked on a previous project using the virtually same setup. However in that old project, they were both created at the startup of my program as separate instances of my 'Texture' class. The reason I can't do that here, is because i wish for the user to be able to select a new texture at runtime from a file. 

 

Also placing glGetError after my glDeleteTextures call, returns no errors.  Like so.

void Texture::reloadTexture(string filename)
{
	//first and foremost clear the image and buffer vectors back down to nothing so we can start afresh 
	buffer.clear();
	image.clear();
	w = 0;
	h = 0;
	//also delete the texture name we were using before
	glDeleteTextures(1, &textureID[0]);

	GLenum err;
	while ((err = glGetError()) != GL_NO_ERROR) {
		printf("OpenGL error: %u", err);
	}


	const char* fnPtr = filename.c_str(); //our image loader accepts a ptr to a char, not a string
	//printf(fnPtr);

	lodepng::load_file(buffer, fnPtr);//load the file into a buffer

	unsigned error = lodepng::decode(image,w,h,buffer);//lodepng's decode function will load the pixel data into image vector from the buffer
	//display any errors with the texture
	if(error)
	{
		cout << "\ndecoder error " << error << ": " << lodepng_error_text(error) <<endl;
	}
	//execute the code that'll throw exceptions to do with the images size
	checkPOT(w);
	checkPOT(h);
	


	//loop through and //printf our pixel data
	/*for(GLuint i = 0; i<image.size(); i+=4)
	{
	//printf("\n%i,%i,%i,%i,", image.at(i),image.at(i+1),image.at(i+2),image.at(i+3));

	}*/

	////printf("\nImage size is %i", image.size());

	//image now contains our pixeldata. All ready for  to do its thing

	//let's get this texture up in the video memoryOpenGL
	texGLSecondaryInit();

	Draw_From_Corner = CENTER;
}

The same goes for after the call to glGenTextures in texGLSecondaryInit(). No errors to report.sad.png

Ok I've done some further testing on this matter today. glGetErrors after my glTexImage2d call returns no errors. 

 

Even if, rather than changing the Texture via a call to:

myTex->reloadTexture("filename");

I just create a brand new one like so:

mytex = new Texture("filename");

 It still simply resizes the texture. 

 

Note: that this new method that I've tried means that glDeleteTextures would never even be called. Meaning that OGL would not free the TextureID (or Texture Name) in use for the first texture for re use, therefore openGL would give a unique name to the new Texture when the constructor was called.

 

Knowing this, I have observed the TextureID variable.

 

After the very first call to glGenTextures, textureID[0] = 1    |---->Seems normal.

 

After the myTex = new texture("filename"); call (which calls glGenTextures again), textureID[0] = 1    |----> Woah! hold it!!

 

At this point '1' should no longer be available as a unique texture name, as it was previously created for the first texture and glDeleteTextures was never called.

 

Can anybody tell me why glGenTextures would refuse to give me a unique name? Usually this problem comes because glGenTextures is called before a context is established, and glGenTextures gives you '0' as a name. But we know i have a legit context, as I draw to it!

 

Also, I have put glGetErrors as I have above after glGenTextures. No errors dry.png

GOT IT! You see above, where i wrote:

 

"But we know i have a legit context, as I draw to it!"

 

Turns out I didn't. Let me explain.

 

In my program, I have TWO OpenGL views. Running on TWO OpenGL contexts. Which i must switch between using WGLMakeCurrent(), in order to make them both flush, swapbuffers individually.

 

The OpenGL view i refer to in this question, is the first to be made current. It has the first texture bound and then it is drawn. At this point the second OGL view is made current, has some stuff happen to it (not important), and then is drawn. 

 

So when I attempt to load and bind a second texture to my first openGL view, I've pulled the "old switcheroo" on myself and am trying to bind it to my second view's context (because it is current at this point). Which explains  why the first context still had the old pixel data in it. As I'd technically never called glDeletetextures on ittongue.png biggrin.png 

A quick call to wglMakeCurrent(handleInHere, parentwindowhere), before myTex->reloadTexture("filename") call, and my textures are loading and replacing themselves at my beckoned call.

 

Thanks for your previous help guys.

      For those that don't know me. I am the individual who's two videos are listed here under setup for https://wiki.libsdl.org/Tutorials
      I also run grhmedia.com where I host the projects and code for the tutorials I have online.
      Recently, I received a notice from youtube they will be implementing their new policy in protecting video content as of which I won't be monetized till I meat there required number of viewers and views each month.

      Frankly, I'm pretty sick of youtube. I put up a video and someone else learns from it and puts up another video and because of the way youtube does their placement they end up with more views.
      Even guys that clearly post false information such as one individual who said GLEW 2.0 was broken because he didn't know how to compile it. He in short didn't know how to modify the script he used because he didn't understand make files and how the requirements of the compiler and library changes needed some different flags.

      At the end of the month when they implement this I will take down the content and host on my own server purely and it will be a paid system and or patreon. 

      I get my videos may be a bit dry, I generally figure people are there to learn how to do something and I rather not waste their time. 
      I used to also help people for free even those coming from the other videos. That won't be the case any more. I used to just take anyone emails and work with them my email is posted on the site.

      I don't expect to get the required number of subscribers in that time or increased views. Even if I did well it wouldn't take care of each reoccurring month.
      I figure this is simpler and I don't plan on putting some sort of exorbitant fee for a monthly subscription or the like.
      I was thinking on the lines of a few dollars 1,2, and 3 and the larger subscription gets you assistance with the content in the tutorials if needed that month.
      Maybe another fee if it is related but not directly in the content. 
      The fees would serve to cut down on the number of people who ask for help and maybe encourage some of the people to actually pay attention to what is said rather than do their own thing. That actually turns out to be 90% of the issues. I spent 6 hours helping one individual last week I must have asked him 20 times did you do exactly like I said in the video even pointed directly to the section. When he finally sent me a copy of the what he entered I knew then and there he had not. I circled it and I pointed out that wasn't what I said to do in the video. I didn't tell him what was wrong and how I knew that way he would go back and actually follow what it said to do. He then reported it worked. Yea, no kidding following directions works. But hey isn't alone and well its part of the learning process.

      So the point of this isn't to be a gripe session. I'm just looking for a bit of feed back. Do you think the fees are unreasonable?
      Should I keep the youtube channel and do just the fees with patreon or do you think locking the content to my site and require a subscription is an idea.

      I'm just looking at the fact it is unrealistic to think youtube/google will actually get stuff right or that youtube viewers will actually bother to start looking for more accurate videos.

      The Khronos™ Group, an open consortium of leading hardware and software companies, announces from the SIGGRAPH 2017 Conference the immediate public availability of the OpenGL® 4.6 specification. OpenGL 4.6 integrates the functionality of numerous ARB and EXT extensions created by Khronos members AMD, Intel, and NVIDIA into core, including the capability to ingest SPIR-V™ shaders.
      SPIR-V is a Khronos-defined standard intermediate language for parallel compute and graphics, which enables content creators to simplify their shader authoring and management pipelines while providing significant source shading language flexibility. OpenGL 4.6 adds support for ingesting SPIR-V shaders to the core specification, guaranteeing that SPIR-V shaders will be widely supported by OpenGL implementations.
      OpenGL 4.6 adds the functionality of these ARB extensions to OpenGL’s core specification:
      GL_ARB_gl_spirv and GL_ARB_spirv_extensions to standardize SPIR-V support for OpenGL GL_ARB_indirect_parameters and GL_ARB_shader_draw_parameters for reducing the CPU overhead associated with rendering batches of geometry GL_ARB_pipeline_statistics_query and GL_ARB_transform_feedback_overflow_querystandardize OpenGL support for features available in Direct3D GL_ARB_texture_filter_anisotropic (based on GL_EXT_texture_filter_anisotropic) brings previously IP encumbered functionality into OpenGL to improve the visual quality of textured scenes GL_ARB_polygon_offset_clamp (based on GL_EXT_polygon_offset_clamp) suppresses a common visual artifact known as a “light leak” associated with rendering shadows GL_ARB_shader_atomic_counter_ops and GL_ARB_shader_group_vote add shader intrinsics supported by all desktop vendors to improve functionality and performance GL_KHR_no_error reduces driver overhead by allowing the application to indicate that it expects error-free operation so errors need not be generated In addition to the above features being added to OpenGL 4.6, the following are being released as extensions:
      GL_KHR_parallel_shader_compile allows applications to launch multiple shader compile threads to improve shader compile throughput WGL_ARB_create_context_no_error and GXL_ARB_create_context_no_error allow no error contexts to be created with WGL or GLX that support the GL_KHR_no_error extension “I’m proud to announce OpenGL 4.6 as the most feature-rich version of OpenGL yet. We've brought together the most popular, widely-supported extensions into a new core specification to give OpenGL developers and end users an improved baseline feature set. This includes resolving previous intellectual property roadblocks to bringing anisotropic texture filtering and polygon offset clamping into the core specification to enable widespread implementation and usage,” said Piers Daniell, chair of the OpenGL Working Group at Khronos. “The OpenGL working group will continue to respond to market needs and work with GPU vendors to ensure OpenGL remains a viable and evolving graphics API for all its customers and users across many vital industries.“
      The OpenGL 4.6 specification can be found at https://khronos.org/registry/OpenGL/index_gl.php. The GLSL to SPIR-V compiler glslang has been updated with GLSL 4.60 support, and can be found at https://github.com/KhronosGroup/glslang.
      Sophisticated graphics applications will also benefit from a set of newly released extensions for both OpenGL and OpenGL ES to enable interoperability with Vulkan and Direct3D. These extensions are named:
      GL_EXT_memory_object GL_EXT_memory_object_fd GL_EXT_memory_object_win32 GL_EXT_semaphore GL_EXT_semaphore_fd GL_EXT_semaphore_win32 GL_EXT_win32_keyed_mutex They can be found at: https://khronos.org/registry/OpenGL/index_gl.php
      Industry Support for OpenGL 4.6
      “With OpenGL 4.6 our customers have an improved set of core features available on our full range of OpenGL 4.x capable GPUs. These features provide improved rendering quality, performance and functionality. As the graphics industry’s most popular API, we fully support OpenGL and will continue to work closely with the Khronos Group on the development of new OpenGL specifications and extensions for our customers. NVIDIA has released beta OpenGL 4.6 drivers today at https://developer.nvidia.com/opengl-driver so developers can use these new features right away,” said Bob Pette, vice president, Professional Graphics at NVIDIA.
      "OpenGL 4.6 will be the first OpenGL release where conformant open source implementations based on the Mesa project will be deliverable in a reasonable timeframe after release. The open sourcing of the OpenGL conformance test suite and ongoing work between Khronos and X.org will also allow for non-vendor led open source implementations to achieve conformance in the near future," said David Airlie, senior principal engineer at Red Hat, and developer on Mesa/X.org projects.

      Hi,
      I have an OpenGL application but without possibility to wite own shaders.
      I need to perform small VS modification - is possible to do it in an alternative way? Do we have apps or driver modifictions which will catch the shader sent to GPU and override it?
