hello every one

i finally did it draw a triangle on the screen ,i want now to draw multi-shapes but i don't know where i must add a second  vertex buffer ,


this is the code source :

#include <GL/glew.h>
// include GLEW and new version of GL on Windows
#define GLFW_DLL
#include <GL/glfw3.h> // GLFW helper library
#include <stdio.h>

int main () {
  // start GL context and O/S window using the GLFW helper library
  if (!glfwInit ()) {
    fprintf (stderr, "ERROR: could not start GLFW3\n");
    return 1;

	// uncomment these lines if on Apple OS X
  /*glfwWindowHint (GLFW_CONTEXT_VERSION_MAJOR, 3);

  GLFWwindow* window = glfwCreateWindow (640, 480, "Hello Triangle", NULL, NULL);
  if (!window) {
    fprintf (stderr, "ERROR: could not open window with GLFW3\n");
    return 1;
  glfwMakeContextCurrent (window);

  // start GLEW extension handler
  glewExperimental = GL_TRUE;
  glewInit ();

  // get version info
  const GLubyte* renderer = glGetString (GL_RENDERER); // get renderer string
  const GLubyte* version = glGetString (GL_VERSION); // version as a string
  printf ("Renderer: %s\n", renderer);
  printf ("OpenGL version supported %s\n", version);

  // tell GL to only draw onto a pixel if the shape is closer to the viewer
  glEnable (GL_DEPTH_TEST); // enable depth-testing
  glDepthFunc (GL_LESS); // depth-testing interprets a smaller value as "closer"

float points[] = {
    -0.5f,  0.5f,  0.0f,
    -0.25f, -0.0f,  0.0f,
    -0.75f, -0.0f,  0.0f,


float points01[] = { //the rictangele
    0.25f,  0.25f,  0.0f,
    0.75f, 0.25f,   0.0f,
    0.75f, -0.25f,  0.0f,
    0.25f, -0.25f,  0.0f

//create a vertex buffer and bind it for triangle
GLuint vbo = 0;
glGenBuffers (1, &vbo);
glBindBuffer (GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, vbo);
glBufferData (GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, 9 * sizeof (float), points, GL_STATIC_DRAW);
//create a vertex buffer and bind it for rectangle
GLuint vbo01=0;
glGenBuffers (1, &vbo01);
glBindBuffer (GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, vbo01);
glBufferData (GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, 12 * sizeof (float), points01, GL_STATIC_DRAW);

// Here we create a vertex attribute Object
GLuint vao = 0;
glGenVertexArrays (1, &vao);
glEnableVertexAttribArray (0);
glBindBuffer (GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, vbo);
glVertexAttribPointer (0, 3, GL_FLOAT, GL_FALSE, 0, NULL);
//second vattribute
GLuint vao01 = 0;
glGenVertexArrays (1, &vao01);
glEnableVertexAttribArray (1);
glBindBuffer (GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, vbo01);
glVertexAttribPointer (1, 3, GL_FLOAT, GL_FALSE, 0, NULL);

//shader parts
//vertex shader
const char* vertex_shader =
"#version 400\n"
"in vec3 vp;"
"void main () {"
"  gl_Position = vec4 (vp, 1.0);"
//fragment shader
const char* fragment_shader =
"#version 400\n"
"out vec4 frag_colour;"
"void main () {"
"  frag_colour = vec4 (0.8, 0.5, 0.5, 1.0);"
//load shader

GLuint vs = glCreateShader (GL_VERTEX_SHADER);
glShaderSource (vs, 1, &vertex_shader, NULL);
glCompileShader (vs);

//load fragment shader
GLuint fs = glCreateShader (GL_FRAGMENT_SHADER);
glShaderSource (fs, 1, &fragment_shader, NULL);
glCompileShader (fs);
//create the program
GLuint shader_programme = glCreateProgram ();

//attach the vertex shader and fragment shader to the program
glAttachShader (shader_programme, fs);
glAttachShader (shader_programme, vs);

//link the program
glLinkProgram (shader_programme);

while (!glfwWindowShouldClose (window)) {
  // wipe the drawing surface clear
  glUseProgram (shader_programme);
  glBindVertexArray (vao);

  // draw points 0-3 from the currently bound VAO with current in-use shader
  glBindVertexArray (vao01);
  glDrawArrays (GL_TRIANGLES, 1,3);

  // draw points 0-3 from the currently bound VAO with current in-use shader
  glDrawArrays (GL_QUADS,0,4);
  // update other events like input handling
  glfwPollEvents ();
  // put the stuff we've been drawing onto the display
  glfwSwapBuffers (window);

// close GL context and any other GLFW resources
  return 0;

Looking at what you have dome you have copy & pasted from a site without understanding what you have done try following www.arcsynthesis.org/gltut . Try changing your GL_QUADS to GL_TRIANGLE_STRIP but you have to bind each vbo to each vao if thats the way you want to do it. Work through the tutorials on the site i just gave you and understand each step you take
