OpenGL doesn't render my triangle

Recommended Posts

Somehow this code is not working. I don't know why and I also don't get any OpenGL errors.

#include <GL\glew.h>
#include <GLFW\glfw3.h>
#include <GL\glew.h>
#include <glm.hpp>
#include <iostream>
#include <fstream>
#include <string>
#include <vector>
#define WIDTH 800
#define HEIGHT 600
#define TITLE "Dynamic"
GLFWwindow* window;
int vaoID;
float vertices[] = {-0.5f, 0.5f, 0, -0.5f, -0.5f, 0, 0.5f, -0.5f, 0, 0,};
GLushort indices[] = { 0, 1, 2};
void update() {
GLuint vertexBuffer;
GLuint indexBuffer;
GLuint vao;
glGenBuffers(1, &vertexBuffer);
glGenBuffers(1, &indexBuffer);
glGenVertexArrays(1, &vao);
glBindBuffer(GL_ELEMENT_ARRAY_BUFFER, indexBuffer);
glBindBuffer(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, vertexBuffer);
glBufferData(GL_ELEMENT_ARRAY_BUFFER, sizeof(indices), indices, GL_STATIC_DRAW);
glBufferData(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, sizeof(vertices), vertices, GL_STATIC_DRAW);
glVertexAttribPointer(0, 3, GL_FLOAT, false, 0, 0);
while (!glfwWindowShouldClose(window)) {
glClearColor(1, 0, 0, 1);
glDrawElements(GL_TRIANGLES, sizeof(indices), GL_UNSIGNED_SHORT, nullptr);
std::cout << glGetError() << std::endl;
int main() {
if (!glfwInit())
std::cout << "Couldn't initialize GLFW!" << std::endl;
window = glfwCreateWindow(WIDTH, HEIGHT, TITLE, NULL, NULL);
if (GLEW_OK != glewInit())
std::cout << "GLEW is not working!" << std::endl;
std::cout << "Your GL version: " << glGetString(GL_VERSION) << std::endl;

You're drawing the triangle after you have swapped the back and front buffers. You need to first clear, then draw, and then swap the buffers.

Thank you, now it is working!
