Well i've been trying to build an easy 'picking' sample out of NeHe's tutorial 33&7&12.
I never programmend that selection thing before so i don't have clue what went wrong there. choose doesn't return the correct name, the rest of it is ok. int DrawGLText(GLvoid) { GetCursorPos(&ptCursor); ScreenToClient(hWnd, &ptCursor); mouseX = ptCursor.x; mouseY = ptCursor.y; glLoadIdentity(); // Reset The Current Modelview Matrix glTranslatef(0.0f,0.0f,-1.0f); // Move One Unit Into The Screen glColor3f(1.0f,1.0f,1.0f); glRasterPos2f(-0.54f, 0.39f); glPrint("X = %i Y = %i L= %i F= %i S=%i H=%i", mouseX,mouseY,light,filter,Global_Selections,Global_Hits); // Print GL Text To The Screen return TRUE; } int DrawGLMap(GLvoid) { glLoadIdentity(); // Reset The View glTranslatef(0.0f,0.0f,-20.0f); glTranslatef(-6.0f,0.0f,0.0); glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, texture[filter]); glColor3f(1.0f,1.0f,1.0f); // float tex_x,tex_y; for (int jj=1;jj<6;jj++) { glTranslatef(2.0f,0.0f,0.0); glBegin(GL_QUADS); // Front Face glLoadName(jj); glNormal3f( 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f); glTexCoord2f( 0.0f, 0.0f); glVertex3f(-1.0f, -1.0f, 0.0f); glTexCoord2f(0.25f, 0.0f); glVertex3f( 1.0f, -1.0f, 0.0f); glTexCoord2f(0.25f, 0.25f); glVertex3f( 1.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f); glTexCoord2f( 0.0f, 0.25f); glVertex3f(-1.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f); glEnd(); } return TRUE; } void Selection(void) // This Is Where Selection Is Done { GLuint buffer[512]; // Set Up A Selection Buffer GLint hits; // The Number Of Objects That We Selected // The Size Of The Viewport. [0] Is , [1] Is , [2] Is , [3] Is GLint viewport[4]; // This Sets The Array To The Size And Location Of The Screen Relative To The Window glGetIntegerv(GL_VIEWPORT, viewport); glSelectBuffer(512, buffer); // Tell OpenGL To Use Our Array For Selection // Puts OpenGL In Selection Mode. Nothing Will Be Drawn. Object ID's and Extents Are Stored In The Buffer. (void) glRenderMode(GL_SELECT); glInitNames(); // Initializes The Name Stack glPushName(0); // Push 0 (At Least One Entry) Onto The Stack glMatrixMode(GL_PROJECTION); // Selects The Projection Matrix glPushMatrix(); // Push The Projection Matrix glLoadIdentity(); // Resets The Matrix // This Creates A Matrix That Will Zoom Up To A Small Portion Of The Screen, Where The Mouse Is. gluPickMatrix((GLdouble) mouseX, (GLdouble) (viewport[3]-mouseY), 1.0f, 1.0f, viewport); // Apply The Perspective Matrix gluPerspective(45.0f, (GLfloat) (viewport[2]-viewport[0])/(GLfloat) (viewport[3]-viewport[1]), 0.1f, 100.0f); glMatrixMode(GL_MODELVIEW); // Select The Modelview Matrix DrawGLMap(); // Render The Targets To The Selection Buffer glMatrixMode(GL_PROJECTION); // Select The Projection Matrix glPopMatrix(); // Pop The Projection Matrix glMatrixMode(GL_MODELVIEW); // Select The Modelview Matrix hits=glRenderMode(GL_RENDER); // Switch To Render Mode, Find Out How Many // Objects Were Drawn Where The Mouse Was if (hits > 0) // If There Were More Than 0 Hits { int choose = buffer[3]; // Make Our Selection The First Object int depth = buffer[1]; // Store How Far Away It Is for (int loop = 1; loop < hits; loop++) // Loop Through All The Detected Hits { // If This Object Is Closer To Us Than The One We Have Selected if (buffer[loop*4+1] < GLuint(depth)) { choose = buffer[loop*4+3]; // Select The Closer Object depth = buffer[loop*4+1]; // Store How Far Away It Is } } Global_Selections = choose; } Global_Hits = hits; } int DrawGLScene(GLvoid) // Here's Where We Do All The Drawing { glClear(GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT | GL_DEPTH_BUFFER_BIT); // Clear Screen And Depth Buffer // Light&Texture OFF glDisable(GL_LIGHT1); if (light==1){glDisable(GL_LIGHTING);} glDisable(GL_TEXTURE_2D); DrawGLText(); // Light&Texture ON glEnable(GL_LIGHT1); if (light==1){glEnable(GL_LIGHTING);} glEnable(GL_TEXTURE_2D); DrawGLMap(); Selection(); return TRUE; // Keep Going } The whole source can be found here.

I i found the problem - it was the namestack. That 'thing' seems to be a bit bugy i must do a glBegin(GL_LINES);glEnd(); after glLoadName(BLAH) to get my progy run smooth :rolleyes: d'oh!

Its done wrong in the NeHe sample 33 too btw.
