These commands are provided by GLUT (the OpenGL Utility Toolkit). GLUT provides commands to create windows, subwindows, and menus; and to handle . The OpenGL programming world owes a tremendous debt to Mr. Mark J. Kilgard for writing the OpenGL Utility Toolkit, or GLUT. The GLUT library of functions. Now that we have a static image on the screen, we want to move to the next step. A changing image. We can specify a function for. GLUT to use.

We need to wait until the user hits the Escape key:. You will see a Tutorials.

Tutorial 1 : Opening a window

It has been designed to be as close to GLUT as possible. On both Linux and Windows, you specify the coordinates of the upper left-hand corner of the window’s decorations.

Download CMake from here and install it Download the source tktorial and unzip it, for instance in C: The rendering position in freeglut is apparently off from GLUT’s position by a few pixels vertically and one or two pixels horizontally.

In GLUT, there was absolutely no way for the application programmer to have control return from the glutMainLoop function to the calling function.

To draw shapes with shaders OpenGL 2 and laterone need to upload vertices and associated normal vectors and texture coordinates to vertex attributes of your shaders.

Freeglut automatically sets the necessary pixel unpack storage modes and restores the existing modes when it has finished.

The Industry’s Foundation for High Performance Graphics

Nonetheless these new versions do have some extensions that make it worth a try. For multi-monitor display setups, freeglut can be told on which monitor the gamemode window should be opened by providing the -display command line option to glutInit.


The glutLeaveMainLoop function causes freeglut to stop the event loop. This allows the application to control its own event loop and still use the freeglut windowing system. The glutWireTeapot and glutSolidTeapot functions render a teapot of the desired size, centered at the origin. These queries return information about the current display mode if in GameMode, or about the requested display mode before entering GameMode:.

More functions return the widths of character strings and the font heights, in pixels for bitmapped fonts and in OpenGL units for the stroke fonts.

The glutWireDodecahedron and glutSolidDodecahedron functions render a dodecahedron whose corners are each a distance of sqrt 3 from the origin. If you know about something that looks like glBeginforget it.

Use these functions to set the indices addresses of the vertex attributes in your currently active shaders before calling the above geometry functions, and FreeGLUT will upload the object geometry there. Furthermore, solid and futorial versions of the original teacup and teaspoon that accompanied the famous Newell teapot. The OpenGL programming world owes a tremendous debt to Mr.

Although GLUT is not being maintained anymore it still serves its tutorkal. The initial title is set when you call glutCreateWindow.

The freeglut Project :: API Documentation

The glutMainLoopEvent function processes a single iteration tutoroal the freeglut event loop. The length of each side is slightly greater than one. Blocks Running the tutorials How to follow these tutorials Opening a window Introduction Welcome to the first tutorial!


One possible arrangement is as follows:. Freeglut calls the mouse wheel callback when the user spins the mouse wheel. If defined at library not client app!

We highly recommend the closed-source binary drivers. Within this loop, freeglut polls the data entry devices keyboard, mouse, etc. Here are the instructions for QtCreator:. In the Build menu, click Build All. If key repeat is globally switched off through glutSetKeyRepeatit cannot be reenabled on a per-window basis with glutIgnoreKeyRepeat. Click on the Configure button.

And whenever we tutoroal on that freeeglut respective event should be triggered. Example for tutorial 2: The other functions render the teacup and teaspoon he used in the table scene figure in his PhD thesis. We suggest using Visual Studio Express for Desktop as a compiler.

The callback function has one argument: Lots of effort has been made to make hutorial code as simple as possible.

Because the font is a stroke font, the width of an individual character is a floating-point number. The glutWireOctahedron and glutSolidOctahedron functions draw a wireframe and solid octahedron eight-sided Platonic solid respectively. Texture coordinates are only generated for the teapot, teacup and teaspoon.

The glutStrokeLengthf function returns the width in model units of a string of characters in the specified stroke font. While freeglut checks for upper or lower case letters, it does not do so for non-alphabetical characters. Notice that it can be anywhere, not necessarily in the same folder. I too would love to know how to set GLUT up with codeblocks.
