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.

Notice that it can be anywhere, not necessarily in the same folder. The glutMainLoopEvent function causes freeglut to process one iteration’s worth of events in its event loop. Vertex data retrieved from: The glutIdleFunc function sets the global idle callback.

The freeglut Project :: API Documentation

The glutStrokeLengthf function returns the width in model units of the given character string in the specified stroke font. Freeglut sets the current window to the window which is active when the callback is invoked.

Kilgard stopped supporting the GLUT library inhaving moved on to bigger and better things, this started to become a problem. It calls glTranslatef to advance the cursor by the width of a character and to render carriage returns when appropriate. Your Visual Studio project is now created. Before the first call to glutStrokeCharacter the application program should call the OpenGL transformation positioning and scaling functions to set the position of the character in the window.


There is considerable confusion about the “right thing to do” concerning window tutoriak and position. The glutLeaveMainLoop function causes freeglut to stop the event loop. Two functions have been added to render a wireframe and a solid rhombic dodecahedron.

If unsure, read the instruction for Windows and try to adapt them. The window can thus be retrieved in the callback using glutGetWindow. If you like command line best, cd to the right directory.

If defined at library not client app! After an application has finished initializing its windows and menus, it enters an event loop. The glutWireCube and glutSolidCube functions render a cube of the desired size, centered at the origin.

GLUT Tutorial

The glutBitmapHeight function returns the height of a character in the specified bitmap font. Since the tutoriall library was developed in order to update GLUT, it is natural that there will be some differences between the two. Due to 2 bugs one in C:: We suggest using Visual Studio Express for Desktop as a compiler.

The glutWireTorus and glutSolidTorus functions render a torus centered at the origin frewglut the modeling coordinate system.

In Tutorial 2, you will learn how to actually draw a triangle. It’s not mentioned before Tutorial 02, but it can cause flickering, so it’s there nonetheless. Running the tutorials You should run the tutorials directly from the right directory: The authors have taken care in preparation of this documentation but make no expressed or implied freevlut of any kind and assumes no responsibility for errors or omissions.

The glutStrokeLength function returns the width in model units of a string of characters in the specified stroke font, rounded to an int.

Freeglut calls the mouse wheel tutorkal when the user spins the mouse wheel. Stopping the program this way is preferable to simply calling exit from within a callback because this allows freeglut to free allocated memory and otherwise clean up after itself. Please do comment if something is not completely clear. You can now forget about CMake.

Tutorial 1 : Opening a window

This way, you will be able to understand everything even if you only know Java. It does not use any display lists in it rendering in bitmap fonts.

Freeglut also invokes the callback when the user releases the Control, Alt, or Shift keys, among others. Click on the hammer on the bottom.

If the string contains one or more carriage returns, freeglut calculates the widths in pixels of the lines separately and returns the largest width.
