    OpenGL and 3D scenes in Visual C++


    I'm new to OpenGL and would like to know how I integrate a 3D scene in a GUI/windows form in Visual C++?

    Does there exist a basic opensource example (where buttons like zoom, rotation and so on has been integrated in the GUI)?

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: OpenGL and 3D scenes in Visual C++

    You can use Glut toolkit for display and need glut32.dll , glut.lib
    openGL is integrated to C/C++

    second way is to go for Qt toolkit that is platform independent. [Linux and Win]

    third option is to use MFC for display ( painstaking one)

    For examples refer to red book or random serf.

    Use SDL!
    Qt it's easy too use, but it's a little ahard to setup un Visual C++(although Qt it's a very powerful framework).Glut it's just good for the OpenGL samples, but not for a good GUI design.

    Look at the turial in Nehe :
