A Simple OpenGL Stipple Polygon Example using Glut.h

Introduction

This is a program from "OpenGL Programming Guide (Third Edition). It is an example of using stipples (line patterns) in polygons. I also did add another stipple pattern that I created myself. This pattern is my initials which is EP (Ercan Polat).

Using the Code

Make sure to install the GLUT library. If you don't know how to do it, go to my first article. After installing the Glut.h file, just compile the code and execute it.

// StipplingPolygons.cpp : Defines the entry point for the console application.
// Ercan Polat: 02/04/2008
// Note: This program is an example of "OpenGL Programming Guide (Third Edition)". I did
// add a stippling part with my initials (EP). 
// Project Description: This project creates a simple OpenGl window using GLUT library.
// The program is an example of stipple patterns used on rectangle polygons.

#include "stdafx.h"
#include <GL/glut.h>

// function that creates the stipple patterns and rectangular polygons.
void display(void)
{
    // Stipple pattern of my initials (EP)
GLubyte myInitial[] = {
    0xff, 0x01, 0x00, 0x01, 0x00, 0x01, 0x00, 0x01,
