Hi All,

I want to draw text in my win32 app using opengl without glut. I tried with free type 2 library but i fail to load font file for it.

Please help me to fix this issue.

Thanks.

Do you get an error code when the load font routine fails?

Solution 2

you can create texture map containing all font characters.. then draw the font by proper texture mapping..
If you don't want fixed font , you can also create a 3d file (like obj or 3ds) containing meshes of characters. then load it and render it..

Solution 1

We can use wglUseFontBitmaps function to draw text in OpenGL.
