I am producing a Hello Triangle using the code below. SharpGL seems to always plot a vertex at the origin (0,0). This is obvious when the PolygonMode is changed to GL_POINT. When using DrawElements the primitive element shape gets distorted, as it includes the origin vertex. This does not happen with DrawArray, but the origin vertex still appears. Need to get rid of it.

OpenGL gl = openGLControl.OpenGL;

gl.PolygonMode(OpenGL.GL_FRONT_AND_BACK, OpenGL.GL_LINE);

gl.Color(0f, 1.0f, 0.0f);

float[] VertexData =  {
                          0.5f, 0.5f, 0.0f,
                          0.5f, -0.5f, 0.0f,
                          -0.5f, -0.5f, 0.0f
uint[] ElementData = {
                        0, 1, 2

uint[] VertexBuffer = new uint[1];
gl.GenBuffers(1, VertexBuffer);
gl.BindBuffer(OpenGL.GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, VertexBuffer[0]);
IntPtr ptr1 = GCHandle.Alloc(VertexData, GCHandleType.Pinned).AddrOfPinnedObject();
gl.BufferData(OpenGL.GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, VertexData.Length * sizeof(float), ptr1, OpenGL.GL_STATIC_DRAW);

uint[] ElementBuffer = new uint[1];
gl.GenBuffers(1, ElementBuffer);
gl.BindBuffer(OpenGL.GL_ELEMENT_ARRAY_BUFFER, ElementBuffer[0]);
IntPtr ptr2 = GCHandle.Alloc(ElementData, GCHandleType.Pinned).AddrOfPinnedObject();
gl.BufferData(OpenGL.GL_ELEMENT_ARRAY_BUFFER, ElementData.Length * sizeof(int), ptr2, OpenGL.GL_STATIC_DRAW);

uint[] VertexArrayID = new uint[1];
gl.GenVertexArrays(1, VertexArrayID);

gl.VertexAttribPointer(0, 3, OpenGL.GL_FLOAT, true, 0, IntPtr.Zero);

gl.DrawElements(OpenGL.GL_TRIANGLES, VertexData.Length, ElementData);


What I have tried:

Confirmed that the VertexData array is compiled correctly.

Solved. Seems that VertexData.Length should be divided by 3 (as per the number of coords).
