glutBitmapCharacter — Draw a bitmapped character

Library

OpenGLUT - bitmapfont

Synopsis

#include <openglut.h>

void
glutBitmapCharacter(void *font, int character);

Parameters


font


A bitmapped font identifier.


character


A character code.

Description

Draw a


character


at the current OpenGL raster position using a bitmapped


font.


The raster position is advanced by the width of the character.

Nothing is drawn, and the raster position is unaffected when either:
-


character


is out of range


-


font


is not a valid OpenGLUT bitmap font


- The current OpenGL raster position is invalid

Caveats

glutBitmapString() is generally more efficient for strings of characters.
