glutBitmapString — Draw a string of bitmapped characters

Library

OpenGLUT - bitmapfont

Synopsis

#include <openglut.h>

void
glutBitmapString(void *font, const unsigned char *string);

Parameters


font


A bitmapped font identifier.


string


A NUL-terminated ASCII string.

Description

Draw a


string


the current OpenGL raster position using a bitmapped


font.


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

The starting raster position is used as the left margin for multi-line strings. Each newline character repositions the raster position at the beginning of the next line.

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


font


is not a valid OpenGLUT bitmap font


-


string


is an empty string or NULL pointer


- The current OpenGL raster position is invalid
