glutDestroyWindow — Destroy a window and associated subwindows

Library

OpenGLUT - window

Synopsis

#include <openglut.h>

void
glutDestroyWindow(int windowID);

Parameters


windowID


Window identifier

Description

After this function is invoked, the only further event that may be delivered for your window is the one for its destruction. All other events should be discarded.

Once a window has been destroyed, further attempts to use the window named by


windowID


are undefined. OpenGLUT generally tries to be sensible, and should not recycle the dead


windowID,


but you should treat a destroyed window much like a pointer to deallocated memory and try not to use it.
