glutInitDisplayString ā€” Set the window creation display mode.

Library

OpenGLUT - window

Synopsis

#include <openglut.h>

void
glutInitDisplayString(const char *displayMode);

Parameters

displayMode

Requested display mode string.

Description

glutInitDisplayString() permits you to define a display mode for subsequent windows that you open. In most regards, control is at least as fine as with glutInitDisplaymode().

The

displayMode

parameter is case-sensitive, and tokens are separated by ASCII TABs (\t) and SPACEs.

Caveats

Conflicting modes, such as

single

and

double

have the same interaction as for glutInitDisplayMode().

Todo

GLUT_BORDERLESS

and

GLUT_OFFSCREEN

are not represented.

Not all features appear to be implemented. In particular, numeric parameters and comparator specifications are lacking. See GLUT 3.7 sources for example.
