I’m using some code I got from Nehe tutorials

I’m compiling in Xcode 2.4

I get 2 warning and both say “MyOpenGLView may not respond to loadBitmap- intoIndex” so the Bitmap I put in never gets to the drawing and I get nothing but white on my shape. Any suggestions?

So…. have you got a loadBitmap method in your object?

Yeah, sorry about that. Heres the code.

This is the method after loadGLtextures. I tried putting the loadbitmap before the loadGLtextures, I got no more warnings but the white shape still remained. Any suggestions?

The reason for the warning is that the compiler can’t see the prototype at the time it is compiling the callsite. You could add the prototype to the interface (in the header) or create a category in the implementation file (usually better for private method visibility). Changing the order of the methods removes the warning since the callsite is now after the definition.

What does the actual rendering code look like? Does it correctly bind the texture and then make the glTexCoord2f calls preceding each vertex?


If you’re not sure whether it’s the texture not getting loaded or the stuff not rendering properly, have a look at OpenGL Profiler. It can show you all of the textures loaded in your application, so you can directly see whether the texture has been loaded without your potentially buggy rendering code getting in the way. Beware, though, of textures that are white-on-transparent, they often look like they’re not loaded and then you spend an hour running around in circles chasing the wrong thing! (Can you tell this happened to me?)

I am using glTexCoords after every vertice, I added the prototype to the header and got the texture to load fine. Oh by the way alot of this code was stolen from NeHe tutorials (the one on texture mapping). I appreciate the help thanks.

There are lots of NeHe examples that build and work with Cocoa unmodified. What is different between what you wrote and the NeHe tutorial ? Here are several common mbeginner mistakes:

[As the original poster of a giant blob of code, I have deleted the code. I realized that I effectively spammed the page because the discussion is/was much too specific to a particular NeHe introductory example for my big (overly) general solution to benefit anybody. If you want the code, you can find it in the page history.]

Before I answer that question, I have one more problem, I am trying to modify some code I got from NeHe thats loads a 256 by 256 image to load a 600 by 800 image. I really would like some help as to how to change the vertices. This bit of code is in drawRect:(NSRect)rect.

glPopMatrix(); glDisable( GL_TEXTURE_GEN_S ); // Disable texture coord generation glDisable( GL_TEXTURE_GEN_T ); // Disable texture coord generation

// This will select the BG texture glBindTexture( GL_TEXTURE_2D, texture[ filter * 2 ] );

glPushMatrix(); glTranslatef( 0.0f, 0.0f, -24.0f ); glBegin( GL_QUADS ); glNormal3f( 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f ); glTexCoord2f( 0.0f, 0.0f ); glVertex3f( -13.3f, -10.0f, 10.0f ); glTexCoord2f( 1.0f, 0.0f ); glVertex3f( 13.3f, -10.0f, 10.0f ); glTexCoord2f( 1.0f, 1.0f ); glVertex3f( 13.3f, 10.0f, 10.0f ); glTexCoord2f( 0.0f, 1.0f ); glVertex3f( -13.3f, 10.0f, 10.0f ); glEnd();


Adjust the glVertex3f xy coords so that they have a 4:3 aspect ratio. Meanwhile, check that non-power-of-two size textures works…

I tried changing the vertices and with no luck, I tried loading an image that was not a perfect square and with no luck either. I may have changed the vertices incorrectly, I’m going to sound like an idiot, but can you give me some numbers for the x and y numerals and should I have changed the z at all? I’m sorry I’m only a thirteen year old, and a beginner at OpenGL. Also what do I do to change it so non-perfect-squares load? I appreciate all the help.

Do you have a glEnable(GL_TEXTURE_2D) somewhere early in the execution? If you are having trouble getting started, you could try just hacking around within the tutorial to see what effect the changes that you make have on the OpenGL state.
