View Full Version : Using OpenGL in Delphi

Hello!

I'm pretty much a newb with Delphi 7, but guess what? That's what I have! Could someone please tell me how to get Delphi to use OpenGL commands? Thanks!

Hi,
There's tons of stuff around on getting started with Delphi/OpenGL ... I'd suggest that you start with this site ...
www.sulaco.co.za (http://www.sulaco.co.za)

And here's a few others ...
www.delphi3d.net (http://www.delphi3d.net)
glscene.cjb.net
delphigl.cfxweb.net www.exsanity.freeola.com (http://www.exsanity.freeola.com)
nehe.gamedev.net

There's a good beginners book by Jon Jacobs that introduces OpenGL in a Delphi environment ... basic but solid !

I'd recommend avoiding component suites, it's essential that you understand the foundations before exploring stuff like GLScene ... excellently written, supported and powerful ... but not yet.

I'd also suggest that you consider what and where help/information will be available ... there's tons of links on Google, so use the net search tools and posting such a question into this newsgroup is offtopic and unlikely to produce many results ... I seldom pass through this newsgroup !

Best of luck ...
