Hi, can someone give me a simple example of a 2D quad strip.

im using

glBegin(GL_QUAD_STRIP);

glVertex2i(1, 1);

glVertex2i(1,-1);

glVertex2i(1, 1);

glVertex2i(1, -1);

glEnd();

But nothing...

But nothing...That's probably because you don't have any polygons(well, quadrilaterals). I drew it out and it made a line shape. try something like:

(1,1)(1,-1)(2,-1)(2,1)(3,1)(3,-1)(4,-1)(4,1)

Think castle tower wall.

"GL_QUAD_STRIP

Draws a connected group of quadrilaterals. One quadrilateral is defined for each pair of vertices presented after the first pair. Vertices 2n−1, 2n, 2n+2, and 2n+1 define quadrilateral n. N/2−1 quadrilaterals are drawn. Note that the order in which vertices are used to construct a quadrilateral from strip data is different from that used with independent data.

Which, unfourtunately, is exactly the wrong vertex order, as the quoted part of the manual page explains. The correct order would be:

"GL_QUAD_STRIP

Draws a connected group of quadrilaterals. One quadrilateral is defined for each pair of vertices presented after the first pair. Vertices 2n−1, 2n, 2n+2, and 2n+1 define quadrilateral n. N/2−1 quadrilaterals are drawn. Note that the order in which vertices are used to construct a quadrilateral from strip data is different from that used with independent data.

"--http://pyopengl.sourceforge.net/documentation/manual/glBegin.3G.htmlFor n=1 for example, this will select the vertices with indices 1, 2, 4, 3. Which gives the properly CCW wound quad (1,1) (1,-1) (2,-1) (2,1). This is the same vertex order as for triangle strips.
