View Full Version : C++ and OpenGL
Does every member variable and function need to static ? If so am I right in thinking you can only call other static members ? Does anyone know where there are some examples of using C++ with openGL, especially when giving OpenGL C++ static class member callbacks
especially when giving OpenGL C++ static class member callbacksare you talking about GLUT here? Of course the methods you give glut should be static, since GLUT would need an instance of your class to call a nonstatic method (needs "this")...
This is basic programming stuff. You should be comfortable with your language before you tackle opengl... There are countless tutorials on the web. Try google.

If you are starting to learn how to program using glut you can check out http://programminghq.tk/
I think the only way around this is to write a non-member function (static/global) that calls the member function in the class and pass that function to glutDisplayFunc.
