Hey everyone, well, I'm trying to use openil and apparently something is wrong with my code... It compiles, links, ect with no problems... the problem is though (of course) the image doesn't display... I draw the quad, and the texture *should* be mapped onto it, but it isnt... here is my code(all of it since its a small app), knowing me it will be something so stupid I'll want to slap myself... thanks

note: it was already commented, because my brother wants to learn opengl after I get decent at it, so i was saving myself from commenting later on...

#include <gl/glut.h>
#include <il/ilut.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

int texture[1];

bool loadTexture()

ILuint ImgId; // The image name

ilGenImages(1, &amp;ImgId); // Generate an image name
ilBindImage(ImgId); // Bind image as the current one
if (!ilLoadImage("test.bmp")) // Load the image and check for errors
ilDeleteImages(1, &amp;ImgId); // If it couldn't load, delete it all
return false; // return false to show that loading was uncessful

texture[0] = ilutGLBindTexImage(); // Send the image to opengl
ilDeleteImages(1, &amp;ImgId); // Delete the image name, since its also been stored int texture[0]

return true; // Return successful load

// Called when the prog starts to setup basic stuff
void init()
glClearColor(0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0); // Sets it so it clears to black whenever the sceen is cleared
glColor3f(1.0, 1.0, 1.0); // Sets the drawing color to white
exit(1); // Exit prog if the texture couldnt be loaded

// Called each time to redraw the scene
void display()
glClear(GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT); // Clear The Screen
glLoadIdentity(); // Reset The View

glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, texture[0]);
glBegin(GL_QUADS); // Lets Make a quad
glTexCoord2f(0.0f, 0.0f); glVertex3f(-1.0f, -1.0f, 0.0f);
glTexCoord2f(1.0f, 0.0f); glVertex3f( 1.0f, -1.0f, 0.0f);
glTexCoord2f(1.0f, 1.0f); glVertex3f( 1.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f);
glTexCoord2f(0.0f, 1.0f); glVertex3f(-1.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f);


int main(int argc, char** argv)
glutInit(&amp;argc, argv); // Passes the stuff from main to do some init suff.
glutInitDisplayMode(GLUT_RGBA | GLUT_DOUBLE); // Sets the drawing pixel method, and enables double buffers
glutInitWindowPosition(50, 50); // puts the window 50 pixels down and 50 pixels right from top left of screen
glutInitWindowSize(256, 256); // Makes the window 500x500 pixels
glutCreateWindow("Some title here"); // Creates a window with this title
glutDisplayFunc(display); // Calls display whenever the window needs to be reshown
glutIdleFunc(display); // Calls display whenever there is freetime, we dont want freetime, we want drawing
init(); // does init stuff that I dont want called each time
glutMainLoop(); // Whoohoo, lets run the prog
return 0;

ARGH, ARGH... stupid, stupid me...(like i said, it'd probably be stupid, I just didnt look)
never enabled the texturing...
problem solved..
