I didn't know where to post this, but I am going to use dual monitors, and I want to know if I can use OpenGL on ONE monitor... I've seen quite a few posts on extending gl... I have never used dual monitors, and I have not messed with drivers or any other wierd settings for initializing. I have a specific purpose in mind, so please don't tell me it's not worth it. If I sound like a retard, then it's probably because I am one. Thanks http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/confused.gif

I'm gonna assume that you are using Windows.

In which case you can use OpenGL in just one of the windows, and the other one as normal - it's good for debugging!

Look up the commands EnumDisplayDevices and EnumDisplaySettings
