I think there is no function in VB (and in QT for that matter), which can do excatly what glutIdleFunc does.

The work around is to use a timer with 0 timeout, It will be processed only if there is no other event to be processed.

Two things to note:

1)I had asked the same question few weeks back, so u could have got the answer by searching OpenGL Advanced message board.

2)Ppl here HATE words like Urgent, Plase Help, etc.
