View Full Version : changing window name in glut game mode

10-16-2003, 04:04 PM
I've been using glut with Visual C++ 6.0, and I notice in game mode the title in the taskbar for my compiled program is "GLUT". I'd like to change this, but glutSetWindowTitle("whatever") didn't seem to have any effect. How can this be done?

use glutCreateWindow("Whatever you want in here"); when you create the window, and that should do the trick.

That creates a normal window, I want game mode (fullscreen). Gave it a shot, anyway, though; tried creating a normal window with the title I want first, then switching to game mode, and reregistering all my callbacks, but that just ended up creating 2 windows, neither of which would animate my simple rotating triangle, and the fullscreen window was still called "GLUT". Suffice to say, it didn't work.

BTW, what is this forum's view on "bumping" topics? *cough*
