Hi everyone! My first post to this forum, and I am really looking forward to start learning openGL.

First of all I would like to create a very simple application written in c++. I would like to create an app where I can draw some lines, polygons and squares.

Can anyone help me out how to start this project?


Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Definitely take a look at NeHe.

If you're using VS 2005, I assume you'll eventually want to learn how to use OpenGL with .NET forms and all that fun stuff.

If you'd like, you can check out the project I posted on this (http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/ultimatebb.php?ubb=get_topic;f=2;t=020690;p=1#0000 04) thread.
