Is there someplace on the web where i can get a list of ALL the ARB commands and constants. For the commands I need the variables that go with them, and the values for the constants.

This goes with my VB question which nobody is replying to http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/frown.gif
If i could get all the commands i could make a library for visual basic so i could use the commands.

Thanks for any replies (and i do know a little C++ so if there is a file i could find it in that would be useful too)

Thanks

You find all constants and functioncalls in the extension registry

I dont know how you make a function in a dll without knowing the entrypoint at compiletime.. you get all extensions ( and code functions above 1.1) via the wglGetProcAdress function, and you cannot know them at compiletime, so that could be a problem. If its possible to dynamically load functionpointers on the other hand, it shouldnt be any problem at all in VB.

Thanks, this will help a lot. I'll read through the page, it looks like there is a different way of extension loading then i thought. If this doesn't work, then i'll start looking for other things, but Thank You http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/smile.gif http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/smile.gif

No one, but its the only language i know well enough to do all this. I am trying to learn C++.
