View Full Version : OpenGL and Motif

10-03-2003, 08:59 PM
Hi, I am looking for a skeleton code in Motif/X that would enclose an OpenGL window( as shown belown). I have seen such skeleton code for the Qt library and OpenGL. However, I only have access to Solaris workstations with Motif and Xlib. I know some basic Motif, so I would prefer any skeleton code that uses Motif rather than Xlib. But if you know a of skeleton that is in Xlib, I would love to see it as well. Thanks ahead of time.

Maybe are you looking for something like the Motif Drawing Area Widget? http://www.sgi.com/software/opengl/glandx/motif/motif.html

Mesa has it but is perhaps using another name?

There is a Motif GL Drawing Area widget. Header files are named along the lines of GLwDraw*.h. I am not sure if this comes with your Motif distribution. You can see what you have in your /usr/X11R6/include/GL directory. There is an example by Mark Kilgaard (somewhere on the web) about how to set it up and use. If you don't find it you can post back and I will try to go through my files and see if I still have it.
