Is it possible to draw to a double-buffered, OpenGL, window without doing ANY clearing whatsoever. I want whatever was on my desktop to serve as the background in the OGL window. Was hoping that if I didn't call glClear I'd get this effect. No luck. The window was still cleared to black. I guess what I really need is for each pixel in the window to be 'cleared' to the color of the pixel BENEATH the OpenGL window. The reason for this is that I want to write an OGL application that I superimpose over another application running underneath it. Been playing around with glClear, unsuccessfully, trying to get this effect. Thanks for your suggestions.
