Hi all, I'm having a problem again with a sample program from OpenGL super bible book. After converted the program to C#, I got this output

And this is the original output from the sample in C++

I used FLAT shading in my C# program so it is showing those little black triangles. Could any one please tell me how get rid of those black triangles?

I think that there is "1 line to 1 line" of code link between my C# function to draw the torus and the C++ function. But how my func got wrong ? or somewhere else my code got wrong ? :(

This is my func in C#:

public static void DrawTorus(float majorRadius, float minorRadius, int numMajor, int numMinor)

{

Vector3D3f vNormal = new Vector3D3f();

double majorStep = 2.0f * Math.PI / numMajor;

double minorStep = 2.0f * Math.PI / numMinor;

int i, j;

for (i = 0; i < numMajor; i++)

{

double a0 = i * majorStep;

double a1 = a0 + majorStep;

float x0 = (float)Math.Cos(a0);

float y0 = (float)Math.Sin(a0);

float x1 = (float)Math.Cos(a1);

float y1 = (float)Math.Sin(a1);

GL.Begin(GL.TRIANGLE_STRIP);

for (j = 0; j <= numMinor; j++)

{

double b = j * minorStep;

float c = (float)Math.Cos(b);

float r = minorRadius * c + majorRadius;

float z = minorRadius * (float)Math.Sin(b);

//First point

GL.TexCoord2f((float)i / (float)(numMajor), (float)(j) / (float)(numMinor));

vNormal[0] = x0 * c;

vNormal[1] = y0 * c;

vNormal[2] = z / minorRadius;

Math3D.NormalizeVector(vNormal);

GL.Normal3f(vNormal.X, vNormal.Y, vNormal.Z);

GL.Vertex3f(x0 * r, y0 * r, z);

GL.TexCoord2f((float)(i + 1) / (float)(numMajor), (float)(j) / (float)(numMinor));

vNormal[0] = x1 * c;

vNormal[1] = y1 * c;

vNormal[2] = z / minorRadius;

Math3D.NormalizeVector(vNormal);

GL.Normal3f(vNormal.Z, vNormal.Y, vNormal.Z);

GL.Vertex3f(x1 * r, y1 * r, z);

}

GL.End();

}

}
