I have to use OpenGL to create a display that contains text only knowing that OpenGL is not specialized for text rendering. I need to create a display that contains static text and dynamically updated text as follows (just an example):
static field dynamic field Student Name: xxxxxx Student ID: xxxxxx Student Age: xxxxxx Sex xxxxxx Year at school: xxxxxx
To optimize the performance, I used display list and glCallLists to display the static field. The performance improved about 10% (CPU).
Any suggestions to improve the performance for displaying the dynamic text data that I periodically received from another processor?
Thanks a lot for your help in advance !!!
