Problem with display lists


I want to get a free Display list index. But everytime I call the glGenLists function (e.g. index=glGenLists(1); )it returns 0.
Is there anything I have to activate before I can use this function ???

Thanks for your help !!!


Hi !

No there is nothing to activate it should work straight out of the box, what you might be doing is to call glGenLists() between glBegin() and glEnd(), you cannot do that.


And you must create a valid rendering context by using wglCreateContext before all other OpenGL commands.
