VBO's and outline fonts

I’m making a simple aplication and I want to use both VBO’s and outline fonts.Problem is that they don’t like each other :slight_smile: I can use VBO’s or font but using both crashes program on calling certain display list.(I don’t know if this problem has been discussed yet 'cause seach on this forum doesn’t work)

What do you mean use fonts?

Using some functions slightly modified taken from Nehes lesson14.

BOOL BuildFont(const char * fontname)					
	BOOL sucess=FALSE;
	HFONT	font;									// Windows Font ID
	base = glGenLists(256);							// Storage For 256 Characters
	font = CreateFont(-12,							// Height Of Font
						0,							// Width Of Font
						0,							// Angle Of Escapement
						0,							// Orientation Angle
			 			FW_BOLD,					// Font Weight(0-1000)
						FALSE,						// Italic
						FALSE,						// Underline
						FALSE,						// Strikeout
						ANSI_CHARSET,				// Character Set Identifier
						OUT_TT_PRECIS,				// Output Precision
						CLIP_DEFAULT_PRECIS,		// Clipping Precision
						ANTIALIASED_QUALITY,		// Output Quality
						FF_DONTCARE|DEFAULT_PITCH,	// Family And Pitch
						fontname);					// Font Name
		return sucess;
	SelectObject(hDC, font);						// Selects The Font We Created
	sucess=wglUseFontOutlines( hDC,						// Select The Current DC
					    0,							// Starting Character
					    255,						// Number Of Display Lists To Build
					    base,						// Starting Display Lists
						0.0f,						// Deviation From The True Outlines
						0.05f,						// Font Thickness In The Z Direction
						WGL_FONT_POLYGONS,			// Use Polygons, Not Lines
						gmf);						// Address Of Buffer To Recieve Data
	return sucess;

void KillFont()
	glDeleteLists(base, 256);						// Delete All 256 Characters

void glPrint(double xrot,double yrot,double zrot,const char *fmt, ...)
	float charlength=0;								// Used To Find The Length Of The Text
	unsigned char count=0;
	char text[256];									// Holds Our String
	va_list ap;										// Pointer To List Of Arguments
	if (fmt == NULL)								// If There's No Text
		return;										// Do Nothing
	va_start(ap, fmt);								// Parses The String For Variables
		count=vsprintf(text, fmt, ap);				// And Converts Symbols To Actual Numbers
	va_end(ap);										// Results Are Stored In Text
	for (unsigned int i=0;i<count;i++)		// Loop To Find Text Length
		charlength+=gmf[text[i]].gmfCellIncX;			// Increase Length By Each Characters Width
	glRotated(xrot,1,0,0);							// Rotate Text
	glTranslatef(-1.0f*charlength/2,0.0f,0.0f);		// Center Our Text On The Screen
	glPushAttrib(GL_LIST_BIT);						// Pushes The Display List Bits
	glListBase(base);								// Sets The Base Character to 0
	glPopAttrib();									// Pops The Display List Bits

in glprint I’ve changed glCallLists to loop with glCallList so I found problematical display lists
