write text


I am trying to write a string using OpenGL glutBitmapCharacter function. I am using Taoframework on VB.Net and everything with the scene is okay (it displays simple geometry as expected) but when I try to write some text nothing appears.

    Public Sub DrawText(ByVal text As String)
        Dim i As Integer
        glRasterPos3f(0, 0, 0)
        glColor4f(1.0#, 1.0#, 1.0#, 1.0#)
        On Error Resume Next
        For i = 1 To Len(text)
            glutBitmapCharacter(GLUT_BITMAP_HELVETICA_12, Asc(Mid(text, i, 1)))
    End Sub

Can you help me? I am a really newbie hereā€¦

Thanks for the help.
