displaying the texture on an object

Oct 7, 2011 at 11:58 AM

call me nieve but i cant get the textuer to display on any object files what am i missing?

// Create a Persistence Engine.

SharpGL.Persistence.PersistenceEngine engine = new


// Destroy the existing texture.


// Create a a set of polygons.

List loaded = (List)engine.Load("Woman.cob");

// If we successfully loaded, set the collection.

if (loaded != null)


polygons = loaded;

foreach(Polygon polygon in loaded)

polygon.Attributes.PolygonDrawMode =


// Create a new texture.

texture.Create(openGLControl1.OpenGL, "Afemale copy.BMP");

// Redraw.



any help would be great im extramly new to GL

It may be that the texturing coordinates are not being loaded correctly - can you send over the project and I'll take a look?

ok so after making some changes and applying the proper settings to the control i have the ability to load the mesh but its still not reading texture,


i know you are currently working on a loading OBJ file types with MAT if i can help in any way let me know but i cant figure out how to get the texture to load

if anyone else can help me out it would be great


thanks in advance

Hi cky as an update to this I now have OBJ files loading the latest cut of the code (version 7099), Example 4 from the WinForms folder can load an OBJ file - I need to get materials working with it though. Anyway, the code is there if you want an early peek at it :)

dude you are awsome  ill look at it over the next few days

Cool, I'm going to change the Example 4 application into a proper object loading application, allowing you to preview what you're loading. This should be a useful tool for analysing object data. Once this is done I think I'll then formally release SharpGL 2.0 (as its only in beta at the mo) I think this tool will be v useful

i do too  my use for it will be displaying chactor static meshes on a project that im working on the only thing that is goign to be hard to do is overlaying meshes but ill have to work that out once i get the mesh and the materials to load then i have do a color overlay posably based on  object sections and if not then it will still just be cool to have the 3d char spinning

I am having trouble figuring out how to load textures along with the polygons from a .OBJ file. Currently I am simply loading polygons but they are displayed as white.

Any thoughts?
