Function Documentation

int cugl::addMaterial ( GLfloat  params[]  ) 

Add a material to the set of built-in materials. The array of material has a fixed size of 100. An attempt to create more than 100 materials will fail.

params specifies:
  • RGBA values for ambient light
  • RGBA values for diffuse light
  • RGBA values for specular light
  • Value for shininess exponent
the index of the new material.

GLfloat  shine 

Add a material to the set of built-in materials. The array of material has a fixed size of 100. An attempt to create more than 100 materials will fail. The parameters specify:

void cugl::axes ( GLfloat  size = 1  ) 

Draw coordinate axes. This function draws the three principal axes in the current position, using size to determine the length of each axis. The axes are colour-coded: X = red, Y = green, Z = blue.

void cugl::buildPlane ( bool  shadow = false  ) 

Draw an aircraft. The argument determines whether the plane is drawn with a metallic colour (shadow = false, the default) or black, to act as a shadow (shadow = true). The aircraft is built using Bezier surfaces. If you use glScalef to change its size, you must enable GL_NORMALIZE to correct the normals. Otherwise, the lighting will be wrong.

GLuint cugl::makePlaneList ( bool  shadow = false  ) 

Construct a GL call list for the aircraft and return its index.

void cugl::setMaterial ( const int  m,
GLenum  face = GL_FRONT 

Set material values from the enumeration.

m is chosen from the enumeration MATERIAL
face should be one of GL_FRONT (the default), GL_BACK, or GL_FRONT_AND_BACK.
