SYNOPSIS

In openglut.h Ft void Fn glutInitDisplayString const char *displayMode  

PARAMETERS

Bf Em
 displayMode Ef
    Requested display mode string.  

DESCRIPTION

glutInitDisplayString() permits you to define a display mode for subsequent windows that you open. In most regards, control is at least as fine as with glutInitDisplaymode().

The Bf Sy
 displayMode Ef
 parameter is case-sensitive, and tokens are separated by ASCII TABs (\t) and SPACEs.

CAVEATS

Conflicting modes, such as Bf Sy
 single Ef
 and  Bf Sy
 double Ef
 have the same interaction as for glutInitDisplayMode().

 

TODO

Bf Sy
 GLUT_BORDERLESS Ef
 and  Bf Sy
 GLUT_OFFSCREEN Ef
 are not represented.

Not all features appear to be implemented. In particular, numeric parameters and comparator specifications are lacking. See GLUT 3.7 sources for example.
