GLORTHO(3G) OpenGL Manual GLORTHO(3G)
glOrtho - multiply the current matrix with an orthographic matrix
void glOrtho(GLdouble left, GLdouble right, GLdouble bottom, GLdouble top,
GLdouble nearVal, GLdouble farVal);
Specify the coordinates for the left and right vertical clipping planes.
Specify the coordinates for the bottom and top horizontal clipping planes.
Specify the distances to the nearer and farther depth clipping planes. These values
are negative if the plane is to be behind the viewer.
glOrtho describes a transformation that produces a parallel projection. The current matrix
(see glMatrixMode()) is multiplied by this matrix and the result replaces the current
matrix, as if glMultMatrix() were called with the following matrix as its argument:
2 right - left 0 0 t x 0 2 top - bottom 0 t y 0 0 -2 farVal - nearVal t z 0 0 0 1
where t x = - right + left right - leftt y = - top + bottom top - bottomt z = - farVal +
nearVal farVal - nearVal
Typically, the matrix mode is GL_PROJECTION, and left bottom - nearVal and right top -
nearVal specify the points on the near clipping plane that are mapped to the lower left
and upper right corners of the window, respectively, assuming that the eye is located at
(0, 0, 0). - farVal specifies the location of the far clipping plane. Both nearVal and
farVal can be either positive or negative.
Use glPushMatrix() and glPopMatrix() to save and restore the current matrix stack.
GL_INVALID_VALUE is generated if left = right, or bottom = top, or near = far.
GL_INVALID_OPERATION is generated if glOrtho is executed between the execution of
glBegin() and the corresponding execution of glEnd().
