These represent points on the x, y, and z axes. Now let’s set up the onDraw() method.

However, it will also contain a call to the draw() method of the SBGSplash class. See Listing 2-22. Listing 2-22. multiplyMM(mMVPMatrix, 0, mProjMatrix, 0, mVMatrix, 0); } The final step in this solution is to set up the GLSurfaceView and call it from the main activity.

Because your array is 0-based, the offset is 0. The second line binds the texture into OpenGL ES. GL_TEXTURE_2D, textures[0]); ... GL_TEXTURE_2D, textures[0]); If you were to have two textures that you were loading together, you would have two each of these first two lines—one to load the first image and one to load the second. The next two lines deal with how OpenGL is to map the texture onto the vertices. You want the mapping to take place quickly, but produce sharpened pixels. GL_LINEAR); ...

Now, let’s move on to the onSurfaceChanged() method. 33 34 CHAPTER 2: Loading an Image The onSurfacedChanged() Method The onSurfacedChanged() method is going to handle all of the setup that is needed to display your images.
