[Up] Parameters

x1, y1
Specify one vertex of a rectangle.
x2, y2
Specify the opposite vertex of the rectangle.
Specifies a pointer to one vertex of a rectangle.
Specifies a pointer to the opposite vertex of the rectangle.

[Up] Description

glRect supports efficient specification of rectangles as two corner points. Each rectangle command takes four arguments, organized either as two consecutive pairs of (x,y) coordinates, or as two pointers to arrays, each containing an (x, y) pair. The resulting rectangle is defined in the z = 0 plane.

glRect(x1, y1, x2, y2) is exactly equivalent to the following sequence:

    glVertex2(x1, y1);
    glVertex2(x2, y1);
    glVertex2(x2, y2);
    glVertex2(x1, y2);
Note that if the second vertex is above and to the right of the first vertex, the rectangle is constructed with a counterclockwise winding.
