Wireframe and Solid mode

Hi Guys

OK in my Opengl app i want to be able to view both wireframe and solid mode at the same time ...how do i do this? ....i know how to view each individually for eg glPolygonMode(GL_FRONT_AND_BACK, GL_LINE) but i want to view both modes at the same times.

Cheers

If you want to render wireframe on top of solid, then you'll just have to render it twice.

Ok this is pretty simple, when your render the scene first render it in solid mode

with glPolygonMode(GL_FRONT_AND_BACK, GL_FILL)
//render code

then render the same again but then in GL_LINE

glPolygonMode(GL_FRONT_AND_BACK, GL_LINE)
//render code

by the way I don't know what kind of buffers you use so it can be when you use GL_FRONT with both it could work
