I am learning OpenGL by glfw3 lib and I am using imgui to make a interesting application.
However, I can not render what I want in a imgui window.

I searched google and get below link:

  1. Render in a imGui Window
  2. How can I render an OpenGL scene into an ImGui window?

I tried about two days and I have rendered a triangle in a imgui window.
However, when I try to render content as this link(Tutorial and Code) shows me.
The box in my imgui window will not spin! It is a stationary photo.
What's wrong with my code?

#define __abc__is a value to test.
Xhader.h just is the header file in the tutorial, also .vs and .fs files.
The only difference is the tutorial uses glad.h and I use glew.h.

#define __abc__
#define STB_IMAGE_IMPLEMENTATION
#include <iostream>
#include <GL/glew.h>
#include <GLFW/glfw3.h>
#include <stb_image.h>

#include <glm/glm.hpp>
#include <glm/gtc/matrix_transform.hpp>
#include <glm/gtc/type_ptr.hpp>

#include "imgui_impl_glfw.h"

Move these lines inside the while loop.

unsigned int fbo;
glGenFramebuffers(1, &fbo);
glBindFramebuffer(GL_FRAMEBUFFER, fbo);

GLuint TOF;
glGenTextures(1, &TOF);
glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, TOF);
glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, GL_RGB, 400, 300, 0, GL_RGB, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, NULL);
glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, GL_LINEAR);
glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER, GL_LINEAR);

Then once all your rendering is done you have to delete the frame buffer and texture object every time inside the loop.

glDeleteFramebuffers(1, &fbo);
glDeleteTextures(1, &TOF);

The idea is for each and every time inside the loop, the frame buffer needs to be created, utilized and the deleted. Other wise the buffer will not refresh.
