# Opengl drawing a section of a texture stretched over a quad

Current Situation

I have a spritesheet loaded in for a texture when drawing the specific portions of the sheet that I'd like to have on my quads I do some simple math to get their location on the sheet and normalize it.

My texture is setup like this:

glTexParameterf(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, GL_LINEAR);
glTexParameterf(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER, GL_LINEAR);
glTexParameterf(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_S, GL_REPEAT);
glTexParameterf(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_T, GL_REPEAT);

The Problem

Where I'm facing the problem is that because I'm using a "chunk" of the total texture I can't take advantage of using 1.0 for the mapping of values to glTexCoordPointer to cause the texture to stretch over the entire face.

Looked Into

I've looked for a glTexParameterf option for scaling options but I failed to find anything.

Question

Is it possible with my current methods to stretch the texture over the face of the quad without having to load a separate image for every "sprite" of the texture? Or am I just doing everything completely wrong?

Picture that hopefully sort of clarifies:

Thanks for any help.

edit The problem was another issue all together: Turns out it was another issue all together, I thought this didn't make sense cause it was mapping it to the vertices so it should stretch regardless and infact it does work right I was assigning the wrong the width and height values to the drawing routines calculations. And now I feel really stupid, thanks for the help Byte56. Sorry for taking up your time. The GL_CLAMP solution would be the correct answer if I hadn't made a huge fail.

• How are you assigning the texture coordinates to the quad? Commented Apr 24, 2012 at 23:42
• (x, y) of position in texture divided accordingly (x/width) (y/height) become x0 and y0. Then the same for with the width and height of that chunk added on become x1 and y1. Then GLfloat texture_coords[] = {x0, y0, x1, y0, x1, y1, x0, y1}; using glTexCoordPointer obviously. Commented Apr 24, 2012 at 23:49
• Try: glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_S, GL_CLAMP); glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_T, GL_CLAMP); Commented Apr 24, 2012 at 23:55

• Ah, well I was just making my comment into an answer. I guess it's moot then. Glad you solved it! Commented Apr 25, 2012 at 0:01
