@vejmarie, do you want to take this one while you are messing around with OpenGL? It looks really straight-forward if you read the stackoverview link included in the description.

Assigned to @vejmarie per his Gitter post to take a look.

I just checked, and this stuff is located into dead code (aka it is never called anywhere in FreeCAD and we can even comment the function). I think we shall just comment it for the moment, and remove it in a couple of months if nobody wants to re-activate it. What do you think ?

Thanks @vejmarie, your plan sounds fine by me but perhaps we can just remove the legacy code and re-add if necessary.

Adding @wmayer so he can weigh in.

+1 for just deleting unnecessary code - it's less work and just as safe.

GLImageBox.cpp is part of the Image module and maybe rarely used but it's definitely not dead code.

Hi wmayer,
The call is there

void GLImageBox::resizeGL( int w, int h )
    glViewport( 0, 0, (GLint)w, (GLint)h );
    glMatrixMode( GL_PROJECTION );
    gluOrtho2D(0, width() - 1, height() - 1, 0);
and the ResizeGL function is never called in FreeCAD, that is why I proposed to remove it from the file by commenting it. GLImageBox.cpp is a old stuff. I can migrate it to a newer GL code, but the issue I faced was how to test it, as it is not called into FreeCAD ;). Ok I can call it and see if it work, but I even have some doubt on that because it will requires to change the viewprovider call to call the resize at the right time. "lot" of work for something currently unused ;).

Ok, I found a way to test the stuff. I will push for a PR within the next couple of minutes to close that issus

This has been fixed in PR 0000584 I think we can close the issue
