I am learning opengl and now have code to make a new window. I would like to move onto adding triangles/quads; I just dont know where to add the code for a triangle/quad. I will paste the code into this thread; if you know could you just add <--- Code for triangle/quad goes here downwards or something similar to that, so i know where to add the code into.

#include <windows.h>
LRESULT CALLBACK WndProc(HWND hwnd, UINT msg, WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam)
{
    switch(msg)
    {
        case WM_CLOSE:
            DestroyWindow(hwnd);
        break;
        case WM_DESTROY:
            PostQuitMessage(0);
        break;
        default:
            return DefWindowProc(hwnd, msg, wParam, lParam);
    }
    return 0;
}
int WINAPI WinMain(HINSTANCE hInstance, HINSTANCE hPrevInstance, LPSTR lpCmdLine, int nCmdShow)
{
    WNDCLASSEX wc;
    HWND hwnd;
    MSG msg;


    wc.cbSize        = sizeof(WNDCLASSEX);
    wc.style         = 0;
    wc.lpfnWndProc   = WndProc;
    wc.cbClsExtra    = 0;
    wc.cbWndExtra    = 0;
    wc.hInstance     = hInstance;
    wc.hIcon         = LoadIcon(NULL, IDI_APPLICATION);
    wc.hCursor       = LoadCursor(NULL, IDC_ARROW);
    wc.hbrBackground = (HBRUSH)(COLOR_WINDOW+1);
    wc.lpszMenuName  = NULL;
    wc.lpszClassName = "classname";
    wc.hIconSm       = LoadIcon(NULL, IDI_APPLICATION);

    if(!RegisterClassEx(&wc))
    {
        MessageBox(NULL, "FAILED!!!!", "ERROR", MB_OK | MB_ICONEXCLAMATION);
    }

    hwnd = CreateWindowEx(WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE, "classname", "Title Here", WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW, CW_USEDEFAULT, CW_USEDEFAULT, 640, 480, NULL, NULL, hInstance, NULL);

    if(hwnd == NULL)
    {
        MessageBox(NULL, "FAILED!!!", "ERROR", MB_OK | MB_ICONEXCLAMATION);
    }

    ShowWindow(hwnd, SW_SHOW);
    UpdateWindow(hwnd);


    while(GetMessage(&msg, NULL, 0, 0) > 0)
    {
        TranslateMessage(&msg);
        DispatchMessage(&msg);
    }
    return msg.wParam;
}

sorry skipped ahead a lot. Please ignore this. I will pheraps re post this in a year or so. I dont want to learn it yet as 1/2 months in.
