OpenGL texture not rendering if it's currently active

  • I was using QOpenGLWidget to render textured triangle, the code was looking good but the triangle was always rendering black i had problem with it for two days until i accidentally found out what the title says.

    This is the code, the texture gets loaded to default location of GL_TEXTURE0 and the it will not work unless i call glActiveTexture(GL_TEXTURE1) at the end, GL_TEXTURE1 is just an example it can be any other texture slot except the one where texture actually is. Without the call the object will be black.

    glGenTextures(1, &texture);
    glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, texture);
    glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, GL_RGB, ready.width(), ready.height(), 0, GL_RGBA, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, ready.constBits());

    I've tried some tests, creating multiple textures and displaying them all at once, the last active texture was always black unless i activate some other unoccupied slot.

    I don't know what to make of this, i'm begginer in OpenGL and Qt but this doesn't sound right.
