The eglInitialize function does not automatically set up control environment (CCoeEnv) on devices that support hardware-accelerated 3D graphics. This only affects applications that use OpenGL ES outside the application framework, for example Open C applications that do not implement a standard S60 UI.

How to reproduce

When trying to run the opencopenglex example on the above devices, the application fails with -6006 error.
The example is included in the Open C SDK Plug-In.


Construct (and destroy) the control environment manually if needed.

CCoeEnv* coeEnv = CCoeEnv::Static();
if( !coeEnv )
coeEnv = new ( ELeave ) CCoeEnv();
coeEnv->ConstructL( ETrue, 0 );
