Hi, is there an easy and fast way to get the x and y position from the opengl transform?
for example,
 1  2  3  4  5 `GL11.glLoadIdentity();GL11.glRotatef(45,0,0,1);GL11.glTranslatef(0,10,0);//-> then somehow get x and y position of current transform`

Thanks

 1 `glGetFloatv(GL_MODELVIEW_MATRIX, buffer)`

after that, load the 16 values into a matrix class (use the LWJGL one, or google one) and transform your vertex with it.

Thanks Riven

How do I transform my vertex with it?

Google matrix + vector multiplication.  It's a main component of linear algebra.  The x coordinate of the transform is located at row 0, column 3 and the y is at row 1, column 3.  OpenGL returns the matrix in column major order (so each column is consecutive), which means that x is element 12 and y is element 13 (and z would be 14).

Thanks lhkbob!

It took me a while to get it, but it works now!
