We employ Legendre-Galerkin spectral methods to solve state-constrained optimal control problems. The constraint on the state variable is an integration form. We choose one-dimensional case to illustrate the techniques. Meanwhile, we investigate the explicit formulae of constants within a posteriori error indicator.
