WEBGL_draw_buffers.drawBuffersWEBGL()

The WEBGL_draw_buffers.drawBuffersWEBGL() method is part of the WebGL API and allows you to define the draw buffers to which all fragment colors are written.

This method is part of the WEBGL_draw_buffers extension.

Note: When using WebGL2, this method is available as gl.drawBuffers() by default and the constants are named gl.COLOR_ATTACHMENT1 etc. without the "WEBGL" suffix.

Syntax

void gl.getExtension('WEBGL_draw_buffers').drawBuffersWEBGL(buffers);

Parameters

  • gl.NONE: The fragment shader is not written to any color buffer.
  • gl.BACK: The fragment shader is written to the back color buffer.
  • ext.COLOR_ATTACHMENT0_WEBGL The fragment shader is written the nth color attachment of the framebuffer.
  • ext.COLOR_ATTACHMENT1_WEBGL
  • ext.COLOR_ATTACHMENT2_WEBGL
  • ext.COLOR_ATTACHMENT3_WEBGL
  • ext.COLOR_ATTACHMENT4_WEBGL
  • ext.COLOR_ATTACHMENT5_WEBGL
  • ext.COLOR_ATTACHMENT6_WEBGL
  • ext.COLOR_ATTACHMENT7_WEBGL
  • ext.COLOR_ATTACHMENT8_WEBGL
  • ext.COLOR_ATTACHMENT9_WEBGL
  • ext.COLOR_ATTACHMENT10_WEBGL
  • ext.COLOR_ATTACHMENT11_WEBGL
  • ext.COLOR_ATTACHMENT12_WEBGL
  • ext.COLOR_ATTACHMENT13_WEBGL
  • ext.COLOR_ATTACHMENT14_WEBGL
  • ext.COLOR_ATTACHMENT15_WEBGL

Return value

None.
