WebGL2RenderingContext.getQuery()

The WebGL2RenderingContext.getQuery() method of the WebGL 2 API returns the currently active WebGLQuery for the target, or null.

Syntax

WebGLQuery gl.getQuery(target, pname);

Parameters

target
A GLenum specifying the target of the query. Possible values:
  • gl.ANY_SAMPLES_PASSED: Specifies an occlusion query: these queries detect whether an object is visible (whether the scoped drawing commands pass the depth test and if so, how many samples pass).
  • gl.ANY_SAMPLES_PASSED_CONSERVATIVE: Same as above above, but less accurate and faster version.
  • gl.TRANSFORM_FEEDBACK_PRIMITIVES_WRITTEN: Number of primitives that are written to transform feedback buffers.
pname
A GLenum specifying the query object target. Must be gl.CURRENT_QUERY.

Return value

A WebGLQuery object.

Examples

var currentQuery = gl.getQuery(gl.ANY_SAMPLES_PASSED, gl.CURRENT_QUERY);
