A GLenum specifying which information to return. Possible values:
  • gl.QUERY_RESULT: Returns a GLuint containing the query result.
  • gl.QUERY_RESULT_AVAILABLE: Returns a GLboolean indicating whether or not a query result is available.

Return value

gl.beginQuery(gl.ANY_SAMPLES_PASSED, query);

var result = gl.getQueryParameters(query, gl.QUERY_RESULT);
