WebGL2RenderingContext.getSamplerParameter()

This is an experimental technology
Because this technology's specification has not stabilized, check the compatibility table for usage in various browsers. Also note that the syntax and behavior of an experimental technology is subject to change in future versions of browsers as the specification changes.

The WebGL2RenderingContext.getSamplerParameter() method of the WebGL 2 API returns parameter information of a WebGLSampler object.

Syntax

any gl.getSamplerParameter(sampler, pname);

Parameters

sampler
A WebGLSampler object.
pname
A GLenum specifying which information to return. Possible values:
  • gl.TEXTURE_COMPARE_FUNC: Returns a GLenum indicating the texture comparison function.
  • gl.TEXTURE_COMPARE_MODE: Returns a GLenum indicating the texture comparison mode.
  • gl.TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER: Returns a GLenum indicating the texture magnification filter.
  • gl.TEXTURE_MAX_LOD: Returns a GLfloat indicating the maximum level-of-detail value.
  • gl.TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER: Returns a GLenum indicating the texture minification filter
  • gl.TEXTURE_MIN_LOD: Returns a GLfloat indicating the minimum level-of-detail value.
  • gl.TEXTURE_WRAP_R: Returns a GLenum indicating the texture wrapping function for the texture coordinate r.
  • gl.TEXTURE_WRAP_S: Returns a GLenum indicating the texture wrapping function for the texture coordinate s.
  • gl.TEXTURE_WRAP_T: Returns a GLenum indicating the texture wrapping function for the texture coordinate t.

Return value

Depends on the pname parameter, either a GLenum or a GLfloat.

Examples

var sampler = gl.createSampler();
gl.getSamplerParameter(sampler, gl.TEXTURE_COMPARE_FUNC);
