WebGL2RenderingContext.renderbufferStorageMultisample()

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.renderbufferStorageMultisample() method of the WebGL 2 API returns creates and initializes a renderbuffer object's data store and allows specifying a number of samples to be used.

Syntax

void gl.renderbufferStorageMultisample(target, samples, internalFormat, width, height);

Parameters

target
A GLenum specifying the target renderbuffer object. Possible values:
  • gl.RENDERBUFFER: Buffer data storage for single images in a renderable internal format.
samples

  • gl.STENCIL_INDEX8
width
A GLsizei specifying the width of the renderbuffer in pixels.
height
A GLsizei specifying the height of the renderbuffer in pixels.

Return value

None.

Examples

gl.renderbufferStorageMultisample(gl.RENDERBUFFER, 4, gl.RBGA4, 256, 256);
