WebGL2RenderingContext.renderbufferStorageMultisample()

This is an experimental technology
Check the Browser compatibility table carefully before using this in production.

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
A GLsizei specifying the number of samples to be used for the renderbuffer storage.

  • 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
