MDN’s new design is in Beta! A sneak peek:


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.uniformBlockBinding() method of the WebGL 2 API assigns binding points for active uniform blocks.


void gl.uniformBlockBinding(program, uniformBlockIndex, uniformBlockBinding);


A WebGLProgram containing the active uniform block whose binding to assign.
A GLuint specifying the index of the active uniform block within the program.
A GLuint specifying the binding point to which to bind the uniform block.

Return value



gl.uniformBlockBinding(program, 0, 1);
