WebGL2RenderingContext.vertexAttribIPointer()

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.vertexAttribIPointer() method of the WebGL 2 API specifies integer data formats and locations of vertex attributes in a vertex attributes array.

Syntax

void gl.vertexAttribIPointer(index, size, type, stride, offset);

Parameters

index
A GLuint specifying the index of the vertex attribute that is to be modified.
size
A GLint specifying the number of components per vertex attribute. Must be 1, 2, 3, or 4.
type
A GLenum specifying the data type of each component in the array. Must be one of: gl.BYTE, gl.UNSIGNED_BYTE, gl.SHORT, gl.UNSIGNED_SHORT, gl.INT, or gl.UNSIGNED_INT.
stride
A GLsizei specifying the offset in bytes between the beginning of consecutive vertex attributes.
offset
A GLintptr specifying an offset in bytes of the first component in the vertex attribute array. Must be a multiple of type.

Return value

None.

Examples

gl.vertexAttribIPointer(0, 3, gl.INT, 0, 12);
