WebGLRenderingContext.compressedTexSubImage2D()

The WebGLRenderingContext.compressedTexSubImage2D() method of the WebGL API specifies a two-dimensional sub-rectangle for a texture image in a compressed format.

Compressed image formats must be enabled by WebGL extensions before using this method or a WebGL2RenderingContext must be used.

Syntax

// WebGL 1:
void gl.compressedTexSubImage2D(target, level, xoffset, yoffset, width, height, format, ArrayBufferView? pixels);

// Additionally available in WebGL 2:
void gl.compressedTexSubImage2D(target, level, xoffset, yoffset, width, height, format, imageSize, offset);
void gl.compressedTexSubImage2D(target, level, xoffset, yoffset, width, height, format, ArrayBufferView srcData, optional srcOffset, optional srcLengthOverride);

Parameters

target

A GLenum specifying the binding point (target) of the active compressed texture. Possible values:

  • gl.TEXTURE_2D: A two-dimensional texture.
  • gl.TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_POSITIVE_X: Positive X face for a cube-mapped texture.
  • gl.TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_NEGATIVE_X: Negative X face for a cube-mapped texture.
  • gl.TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_POSITIVE_Y: Positive Y face for a cube-mapped texture.
  • gl.TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_NEGATIVE_Y: Negative Y face for a cube-mapped texture.
  • gl.TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_POSITIVE_Z: Positive Z face for a cube-mapped texture.
  • gl.TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_NEGATIVE_Z: Negative Z face for a cube-mapped texture.
level

A GLint specifying the level of detail. Level 0 is the base image level and level n is the nth mipmap reduction level.

xoffset

A GLint specifying the horizontal offset within the compressed texture image.

yoffset

A GLint specifying the vertical offset within the compressed texture image.

width

A GLsizei specifying the width of the compressed texture.

height

A GLsizei specifying the height of the compressed texture.

format
