Magnum::GL::PrimitiveQuery class

Query for primitives.

Queries count of generated primitives from vertex shader, geometry shader or transform feedback. Example usage:

GL::PrimitiveQuery q{GL::PrimitiveQuery::Target::PrimitivesGenerated};

q.begin();
// rendering...
q.end();

if(!q.resultAvailable()) {
    // do some work until to give OpenGL some time...
}

// ...or block until the result is available
UnsignedInt primitiveCount = q.result<UnsignedInt>();

Enum documentation

enum class Magnum::GL::PrimitiveQuery::Target: GLenum

Query target.

Enumerators
PrimitivesGenerated

Count of primitives generated from vertex shader or geometry shader. When used with begin(UnsignedInt), the index must be lower than TransformFeedback::maxVertexStreams(). Use result<UnsignedInt>() or result<Int>() to retrieve the result.

TransformFeedbackPrimitivesWritten

Count of primitives written to transform feedback buffer. When used with begin(UnsignedInt), the index must be lower than TransformFeedback::maxVertexStreams(). Use result<UnsignedInt>() or result<Int>() to retrieve the result.

TransformFeedbackOverflow

Transform feedback overflow. When used with begin(UnsignedInt), the index must be 0. Use result<bool>() to retrieve the result.

TransformFeedbackStreamOverflow

Transform feedback stream overflow. When used with begin(UnsignedInt), the index must be lower than TransformFeedback::maxVertexStreams(). Use result<bool>() to retrieve the result.

Function documentation

static PrimitiveQuery Magnum::GL::PrimitiveQuery::wrap(GLuint id, Target target, ObjectFlags flags = {})

Wrap existing OpenGL primitive query object.

Parameters
id OpenGL primitive query ID
target Query target
flags Object creation flags

The id is expected to be of an existing OpenGL query object. Unlike query created using constructor, the OpenGL object is by default not deleted on destruction, use flags for different behavior.

Magnum::GL::PrimitiveQuery::PrimitiveQuery(Target target) explicit

Constructor.

Creates new OpenGL query object. If ARB_direct_state_access (part of OpenGL 4.5) is not available, the query is created on first use.

Magnum::GL::PrimitiveQuery::PrimitiveQuery(NoCreateT) explicit noexcept

Construct without creating the underlying OpenGL object.

The constructed instance is equivalent to moved-from state. Useful in cases where you will overwrite the instance later anyway. Move another object over it to make it useful.

This function can be safely used for constructing (and later destructing) objects even without any OpenGL context being active.

void Magnum::GL::PrimitiveQuery::begin()

Begin query.

Begins counting until end() is called. Equivalent to calling begin(UnsignedInt) with index set to 0.

void Magnum::GL::PrimitiveQuery::begin(UnsignedInt index)

Begin indexed query.

Begins counting until end() is called.

void Magnum::GL::PrimitiveQuery::end()

End query.

Ends the non-indexed or indexed query started with begin() or begin(UnsignedInt). The result can be then retrieved by calling result().
