Magnum::Platform::WindowlessWindowsEglContext class

Windowless Windows/EGL context.

GL context using pure WINAPI and EGL, used in WindowlessWindowsEglApplication.

Meant to be used when there is a need to manage (multiple) GL contexts manually. See Manually managing windowless contexts for more information. If no other application header is included, this class is also aliased to Platform::WindowlessGLContext.

Function documentation

Magnum::Platform::WindowlessWindowsEglContext::WindowlessWindowsEglContext(const Configuration& configuration, GLContext* context = nullptr) explicit

Constructor.

Parameters
configuration Context configuration
context Optional Magnum context instance constructed using NoCreate to manage driver workarounds

Once the context is created, make it current using makeCurrent() and create Platform::GLContext instance to be able to use Magnum.

Magnum::Platform::WindowlessWindowsEglContext::WindowlessWindowsEglContext(NoCreateT) explicit

Construct without creating the context.

Move a instance with created context over to make it usable.

Magnum::Platform::WindowlessWindowsEglContext::~WindowlessWindowsEglContext()

Destructor.

Destroys the context, if any.

bool Magnum::Platform::WindowlessWindowsEglContext::makeCurrent()

Make the context current.

Prints error message and returns false on failure, otherwise returns true. If the context is current on another thread, you have to release() it there first — an OpenGL context can't be current in multiple threads at the same time.

bool Magnum::Platform::WindowlessWindowsEglContext::release() new in Git master

Release current context.

Releases a context previously made current using makeCurrent(). Prints error message and returns false on failure, otherwise returns true.

EGLContext Magnum::Platform::WindowlessWindowsEglContext::glContext() new in 2020.06

Underlying OpenGL context.

Use in case you need to call EGL functionality directly or in order to create a shared context. Returns nullptr in case the context was not created yet.
