Check the completeness status of a framebuffer.

C Specification[edit]

GLenum glCheckFramebufferStatus( GLenum target );
GLenum glCheckNamedFramebufferStatus( GLuint framebuffer, GLenum target );


target - Specify the target to which the framebuffer is bound for glCheckFramebufferStatus , and the target against which framebuffer completeness of framebuffer is checked for glCheckNamedFramebufferStatus .
framebuffer - Specifies the name of the framebuffer object for glCheckNamedFramebufferStatus 


 glCheckFramebufferStatus and glCheckNamedFramebufferStatus return the completeness status of a framebuffer object when treated as a read or draw framebuffer, depending on the value of target .

For glCheckFramebufferStatus , the framebuffer checked is that bound to target , which must be GL_DRAW_FRAMEBUFFER , GL_READ_FRAMEBUFFER or GL_FRAMEBUFFER . GL_FRAMEBUFFER is equivalent to GL_DRAW_FRAMEBUFFER .

For glCheckNamedFramebufferStatus , framebuffer is zero or the name of the framebuffer object to check. If framebuffer is zero, then the status of the default read or draw framebuffer, as determined by target , is returned.

The return value is GL_FRAMEBUFFER_COMPLETE if the specified framebuffer is complete. Otherwise, the return value is determined as follows:* GL_FRAMEBUFFER_UNDEFINED is returned if the specified framebuffer is the default read or draw framebuffer, but the default framebuffer does not exist.

  •  GL_FRAMEBUFFER_INCOMPLETE_ATTACHMENT is returned if any of the framebuffer attachment points are framebuffer incomplete.
  •  GL_FRAMEBUFFER_INCOMPLETE_MISSING_ATTACHMENT is returned if the framebuffer does not have at least one image attached to it.
  •  GL_FRAMEBUFFER_INCOMPLETE_DRAW_BUFFER is returned if the value of GL_FRAMEBUFFER_ATTACHMENT_OBJECT_TYPE is GL_NONE for any color attachment point(s) named by GL_DRAW_BUFFERi .
  •  GL_FRAMEBUFFER_INCOMPLETE_READ_BUFFER is returned if GL_READ_BUFFER is not GL_NONE and the value of GL_FRAMEBUFFER_ATTACHMENT_OBJECT_TYPE is GL_NONE for the color attachment point named by GL_READ_BUFFER .
  •  GL_FRAMEBUFFER_UNSUPPORTED is returned if the combination of internal formats of the attached images violates an implementation-dependent set of restrictions.
  •  GL_FRAMEBUFFER_INCOMPLETE_MULTISAMPLE is returned if the value of GL_RENDERBUFFER_SAMPLES is not the same for all attached renderbuffers; if the value of GL_TEXTURE_SAMPLES is the not same for all attached textures; or, if the attached images are a mix of renderbuffers and textures, the value of GL_RENDERBUFFER_SAMPLES does not match the value of GL_TEXTURE_SAMPLES .
  •  GL_FRAMEBUFFER_INCOMPLETE_MULTISAMPLE is also returned if the value of GL_TEXTURE_FIXED_SAMPLE_LOCATIONS is not the same for all attached textures; or, if the attached images are a mix of renderbuffers and textures, the value of GL_TEXTURE_FIXED_SAMPLE_LOCATIONS is not GL_TRUE for all attached textures.
  •  GL_FRAMEBUFFER_INCOMPLETE_LAYER_TARGETS is returned if any framebuffer attachment is layered, and any populated attachment is not layered, or if all populated color attachments are not from textures of the same target.

Additionally, if an error occurs, zero is returned.



 GL_INVALID_OPERATION is generated by glCheckNamedFramebufferStatus if framebuffer is not zero or the name of an existing framebuffer object.
