Parameters[edit]

pname - Specifies the parameter value to be returned for non-indexed versions of glGet . The symbolic constants in the list below are accepted.

index - Specifies the index of the particular element being queried.

Description[edit]

These commands return values for simple state variables in GL. pname is a symbolic constant indicating the state variable to be returned, and data is a pointer to an array of the indicated type in which to place the returned data.

Type conversion is performed if data has a different type than the state variable value being requested. If glGetBooleanv is called, a floating-point (or integer) value is converted to GL_FALSE if and only if it is 0.0 (or 0). Otherwise, it is converted to GL_TRUE . If glGetIntegerv is called, boolean values are returned as GL_TRUE or GL_FALSE , and most floating-point values are rounded to the nearest integer value. Floating-point colors and normals, however, are returned with a linear mapping that maps 1.0 to the most positive representable integer value and [math][/math] to the most negative representable integer value. If glGetFloatv or glGetDoublev is called, boolean values are returned as GL_TRUE or GL_FALSE , and integer values are converted to floating-point values.
