Declaration[edit]

Description[edit]

gl_VertexIDis a vertex language input variable that holds an integer index for the vertex. The index is implicitly generated byglDrawArraysand other commands that do not reference the content of the GL_ELEMENT_ARRAY_BUFFER , or explicitly generated from the content of the GL_ELEMENT_ARRAY_BUFFER by commands such as glDrawElements . For glDrawElements forms that take a basevertex ,gl_VertexIDwill have this value added to the index from the buffer.
