glGetProgramResourceLocation — query the location of a named resource within a program
|const char * name
The name of a program object whose resources to query.
A token identifying the interface within
program containing the resource named
The name of the resource to query the location of.
glGetProgramResourceLocation returns the location assigned
to the variable named
name in interface
programInterface of program
program must be the name of a program that has been
be one of
The value -1 will be returned if an error occurs, if
name does not identify an active variable on
programInterface, or if
name identifies an active variable that does
not have a valid location assigned, as described above. The locations
returned by these commands are the same locations returned when querying
GL_LOCATION_INDEX resource properties.
A string provided to
glGetProgramResourceLocation is considered to match an active variable if:
the string exactly matches the name of the active variable
if the string identifies the base name of an active array, where the string would exactly match the name of the variable if the suffix "" were appended to the string
if the string identifies an active element of the array, where the string ends with the concatenation of the "[" character, an integer with no "+" sign, extra leading zeroes, or whitespace identifying an array element, and the "]" character, the integer is less than the number of active elements of the array variable, and where the string would exactly match the enumerated name of the array if the decimal integer were replaced with zero.
Any other string is considered not to identify an active variable. If the
string specifies an element of an array variable,
glGetProgramResourceLocation returns the
location assigned to that element. If it
specifies the base name of an array, it identifies the resources
associated with the first element of the array.
GL_INVALID_VALUE is generated if
is not the name of an existing program object.
GL_INVALID_ENUM is generated if
is not one of the accepted interface types.
GL_INVALID_OPERATION is generated if
has not been linked successfully.
