Detailed Description

Class to define graphic driver capabilities. Notice that these options will be ignored if particular functionality does not provided by GL driver.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

◆ OpenGl_Caps()

OpenGl_Caps::OpenGl_Caps ( )

Default constructor - initialize with most optimal values.

◆ ~OpenGl_Caps()

virtual OpenGl_Caps::~OpenGl_Caps ( )
virtual

Destructor.

Member Function Documentation

◆ operator=()

OpenGl_Caps& OpenGl_Caps::operator= ( const OpenGl_Caps theCopy)

Copy maker.

Field Documentation

◆ buffersNoSwap

Standard_Boolean OpenGl_Caps::buffersNoSwap

Specify that driver should not swap back/front buffers at the end of frame. Useful when OCCT Viewer is integrated into existing OpenGL rendering pipeline as part, thus swapping part is performed outside.

OFF by default.

◆ compressedTexturesDisable

Standard_Boolean OpenGl_Caps::compressedTexturesDisable

Disables uploading of compressed texture formats native to GPU (OFF by default)

◆ contextCompatible

Standard_Boolean OpenGl_Caps::contextCompatible

Request backward-compatible GL context. This flag requires support in OpenGL driver.

Backward-compatible profile includes deprecated functionality like FFP (fixed-function pipeline), and might be useful for compatibility with application OpenGL code.

Most drivers support all features within backward-compatibility profile, but some limit functionality to OpenGL 2.1 (e.g. OS X) when core profile is not explicitly requested.

Requires OpenGL 3.2+ drivers. Has no effect on OpenGL ES 2.0+ drivers (which do not provie FFP compatibility). Interacts with ffpEnable option, which should be disabled within core profile.

ON by default.

◆ contextDebug

Standard_Boolean OpenGl_Caps::contextDebug

Request debug GL context. This flag requires support in OpenGL driver.

When turned on OpenGL driver emits error and warning messages to provided callback (see OpenGl_Context - messages will be printed to standard output). Affects performance - thus should not be turned on by products in released state.

OFF by default.

◆ contextMajorVersionUpper

Standard_Integer OpenGl_Caps::contextMajorVersionUpper

Synthetically restrict upper version of OpenGL functionality to be used. Should be used for debugging purposes only!

(-1, -1) by default, which means no restriction.

◆ contextMinorVersionUpper

Standard_Integer OpenGl_Caps::contextMinorVersionUpper

Specify that driver should not swap back/front buffers at the end of frame. Useful when OCCT Viewer is integrated into existing OpenGL rendering pipeline as part, thus swapping part is performed outside.

OFF by default.

◆ contextNoAccel

Standard_Boolean OpenGl_Caps::contextNoAccel

Disable hardware acceleration.

This flag overrides default behavior, when accelerated context always preferred over software ones:

  • on Windows will force Microsoft software implementation;
  • on Mac OS X, forces Apple software implementation.

Software implementations are dramatically slower - should never be used.

OFF by default. Currently implemented only for Windows (WGL) and Mac OS X (Cocoa).

◆ contextNoExtensions

Standard_Boolean OpenGl_Caps::contextNoExtensions

Disallow using OpenGL extensions. Should be used for debugging purposes only!

OFF by default.

◆ contextStereo

Standard_Boolean OpenGl_Caps::contextStereo

Request stereoscopic context (with Quad Buffer). This flag requires support in OpenGL driver.

OFF by default.

◆ contextSyncDebug

Standard_Boolean OpenGl_Caps::contextSyncDebug

Request debug GL context to emit messages within main thread (when contextDebug is specified!).

Some implementations performs GL rendering within dedicated thread(s), in this case debug messages will be pushed from unknown thread making call stack useless, since it does not interconnected to application calls. This option asks GL driver to switch into synchronized implementation. Affects performance - thus should not be turned on by products in released state.

OFF by default.

◆ ffpEnable

Standard_Boolean OpenGl_Caps::ffpEnable

Enables FFP (fixed-function pipeline), do not use built-in GLSL programs (OFF by default)

◆ glslDumpLevel

OpenGl_ShaderProgramDumpLevel OpenGl_Caps::glslDumpLevel

Print GLSL program source code. OFF by default.

◆ glslWarnings

Standard_Boolean OpenGl_Caps::glslWarnings

Print GLSL program compilation/linkage warnings, if any. OFF by default.

◆ isTopDownTextureUV

Standard_Boolean OpenGl_Caps::isTopDownTextureUV

Define if 2D texture UV coordinates are defined top-down or bottom-up. FALSE by default.

Proper rendering requires image texture uploading and UV texture coordinates being consistent, otherwise texture mapping might appear vertically flipped. Historically, OCCT used image library loading images bottom-up, so that applications have to generate UV accordingly (flip V when necessary, V' = 1.0 - V).

Graphic driver now compares this flag with image layout reported by Image_PixMap::IsTopDown(), and in case of mismatch applies implicit texture coordinates conversion in GLSL program.

◆ keepArrayData

Standard_Boolean OpenGl_Caps::keepArrayData

Disables freeing CPU memory after building VBOs (OFF by default)

◆ pntSpritesDisable

Standard_Boolean OpenGl_Caps::pntSpritesDisable

flag permits Point Sprites usage, will significantly affect performance (OFF by default)

◆ sRGBDisable

Standard_Boolean OpenGl_Caps::sRGBDisable

Disables sRGB rendering (OFF by default)

◆ suppressExtraMsg

Standard_Boolean OpenGl_Caps::suppressExtraMsg

Suppress redundant messages from debug GL context. ON by default.

◆ swapInterval

Standard_Integer OpenGl_Caps::swapInterval

controls swap interval - 0 for VSync off and 1 for VSync on, 1 by default

◆ usePolygonMode

Standard_Boolean OpenGl_Caps::usePolygonMode

Enables Polygon Mode instead of built-in GLSL programs (OFF by default; unsupported on OpenGL ES)

◆ useSystemBuffer

Standard_Boolean OpenGl_Caps::useSystemBuffer

Enables usage of system backbuffer for blitting (OFF by default on desktop OpenGL and ON on OpenGL ES for testing)

◆ vboDisable

Standard_Boolean OpenGl_Caps::vboDisable

disallow VBO usage for debugging purposes (OFF by default)
