Detailed Description

Encapsulates a Shader Program.

A shader program consists of several different shaders, such as vertex and fragment shaders.

Qt3D will automatically populate a set of default uniforms if they are encountered during the shader instrospection phase.

Member Function Documentation

QShaderProgram::QShaderProgram(Qt3DCore::QNode *parent = nullptr)

Default constructs an instance of QShaderProgram.

[virtual] QShaderProgram::~QShaderProgram()

Destroys the instance of QShaderProgram. The destructor is virtual.

[static] QByteArray QShaderProgram::loadSource(const QUrl &sourceUrl)

Returns the shader code loaded from sourceUrl.

Note: This function can be invoked via the meta-object system and from QML. See Q_INVOKABLE.

[override virtual protected] void QShaderProgram::sceneChangeEvent(const Qt3DCore::QSceneChangePtr &change)

Reimplemented from QNode::sceneChangeEvent().

Posts a scene change with parameter change.

void QShaderProgram::setShaderCode(Qt3DRender::QShaderProgram::ShaderType type, const QByteArray &shaderCode)

Sets the shader code for type of shader to the shaderCode.

See also shaderCode().

QByteArray QShaderProgram::shaderCode(Qt3DRender::QShaderProgram::ShaderType type) const

Returns the shader code for type.

See also setShaderCode().

Qt3DRender::QShaderProgram::Status QShaderProgram::status() const

Returns the status of the current shader program.

Note: Getter function for property status.
