Detailed Description

Introduction

This class supports shader programs written in the OpenGL Shading Language (GLSL) and in the OpenGL/ES Shading Language (GLSL/ES).

QOpenGLShader and QOpenGLShaderProgram shelter the programmer from the details of compiling and linking vertex and fragment shaders.

The following example creates a vertex shader program using the supplied source code . Once compiled and linked, the shader program is activated in the current QOpenGLContext by calling bind() :

QOpenGLShader shader(QOpenGLShader::Vertex);
shader.compileSourceCode(code);

QOpenGLShaderProgram program(context);
program.addShader(&shader);
program.link();

program.bind();

Writing Portable Shaders

Shader programs can be difficult to reuse across OpenGL implementations because of varying levels of support for standard vertex attributes and uniform variables. In particular, GLSL/ES lacks all of the standard variables that are present on desktop OpenGL systems: gl_Vertex , gl_Normal , gl_Color , and so on. Desktop OpenGL lacks the variable qualifiers highp , mediump , and lowp .

The QOpenGLShaderProgram class makes the process of writing portable shaders easier by prefixing all shader programs with the following lines on desktop OpenGL:

#define highp
#define mediump
#define lowp

This makes it possible to run most GLSL/ES shader programs on desktop systems. The programmer should restrict themselves to just features that are present in GLSL/ES, and avoid standard variable names that only work on the desktop.

Simple Shader Example

program.addShaderFromSourceCode(QOpenGLShader::Vertex,
    "attribute highp vec4 vertex;\n"
    "uniform highp mat4 matrix;\n"
    "void main(void)\n"
    "{\n"
    "   gl_Position = matrix * vertex;\n"
    "}");
program.addShaderFromSourceCode(QOpenGLShader::Fragment,
    "uniform mediump vec4 color;\n"
    "void main(void)\n"
    "{\n"
    "   gl_FragColor = color;\n"
    "}");
program.link();
program.bind();

int vertexLocation = program.attributeLocation("vertex");
int matrixLocation = program.uniformLocation("matrix");
int colorLocation = program.uniformLocation("color");

With the above shader program active, we can draw a green triangle as follows:

static GLfloat const triangleVertices[] = {
    60.0f,  10.0f,  0.0f,
    110.0f, 110.0f, 0.0f,
    10.0f,  110.0f, 0.0f
};

QColor color(0, 255, 0, 255);

QMatrix4x4 pmvMatrix;
pmvMatrix.ortho(rect());

program.enableAttributeArray(vertexLocation);
program.setAttributeArray(vertexLocation, triangleVertices, 3);
program.setUniformValue(matrixLocation, pmvMatrix);
program.setUniformValue(colorLocation, color);

glDrawArrays(GL_TRIANGLES, 0, 3);

program.disableAttributeArray(vertexLocation);

Binary Shaders and Programs

Binary shaders may be specified using glShaderBinary() on the return value from shaderId() . The QOpenGLShader instance containing the binary can then be added to the shader program with addShader() and linked in the usual fashion with link() .

Binary programs may be specified using glProgramBinaryOES() on the return value from programId() . Then the application should call link() , which will notice that the program has already been specified and linked, allowing other operations to be performed on the shader program. The shader program’s id can be explicitly created using the create() function.

Caching Program Binaries

As of Qt 5.9, support for caching program binaries on disk is built in. To enable this, switch to using addCacheableShaderFromSourceCode() and addCacheableShaderFromSourceFile() . With an OpenGL ES 3.x context or support for GL_ARB_get_program_binary , this will transparently cache program binaries under GenericCacheLocation or CacheLocation . When support is not available, calling the cacheable function variants is equivalent to the normal ones.

Note

Some drivers do not have any binary formats available, even though they advertise the extension or offer OpenGL ES 3.0. In this case program binary support will be disabled.

Parameters
  • typeShaderType

  • sourceQByteArray

Return type

bool

PySide2.QtGui.QOpenGLShaderProgram.addCacheableShaderFromSourceCode(type, source)
Parameters
  • typeShaderType

  • source – str

Return type

bool

Registers the shader of the specified type and source to this program. Unlike addShaderFromSourceCode() , this function does not perform compilation. Compilation is deferred to link() , and may not happen at all, because link() may potentially use a program binary from Qt’s shader disk cache. This will typically lead to a significant increase in performance.

Returns true if the shader has been registered or, in the non-cached case, compiled successfully; false if there was an error. The compilation error messages can be retrieved via log() .

When the disk cache is disabled, via AA_DisableShaderDiskCache for example, or the OpenGL context has no support for context binaries, calling this function is equivalent to addShaderFromSourceCode() .

PySide2.QtGui.QOpenGLShaderProgram.addCacheableShaderFromSourceCode(type, source)
Parameters
  • typeShaderType

  • source – unicode

Return type

bool

PySide2.QtGui.QOpenGLShaderProgram.addCacheableShaderFromSourceFile(type, fileName)
Parameters
  • typeShaderType

  • fileName – unicode

Return type

bool

Registers the shader of the specified type and fileName to this program. Unlike addShaderFromSourceFile() , this function does not perform compilation. Compilation is deferred to link() , and may not happen at all, because link() may potentially use a program binary from Qt’s shader disk cache. This will typically lead to a significant increase in performance.

Returns true if the file has been read successfully, false if the file could not be opened or the normal, non-cached compilation of the shader has failed. The compilation error messages can be retrieved via log() .

When the disk cache is disabled, via AA_DisableShaderDiskCache for example, or the OpenGL context has no support for context binaries, calling this function is equivalent to addShaderFromSourceFile() .

PySide2.QtGui.QOpenGLShaderProgram.addShader(shader)
Parameters

shaderQOpenGLShader

Return type

bool

Adds a compiled shader to this shader program. Returns true if the shader could be added, or false otherwise.

Ownership of the shader object remains with the caller. It will not be deleted when this QOpenGLShaderProgram instance is deleted. This allows the caller to add the same shader to multiple shader programs.

PySide2.QtGui.QOpenGLShaderProgram.bind()
Return type

bool

Binds this shader program to the active QOpenGLContext and makes it the current shader program. Any previously bound shader program is released. This is equivalent to calling glUseProgram() on programId() . Returns true if the program was successfully bound; false otherwise. If the shader program has not yet been linked, or it needs to be re-linked, this function will call link() .

Parameters
  • name – unicode

  • locationint

PySide2.QtGui.QOpenGLShaderProgram.bindAttributeLocation(name, location)
Parameters
  • name – str

  • locationint

Binds the attribute name to the specified location . This function can be called before or after the program has been linked. Any attributes that have not been explicitly bound when the program is linked will be assigned locations automatically.

When this function is called after the program has been linked, the program will need to be relinked for the change to take effect.

PySide2.QtGui.QOpenGLShaderProgram.bindAttributeLocation(name, location)
Parameters
  • nameQByteArray

  • locationint

PySide2.QtGui.QOpenGLShaderProgram.create()
Return type

bool

Requests the shader program’s id to be created immediately. Returns true if successful; false otherwise.

This function is primarily useful when combining QOpenGLShaderProgram with other OpenGL functions that operate directly on the shader program id, like GL_OES_get_program_binary .

When the shader program is used normally, the shader program’s id will be created on demand.

Note

This returns the global OpenGL state value. It is not specific to this QOpenGLShaderProgram instance.

Note

This function is only supported with OpenGL >= 4.0 and will not return valid results with OpenGL ES 3.2.

PySide2.QtGui.QOpenGLShaderProgram.defaultOuterTessellationLevels()
Return type

Note

This returns the global OpenGL state value. It is not specific to this QOpenGLShaderProgram instance.

Note

This function is only supported with OpenGL >= 4.0 and will not return valid results with OpenGL ES 3.2.

Parameters

name – str

This is an overloaded function.

static PySide2.QtGui.QOpenGLShaderProgram.hasOpenGLShaderPrograms([context=None])
Parameters

contextQOpenGLContext

Return type

bool

Returns true if shader programs written in the OpenGL Shading Language (GLSL) are supported on this system; false otherwise.

The context is used to resolve the GLSL extensions. If context is None , then currentContext() is used.

PySide2.QtGui.QOpenGLShaderProgram.isLinked()
Return type

bool

Returns true if this shader program has been linked; false otherwise.

See also

link()

Return type

bool

Links together the shaders that were added to this program with addShader() . Returns true if the link was successful or false otherwise. If the link failed, the error messages can be retrieved with log() .

Subclasses can override this function to initialize attributes and uniform variables for use in specific shader programs.

If the shader program was already linked, calling this function again will force it to be re-linked.

When shaders were added to this program via addCacheableShaderFromSourceCode() or addCacheableShaderFromSourceFile() , program binaries are supported, and a cached binary is available on disk, actual compilation and linking are skipped. Instead, will initialize the program with the binary blob via glProgramBinary(). If there is no cached version of the program or it was generated with a different driver version, the shaders will be compiled from source and the program will get linked normally. This allows seamless upgrading of the graphics drivers, without having to worry about potentially incompatible binary formats.

The levels argument should be a QVector consisting of 2 floats. Not all of the values make sense for all tessellation modes. If you specify a vector with fewer than 2 elements, the remaining elements will be given a default value of 1.

Note

This modifies global OpenGL state and is not specific to this QOpenGLShaderProgram instance. You should call this in your render function when needed, as QOpenGLShaderProgram will not apply this for you. This is purely a convenience function.

Note

PySide2.QtGui.QOpenGLShaderProgram.setPatchVertexCount(count)
Parameters

countint

Use this function to specify to OpenGL the number of vertices in a patch to count . A patch is a custom OpenGL primitive whose interpretation is entirely defined by the tessellation shader stages.

When using OpenGL tessellation, the only primitive that can be rendered with glDraw*() functions is GL_PATCHES .

This is equivalent to calling glPatchParameteri(GL_PATCH_VERTICES, count).

Note

This modifies global OpenGL state and is not specific to this QOpenGLShaderProgram instance. You should call this in your render function when needed, as QOpenGLShaderProgram will not apply this for you. This is purely a convenience function.
