The WebGLRenderingContext.uniform[1234][fi][v]() methods of the WebGL API specify values of uniform variables.


void gl.uniform1f(location, v0);
void gl.uniform1fv(location, value);
void gl.uniform1i(location, v0);
void gl.uniform1iv(location, value);

void gl.uniform2f(location, v0, v1);
void gl.uniform2fv(location, value);
void gl.uniform2i(location, v0, v1);
void gl.uniform2iv(location, value);

void gl.uniform3f(location, v0, v1, v2);
void gl.uniform3fv(location, value);
void gl.uniform3i(location, v0, v1, v2);
void gl.uniform3iv(location, value);

void gl.uniform4f(location, v0, v1, v2, v3);
void gl.uniform4fv(location, value);
void gl.uniform4i(location, v0, v1, v2, v3);
void gl.uniform4iv(location, value);


A WebGLUniformLocation object containing the location of the uniform attribute to modify.
value, v0, v1, v2, v3
A new value to be used for the uniform variable. Possible types:
  • A floating point Number for floating point values (methods with "f").
  • A Float32Array for floating point vector methods (methods with "fv").
  • An integer Number for integer values (methods with "i").
  • An int32Array for integer vector methods (methods with "iv").

Return value



gl.uniform1f(u_alpha, 0.8);
