View Full Version : Occlusion Query -> GL Error: Invalid Ops.

Hi,

when using ARB_occlusion_query or NV_occlusion_query i get a GL Error (Invalid Operands) at the line where the queries' results are retrieved. I used the code example in the ARB/NV extension spec as a guideline but i cannot find anything wrong in the code.

Any idea/hints?

Thank you very much in advance.

regards,
Stephan






if( !GLEW_NV_occlusion_query ) return;
glDepthFunc( GL_LEQUAL );

glDisable( GL_TEXTURE_2D );

Point3D vPt;
glPointSize( 64.0f );
int i=0;
glColorMask(GL_FALSE,GL_FALSE,GL_FALSE,GL_FALSE);
glDepthMask(GL_FALSE);
for( float fAng = 0.0f; fAng < PI*2.0f, i < 8; fAng += 0.25*PI, i++ )
{
vPt = vRight_ * sin(fAng) * fSize_ + vUp_ * cos(fAng) *fSize_ + vCurrentSunPos_;
glColorMask(GL_FALSE,GL_FALSE,GL_FALSE,GL_FALSE); glDepthMask(GL_FALSE);
braucht!.
assert( 1+i < 9 );
glBeginOcclusionQueryNV( uiOcclusionQuery_[1+i] );
glBegin(GL_POINTS);
glVertex3f( vPt.x, vPt.y, vPt.z );
glEnd();
glEndOcclusionQueryNV();
}

glColorMask(GL_TRUE,GL_TRUE,GL_TRUE,GL_TRUE);
glDepthMask(GL_TRUE);

for(int i=1; i < 9; i++ )
{
// SKip the [0] result for now!
glGetOcclusionQueryuivNV( uiOcclusionQuery_[i], GL_PIXEL_COUNT_NV,&amp;uiVisibility_[i]);

}

The spec contains the conditions which result in an invalid operation. Make sure you didn't hit one of them.

Here's the list:

* What happens if glBeginOcclusionQueryNV is called when an
occlusion query is already outstanding for a different object?

RESOLVED: This is a GL_INVALID_OPERATION error.

If BeginOcclusionQueryNV is called with an unused id, that id is
marked as used and associated with a new occlusion query object. If
it is called while another occlusion query is active, an
INVALID_OPERATION error is generated. If EndOcclusionQueryNV is
called while no occlusion query is active, an INVALID_OPERATION error
is generated. Calling either GenOCclusionQueriesNV or
DeleteOcclusionQueriesNV while an occlusion query is active causes an
INVALID_OPERATION error to be generated.

If the occlusion query object named by id is currently active, then
an INVALID_OPERATION error is generated.


- Means, make sure your glGenQueries has succeeded. (Where is it?)
- You might want to issue a glFlush after the final glEndOcclusionQuery to start processing immediately.
- The correct way is to loop on glGetOcclusionQueryuivNV(..., GL_PIXEL_COUNT_AVAILABLE_NV, ...); before querying the actual GL_PIXEL_COUNT_NV.

Other tips.
Do not call glDisable inside the for loop where you issue the occlusions, once outside is enough.
Do not use a small letter 'L' as variable. It's too easy to read for '1' (digit one).
What is 'l' in your code?

Your first for-loop is called 7 times. The last can be called eight times, if l == 0.

Thank you very much Relic!

I wasn't waiting for the query to finish. that caused the errors.

glColorMask inside the four loop was from a comment. isn't there in the real code.

Glad to help. Nice math on your web page!
