glViewport: set the viewport

Function Definition

 void glViewport(GLint x​, GLint y​, GLsizei width​, GLsizei height​);
x, y
Specify the lower left corner of the viewport rectangle, in pixels. The initial value is (0,0).
width, height
Specify the width and height of the viewport. When a GL context is first attached to a window, width​ and height​ are set to the dimensions of that window.

Description

glViewport specifies the affine transformation of x and y from normalized device coordinates to window coordinates. Let (xnd, ynd) be normalized device coordinates. Then the window coordinates (xw, yw) are computed as follows:


Viewport width and height are silently clamped to a range that depends on the implementation. To query this range, call glGet with argument GL_MAX_VIEWPORT_DIMS​.

Errors

GL_INVALID_VALUE​ is generated if either width​ or height​ is negative.

Associated Gets

glGet with argument GL_VIEWPORT​

glGet with argument GL_MAX_VIEWPORT_DIMS​
