glBindVertexArray: bind a vertex array object

Function Definition

 void glBindVertexArray(GLuint array​);
Specifies the name of the vertex array to bind.


glBindVertexArray binds the vertex array object with name array​. array​ is the name of a vertex array object previously returned from a call to glGenVertexArrays, or zero to break the existing vertex array object binding.

If no vertex array object with name array​ exists, one is created when array​ is first bound. If the bind is successful no change is made to the state of the vertex array object, and any previous vertex array object binding is broken.


GL_INVALID_OPERATION​ is generated if array​ is not zero or the name of a vertex array object previously returned from a call to glGenVertexArrays.
