glIsShader: Determines if a name corresponds to a shader object

Function Definition

 GLboolean glIsShader(GLuint shader);
Specifies a potential shader object.


glIsShader returns GL_TRUE​ if shader is the name of a shader object previously created with glCreateShader and not yet deleted with glDeleteShader. If shader is zero or a non-zero value that is not the name of a shader object, or if an error occurs, glIsShader returns GL_FALSE​.


No error is generated if shader is not a valid shader object name.

A shader object marked for deletion with glDeleteShader but still attached to a program object is still considered a shader object and glIsShader will return GL_TRUE​.

Associated Gets

glGetAttachedShaders with a valid program object

glGetShader with arguments shader and a parameter to be queried

glGetShaderInfoLog with argument object

glGetShaderSource with argument object
