Sample text

Modify the initializeGL() function to include the initialization of the vertex buffer and the shader program. 0); // set the color to be cleared // A. js // B. "); } } The code in bold shows you should modify the initializeGL() function to call the initSquareBuffer() and initSimpleShader() functions after successfully obtaining the WebGL context. 2. Replace the clearCanvas() function with the drawSquare() function for drawing the defined square. TRIANGLE_STRIP, 0, 4); } This code shows the steps to draw with WebGL.

This organization does not lend itself to supporting changes in functionality or growth in complexity. In the next sections, you will encapsulate and abstract portions of this example to form the basis of the game engine framework. Abstraction with JavaScript Objects The previous project decomposed the drawing of a square into logical modules and implemented the modules as files containing global functions and variables. In software engineering, this solution process is referred to as functional decomposition, and the implementation is referred to as procedural programming.

This chapter examines the fundamentals of drawing with WebGL, designs abstractions to encapsulate irrelevant details to facilitate easy programming, and builds the foundational infrastructure to organize a complex source code system to support future expansion. Canvas for Drawing To draw, you must first define and dedicate an area within the web page. We will begin with using the HTML canvas element to define an area for WebGL drawing. The HTML5 Canvas Project This project demonstrates how to draw and clear a canvas element on a web page.
