glGetColorTable — retrieve contents of a color lookup table

C Specification

void glGetColorTable( GLenum target,

	GLenum format,
	GLenum type,
	GLvoid *table )

Parameters

target

Must be GL_COLOR_TABLE, GL_POST_CONVOLUTION_COLOR_TABLE, or GL_POST_COLOR_MATRIX_COLOR_TABLE.

format

The  of the pixel data in table. The possible values are GL_RED, GL_GREEN, GL_BLUE, GL_ALPHA, GL_LUMINANCE, GL_LUMINANCE_ALPHA, GL_RGB, GL_BGR, GL_RGBA, and GL_BGRA.

type

The type of the pixel data in table. Symbolic constants GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, GL_BYTE, GL_BITMAP, GL_UNSIGNED_SHORT, GL_SHORT, GL_UNSIGNED_INT, GL_INT, GL_FLOAT, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE_3_3_2, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE_2_3_3_REV, GL_UNSIGNED_SHORT_5_6_5, GL_UNSIGNED_SHORT_5_6_5_REV, GL_UNSIGNED_SHORT_4_4_4_4, GL_UNSIGNED_SHORT_4_4_4_4_REV, GL_UNSIGNED_SHORT_5_5_5_1, GL_UNSIGNED_SHORT_1_5_5_5_REV, GL_UNSIGNED_INT_8_8_8_8, GL_UNSIGNED_INT_8_8_8_8_REV, GL_UNSIGNED_INT_10_10_10_2, and GL_UNSIGNED_INT_2_10_10_10_REV are accepted.

table

Pointer to a one-dimensional array of pixel data containing the contents of the color table.

Description

glGetColorTable returns in table the contents of the color table specified  by target. No pixel transfer operations are performed, but pixel  storage modes that are applicable to glReadPixels are performed.

Color components that are requested in the specified format, but which are not included in the internal
of the color lookup table, are returned as zero.  The assignments of internal color components to the components requested by format are

Internal ComponentResulting Component
redred
greengreen
blueblue
alphaalpha
luminancered
intensityred

Notes

glGetColorTable is present only if GL_ARB_imaging is returned when glGetString is called with an argument of GL_EXTENSIONS.

Errors

GL_INVALID_ENUM is generated if target is not one of the allowable values.

GL_INVALID_ENUM is generated if format is not one of the allowable values.

GL_INVALID_ENUM is generated if type is not one of the allowable values.

GL_INVALID_OPERATION is generated if type is one of GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE_3_3_2, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE_2_3_3_REV, GL_UNSIGNED_SHORT_5_6_5, or GL_UNSIGNED_SHORT_5_6_5_REV and format is not GL_RGB.

GL_INVALID_OPERATION is generated if type is one of GL_UNSIGNED_SHORT_4_4_4_4, GL_UNSIGNED_SHORT_4_4_4_4_REV, GL_UNSIGNED_SHORT_5_5_5_1, GL_UNSIGNED_SHORT_1_5_5_5_REV, GL_UNSIGNED_INT_8_8_8_8, GL_UNSIGNED_INT_8_8_8_8_REV, GL_UNSIGNED_INT_10_10_10_2, or GL_UNSIGNED_INT_2_10_10_10_REV and format is neither GL_RGBA nor GL_BGRA.

GL_INVALID_OPERATION is generated if glGetColorTable is executed between the execution of glBegin and the corresponding execution of glEnd.
