glXIsDirect.3G man page

glXIsDirect — indicate whether direct rendering is enabled

C Specification

Bool glXIsDirect(Display * dpy, GLXContext ctx);

Parameters

dpy

Specifies the connection to the X server.

ctx

Specifies the GLX context that is being queried.

Description

glXIsDirect returns True if ctx is a direct rendering context, False otherwise. Direct rendering contexts pass rendering commands directly from the calling process's address space to the rendering system, bypassing the X server. Nondirect rendering contexts pass all rendering commands to the X server.

Errors

GLXBadContext is generated if ctx is not a valid GLX context.
