This example code shows what are and are not dynamically uniform expressions.

```
in vec3 fromPrevious;
in uvec2 fromRange;
const int foo = 5;
const uvec2 range = uvec2(2, 5);
uniform vec2 pairs;
uniform sampler2d tex;
void main()
{
foo; // constant expressions are dynamically uniform.
uint value = 21; // 'value' is dynamically uniform.
value = range.x; // still dynamically uniform.
value = range.y + fromRange.y; // not dynamically uniform; current contents come from a non-dynamically uniform source.
value = 4; // dynamically uniform again.
if (fromPrevious.y < 3.14)
value = 12;
value; // NOT dynamically uniform. Current contents depend on 'fromPrevious', an input variable.
float number = abs(pairs.x); // 'number' is dynamically uniform.
number = sin(pairs.y); // still dynamically uniform.
number = cos(fromPrevious.x); // not dynamically uniform.
vec4 colors = texture(tex, pairs.xy); // dynamically uniform, even though it comes from a texture.
// It uses the same texture coordinate, thus getting the same texel every time.
colors = texture(tex, fromPrevious.xy); // not dynamically uniform.
for(int i = range.x; i < range.y; ++i)
{
// loop initialized with, compared against, and incremented by dynamically uniform expressions.
i; // Therefore, 'i' is dynamically uniform, even though it changes.
}
for(int i = fromRange.x; i < fromRange.y; ++i)
{
i; // 'i' is not dynamically uniform; 'fromRange' is not dynamically uniform.
}
}
```
