glIsQuery — determine if a name corresponds to a query object

C Specification

GLboolean glIsQuery(GLuint id);



Specifies a value that may be the name of a query object.


glIsQuery returns GL_TRUE if id is currently the name of a query object. If id is zero, or is a non-zero value that is not currently the name of a query object, or if an error occurs, glIsQuery returns GL_FALSE.

A name returned by glGenQueries, but not yet associated with a query object by calling glBeginQuery, is not the name of a query object.


glIsQuery is available only if the GL version is 1.5 or greater.


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