glXGetCurrentDisplay — get display for current context

C Specification

Display * glXGetCurrentDisplay(


glXGetCurrentDisplay returns the display for the current context. If no context is current, NULL is returned.

glXGetCurrentDisplay returns client-side information. It does not make a round-trip to the server, and therefore does not flush any pending events.


glXGetCurrentDisplay is only supported if the GLX version is 1.2 or greater.
