Deprecated CGGLContext Functions

A function identified as deprecated has been superseded and may become unsupported in the future.

Deprecated in OS X v10.6

CGGLContextCreate

Creates a Quartz graphics context from an OpenGL context. (Deprecated in OS X v10.6.)

CGContextRef CGGLContextCreate (
   void *glContext,
   CGSize size,
   CGColorSpaceRef colorspace
);
Parameters
glContext

The context that the OpenGL system uses to manage OpenGL drawing.

size

The dimensions of the OpenGL viewport rectangle.

colorspace

An RGB color space that serves as the destination space when rendering device-independent colors. If NULL, Quartz uses the default RGB color space. Quartz retains the color space you pass in; on return, you may safely release it.

Return Value

A new Quartz graphics context. You are responsible for releasing this object by calling CGContextRelease.

Discussion

The use of this function is not recommended.

Creates a Quartz context from the OpenGL context glContext. The context establishes an OpenGL viewport rectangle with dimensions specified by the size parameter by calling glViewport(3G). If non-NULL, the colorspace parameter should be an RGB profile that specifies the destination space when rendering device-independent colors.

Availability
  • Available in OS X version 10.3 and later.
  • Deprecated in OS X v10.6.
Declared In
CGGLContext.h

CGGLContextUpdateViewportSize

Updates the size of the viewport associated with an OpenGL context. (Deprecated in OS X v10.6.)

void CGGLContextUpdateViewportSize (
   CGContextRef c,
   CGSize size
);
Parameters
context

A Quartz graphics context obtained by calling CGGLContextCreate.

size

The new dimensions of the OpenGL viewport.

Discussion

The use of this function is not recommended.

You should call this function whenever the size of the associated OpenGL context changes.

Availability
  • Available in OS X version 10.3 and later.
