The glGetTexEnvfv and glGetTexEnviv functions return texture environment parameters.

void glGetTexEnvfv(
  GLenum target,
  GLenum pname,
  GLfloat *params

void glGetTexEnviv(
  GLenum target,
  GLenum pname,
  GLint *params


A texture environment. Must be GL_TEXTURE_ENV.
The symbolic name of a texture environment parameter. The following values are accepted:
Value Meaning
GL_TEXTURE_ENV_MODE The params parameter returns the single-valued texture environment mode, a symbolic constant.
GL_TEXTURE_ENV_COLOR The params parameter returns four integer or floating-point values that are the texture environment color. Integer values, when requested, are linearly mapped from the internal floating-point representation such that 1.0 maps to the most positive representable integer, and 1.0 maps to the most negative representable integer.

Returns the requested data.


The glGetTexEnv function returns in params selected values of a texture environment that was specified with glTexEnv. The target parameter specifies a texture environment. Currently, only one texture environment is defined and supported: GL_TEXTURE_ENV.

The pname parameter names a specific texture environment parameter.

If an error is generated, no change is made to the contents of params.
