[Up] C Specification

void glLoadName(
    GLuint	 name)

[Up] Parameters

Specifies a name that will replace the top value on the name stack.

[Up] Description

The name stack is used during selection mode to allow sets of rendering commands to be uniquely identified. It consists of an ordered set of unsigned integers. glLoadName causes name to replace the value on the top of the name stack, which is initially empty.

The name stack is always empty while the render mode is not GL_SELECT. Calls to glLoadName while the render mode is not GL_SELECT are ignored.
