We simply are looking to colour our dart during this instance and so we've got techniques. we will use a unmarried shader application and set a uniform flag that determines no matter if we need the shader to take advantage of a texture for every item in our scene, or we will be able to create and bind a number of shader courses, switching them as wanted. we'll elect the second one alternative. the next code amendment redefines our variables as arrays: COLOR_SHADER = zero, TEXTURE_SHADER = 1, NUM_SHADERS = 2, shaderPrograms = [], fragmentShaders = [], vertexShaders = [], vertexPositionAttributes = [], vertexColorAttributes = [], textureCoordAttributes = [], Our shaders are bodily kept within the documents shader. vs, shader. fs, tex_shader. vs, and tex_shader. fs. the 1st shader documents stay kind of like within the earlier instance. The final now contain texture processing and don't go in colour facts. directory 7-24.
