Description

3 years ago
Since there's already an actor for WebGL, shader and shader program, this feature will not be hard to achieve. I've hack some code to retrieve the URL source of uploaded image and it works well.

The goal is to get information, like [0]WebGL inspector, from WebGL front. Then figure out if it's possible to reupload texture dynamically without refresh the page or other useful features.

Here's my modification that creating TextureActor for devtools' need. Basically, I follow the structure which ProgramActor does so it's not too mess.
I only wrapped part of WebGL function calls on this stage and need some feedbacks before I wrap them all. Thanks.

I suggest renaming these as srcURL and srcBuffer, if you really want to maintain type consistency. This way it's clear that sometimes one is used instead of the other for a texture source.

Additionally, texImage2D can receive an ImageData object which isn't an Image nor a WebGLBuffer. Which one of these properties should we use in that case? What's the `buffer` property's expected internal format here? Packed rgba8? Should explain all of this in the comment.

The `cache` param doesn't have documentation here.

I only see `texID` used in this actor? Why the need for `linkedCache` and `linkedProxy`?

Should handle the case when texID is null. It might happen that texImage2D is called even when no texture is actually bound.

s/currentBindedTexture/currentBoundTexture/

Furthermore, we should absolutely *not* work directly with content xray wrapped objects here, let alone setting properties on them, like you do (e.g. texId.foo = bar). Follow the pattern used by programs. Have an `addProgram` method that creates a wrapped object around the content object, on which additional properties may be set.

Create TextureActor that store basic texture info

Except improving and fixing previous problems, I also
- store complete properties of WebGLTexture to texture actor
- store partial properties of WebGLTexture's mipmap to texture actor
- emit event while `deleteTexture` is required

Now the method I use for retrieving pixel data of texture is by creating a framebuffer, draw texture on it then read its pixels out. So I don't need to track every texSubImage request for texture modification. But this method could not retrieve pixel data of mipmaps due to the limitation of WebGL [0].

Might be ClampedUint8Array, but I don't think we care so much.

Here's a thought: would it make sense to send this over the protocol as a Uint32Array, for compactness? This way we avoid serializing 4 times more numbers.

Use `removeFromArray` defined in this file instead, to avoid creating a new array.

If this function is being called with bad arguments, in other words – if the context throws an error because of the current state or the arguments themselves, we shouldn't register a new texture here. Need to handle and test this scenario as well.

Lots of code duplication between `texImage2D`, `compressedTexImage2D` and `copyTexImage2D`. Maybe we can consolidate these three methods?

BufferActor and related tests

I've though about the "removed" event and decide don't use it. The usage is limited since WebGL delete unused object automatically and that can't be caught in any way. The solution I use is making a function that could check if the WebGLBuffer still exists by requesting gl.getBufferParameter(target, gl.BUFFER_SIZE). If the buffer no longer exists, it return null, otherwise its size in byte.

I think the ability to know if the resource still alive is necessary, but we can still discus the best way to achieve this.

BTW, I'll rename these test cases after it's ready to be reviewed.

I also have some design problem.

Take textureActor for instance, currently I decide to only record the first source for creating texture, the other changes wouldn't be recorded and here comes some problems.

I found that the implementation of WebGL-inspector is to capture the "calls history with arguments" but the changes of data. It's clever but I'm not sure if this fit our need.

Any idea or comment?

In other word, will "save all WebGL calls about resources used in one frame" needed to reach our goal?

For instance, a WebGL buffer could be bound and applied bufferSubData in certain frame. My current idea is to save all these calls with arguments which relate to this buffer in this frame, so we could provide a snapshot about what happened to this buffer in certain frame.

Hi, victor.

I've struggled with finding a way to pass properties of an object from actor to front for a while. Now I have a rough idea about what I could do but since I'm not deeply familiar with codebase of devtools, I think I need some technical advice in case I break something by accident.

The problem I want to solve here is similar to Bug 978957: I should use ObejctActor to pass arguments of function calls, so the client could get more useful information. Since we should provide some functions and variables to use ObjectActor, I have two ideas for this:

1. Maintain another actor pool and other requirements inside WebGLActor, or
2. Use those which owned by WebConsolePanel

I think solution 1 would work, except we might duplicate some actors.
Solution 2 would solve the duplication, but I'm not sure if it's allowed to do interaction between tabs like that, and have no idea if this solution would work. 

What do you think?

PS. I found that we use regular array rather than ActorPool to store actors inside WebGLActor, is this meant to be?
