The WebGLRenderingContext.blendColor() method of the WebGL API is used to set the source and destination blending factors.

Syntax

void gl.blendColor(red, green, blue, alpha);

Parameters

red
A GLclampf for the red component in the range of 0 to 1.
green
A GLclampf for the green component in the range of 0 to 1.
blue
A GLclampf for the blue component in the range of 0 to 1.
alpha

gl.getParameter(gl.BLEND_COLOR);
// Float32Array[0, 0.5, 1, 1]
