Description

Loads the pixel data of the current Py5Graphics drawing surface into the Py5Graphics.pixels[] array. This function must always be called before reading from or writing to Py5Graphics.pixels[]. Subsequent changes to the Py5Graphics drawing surface will not be reflected in Py5Graphics.pixels[] until load_pixels() is called again.

This method is the same as load_pixels() but linked to a Py5Graphics object.

Underlying Java method: PGraphics.loadPixels

Syntax

load_pixels() -> None
