Is it possible to *retrieve* integer data from shader code ?

Recommended Posts

Hi all ... I have a simple question to ask .. Its one of the first things you learn about shaders when using them with XNA that you can pass on variables from C# to the shader code via the Effect.Parameters function. For example:

Effect.Parameters["shaderVariable"].SetValue(someValue);

In the above line, you're sending the value stored in 'someValue' to the shader variable 'shaderVariable' ..

Can we do the reverse as well ? Like for example, you want to debug the inner workings of a shader code and want to send back some numerical data to your C# application, then is there any similar but opposite relation functional available as well ?
