public method SetCounterValue(counterValue: uint): void;
public void SetCounterValue(uint counterValue);


counterValueValue of the append/consume counter.


Sets counter value of append/consume buffer.

Append/consume and counter buffers (see ComputeBufferType.Append, ComputeBufferType.Counter) keep track of the number of elements in them with a special counter variable. SetCounterValue explicitly sets the counter value.

This can be used to reset the counter or to set it to a specific value.

Note: SetCounterValue can not be called while the buffer is bound via Graphics.SetRandomWriteTarget.
