public void GetData(Array data);

Parameters

dataAn array to receive the data.

Description

The retrieved data will follow the data layout rules of the graphics API in use. See Compute Shaders for cross-platform compatibility information.

Note: Only blittable data types can be copied from the buffer to the array, the array's type must be a blittable type. If you attempt to use non-blittable types, an exception will be raised.
