I've gone through the lessons on http://learningwebgl.com/lessons/, but cannot get the lesson 16 demo to display on my PlayBook (OS 18.104.22.1680). I am left with an empty white canvas. The demo works fine in Chrome. According to the Blackberry WebGL Documentation I think the WebGL functions used in the demo are all supported. According to web inspector, there are no errors on the page. Does anyone know why the canvas isn't displaying? My guess is that the problem revolves around a frame buffer issue as I haven't been able to get any frame buffer code to render on the PlayBook. Has anyone used frame buffers successfully on a PlayBook?

Are you running the lessons in the browser or packaged them within an app? I tried here with PlayBook running OS 22.214.171.1248 and it seems working well in the browser like shown in the screenshot below. The first was the notification that the page uses WebGL so I needed to grant permission and then it was working really good on the device!

Thanks so much LBP!! I downgraded my PlayBook to 126.96.36.1998 and the page, as well as my app, rendered correctly! I filed a bug report in JIRA as I think this issue is limited to 2.1.*. Please kindly vote for the issue so that it is fixed before 2.1 is public.

Hi. Good to know you filed a bug report but it seems the JIRA isn't quite well configured since other devs doesn't have permission to view it because of the group permissions. I got this message:
You cannot view this issue because you are not the issue reporter or assignee, a member of the project group, or a member of the issue group and this issue is closed or in triage.
I filed a bug for BB10 and it is the same, only I'm able to view it and the people at RIM. I pointed to this in a discussion with a Community Manager since it isn't quite well for others to not be able to view and comment on those issues and bugs.

Hi guys, I've confirmed this issue on my device. I'll log into the JIRA cases today and escalate them to dev. LBP, could you please link your issue here? I should still be able to see it when logging in and will flip them both to visible by the community.
EDIT: Once I sort out these login issues.

the reported issue BBTEN-121 was closed to reopen it as BBTEN-124 and it seems others can not comment to it. When I got the email about reopening I wasn't able to access the BBTEN-124 because of permission.

I've escalated the WebGL issue and also made it public so that it should be visible. Can you please confirm?
WebGL Frame Buffer doesn't workin 188.8.131.520:
BBTEN-124 appears to be open to the public. It's available at the following URL, but I'll try to configure some settings to check whether something is missing.
On off button is not operating as it should be since updated to BlackBerry10 Dev Alpha OS 10.0.06
Just to confirm, BBTEN-124 can not be currently accessed, correct?

Right now it seems RIM has worked on the JIRA permissions since I could access both of them. Days ago I couldn't. But the login is buggy I think when I want to login to JIRA directly through the issue URLs it isn't possible, I need to use the dashboard and then it asks me if I want to use BB-ID or BB-JAM login and it is working well.

Thanks LBP, I did switch some permissions around so it may have been from that. I'll pass the login issues to our web team.
