bool StelTexture::bind ( int  slot = 0)

If the texture is lazyly loaded, this starts the loading and return false immediately.

true if the binding successfully occured, false if the texture is not yet loaded.
const QString& StelTexture::getErrorMessage ( ) const
the human friendly error message or empty string if no errors occured
const QString& StelTexture::getFullPath ( ) const

If the texture was downloaded from a remote location, this function return the full URL.

bool StelTexture::hasAlphaChannel ( ) const
void StelTexture::loadingProcessFinished ( bool  error)

when downloaded, imageLoading and glLoading is over or when an error occured and the texture will never be available In case of error, you can query what the problem was by calling getErrorMessage()

erroris equal to true if an error occured while loading the texture
void StelTexture::release ( ) const

it simply calls glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0)

void StelTexture::waitForLoaded ( )

bind will return true after this). Do not use this for potentially network loaded textures.
