C Specification

The XrInstanceCreateInfoAndroidKHR structure is defined as:

typedef struct XrInstanceCreateInfoAndroidKHR {
    XrStructureType    type;
    const void*        next;
    void*              applicationVM;
    void*              applicationActivity;
} XrInstanceCreateInfoAndroidKHR;


Member Descriptions
  • type is the XrStructureType of this structure.

  • next is NULL or a pointer to the next structure in a structure chain. No such structures are defined in core OpenXR or this extension.

  • applicationVM is a pointer to the JNI’s opaque JavaVM structure, cast to a void pointer.

  • applicationActivity is a JNI reference to an android.app.Activity that will drive the session lifecycle of this instance, cast to a void pointer.


XrInstanceCreateInfoAndroidKHR contains additional Android specific information needed when calling xrCreateInstance. The applicationVM field should be populated with the JavaVM structure received by the JNI_OnLoad function, while the applicationActivity field will typically contain a reference to a Java activity object received through an application-specific native method. The XrInstanceCreateInfoAndroidKHR structure must be provided in the next chain of the XrInstanceCreateInfo structure when calling xrCreateInstance.
