C Specification

The application should submit layers each frame for all active secondary view configurations using the xrEndFrame function, by chaining the XrSecondaryViewConfigurationFrameEndInfoMSFT structure to the next pointer of XrFrameEndInfo structure.

The XrSecondaryViewConfigurationFrameEndInfoMSFT structure is defined as as:

typedef struct XrSecondaryViewConfigurationFrameEndInfoMSFT {
    XrStructureType                                     type;
    const void*                                         next;
    uint32_t                                            viewConfigurationCount;
    const XrSecondaryViewConfigurationLayerInfoMSFT*    viewConfigurationLayersInfo;
} XrSecondaryViewConfigurationFrameEndInfoMSFT;


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.

  • viewConfigurationCount is the number of elements in viewConfigurationLayersInfo.

  • viewConfigurationLayersInfo is an array of XrSecondaryViewConfigurationLayerInfoMSFT, containing composition layers to be submitted for the specified active view configuration.


The view configuration type in each XrSecondaryViewConfigurationLayerInfoMSFT must be one of the view configurations enabled when calling xrBeginSession in XrSecondaryViewConfigurationSessionBeginInfoMSFT, or else the runtime must return error XR_ERROR_SECONDARY_VIEW_CONFIGURATION_TYPE_NOT_ENABLED_MSFT.

The view configuration type in each XrSecondaryViewConfigurationLayerInfoMSFT must not be the primary view configuration in this session, or else the runtime must return error XR_ERROR_LAYER_INVALID. The primary view configuration layers continue to be submitted through XrFrameEndInfo directly.

If the view configuration is not active, as indicated in XrSecondaryViewConfigurationFrameStateMSFT, the composition layers submitted to this view configuration may be ignored by the runtime. Applications should avoid rendering into secondary views when the view configuration is inactive.
