C Specification

An application can inspect whether the system is capable of hand tracking input by extending the XrSystemProperties with XrSystemHandTrackingPropertiesEXT structure when calling xrGetSystemProperties.

typedef struct XrSystemHandTrackingPropertiesEXT {
    XrStructureType    type;
    void*              next;
    XrBool32           supportsHandTracking;
} XrSystemHandTrackingPropertiesEXT;


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.

  • supportsHandTracking is an XrBool32, indicating if current system is capable of hand tracking input.


Valid Usage (Implicit)

If a runtime returns XR_FALSE for supportsHandTracking, the runtime must return XR_ERROR_FEATURE_UNSUPPORTED from xrCreateHandTrackerEXT.
