C Specification

The xrCreateActionSpace function is defined as:

XrResult xrCreateActionSpace(
    XrSession                                   session,
    const XrActionSpaceCreateInfo*              createInfo,
    XrSpace*                                    space);

Parameters

Parameter Descriptions
  • session is the XrSession to create the action space in.

  • createInfo is the XrActionSpaceCreateInfo used to specify the space.

  • space is the returned space handle.

Description

Creates an XrSpace handle based on a chosen pose action. Application can provide an XrPosef to define the position and orientation of the new space’s origin within the natural reference frame of the action space.

Multiple XrSpace handles may exist simultaneously, up to some limit imposed by the runtime. The XrSpace handle must be eventually freed via the xrDestroySpace function or by destroying the parent XrAction handle.

The runtime must return XR_ERROR_ACTION_TYPE_MISMATCH if the action provided in action is not of type XR_ACTION_TYPE_POSE_INPUT.
