C Specification

Parameters

Parameter Descriptions

Description

When the application receives XrEventDataSessionStateChanged event with the XR_SESSION_STATE_STOPPING state, the application should stop its frame loop and then call xrEndSession to end the running session. This function signals to the runtime that the application will no longer call xrWaitFrame, xrBeginFrame or xrEndFrame from any thread allowing the runtime to safely transition the session to XR_SESSION_STATE_IDLE. The application must also avoid reading input state or sending haptic output after calling xrEndSession.

If the session is not running when the application calls xrEndSession, the runtime must return error XR_ERROR_SESSION_NOT_RUNNING. If the session is still running when the application calls xrEndSession, but the session is not yet in the XR_SESSION_STATE_STOPPING state, the runtime must return error XR_ERROR_SESSION_NOT_STOPPING.

If the application wishes to exit a running session, the application can call xrRequestExitSession so that the session transitions from XR_SESSION_STATE_IDLE to XR_SESSION_STATE_EXITING.
