C Specification

To destroy a buffer, call:

void vkDestroyBuffer(
    VkDevice                                    device,
    VkBuffer                                    buffer,
    const VkAllocationCallbacks*                pAllocator);

Parameters

  • device is the logical device that destroys the buffer.

  • buffer is the buffer to destroy.

  • pAllocator controls host memory allocation as described in the Memory Allocation chapter.

Description

Valid Usage
  • All submitted commands that refer to buffer, either directly or via a VkBufferView, must have completed execution

  • If VkAllocationCallbacks were provided when buffer was created, a compatible set of callbacks must be provided here

  • If no VkAllocationCallbacks were provided when buffer was created, pAllocator must be NULL

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • device must be a valid VkDevice handle

  • If buffer is not VK_NULL_HANDLE, buffer must be a valid VkBuffer handle

  • If pAllocator is not NULL, pAllocator must be a valid pointer to a valid VkAllocationCallbacks structure

  • If buffer is a valid handle, it must have been created, allocated, or retrieved from device

Host Synchronization
  • Host access to buffer must be externally synchronized
