C Specification

To create a buffer view, call:

VkResult vkCreateBufferView(
    VkDevice                                    device,
    const VkBufferViewCreateInfo*               pCreateInfo,
    const VkAllocationCallbacks*                pAllocator,
    VkBufferView*                               pView);


  • device is the logical device that creates the buffer view.

  • pCreateInfo is a pointer to an instance of the VkBufferViewCreateInfo structure containing parameters to be used to create the buffer.

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

  • pView points to a VkBufferView handle in which the resulting buffer view object is returned.


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

  • pCreateInfo must be a valid pointer to a valid VkBufferViewCreateInfo structure

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

  • pView must be a valid pointer to a VkBufferView handle

Return Codes

On failure, this command returns
