C Specification

To create a framebuffer, call:

VkResult vkCreateFramebuffer(
    VkDevice                                    device,
    const VkFramebufferCreateInfo*              pCreateInfo,
    const VkAllocationCallbacks*                pAllocator,
    VkFramebuffer*                              pFramebuffer);


  • device is the logical device that creates the framebuffer.

  • pCreateInfo points to a VkFramebufferCreateInfo structure which describes additional information about framebuffer creation.

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

  • pFramebuffer points to a VkFramebuffer handle in which the resulting framebuffer object is returned.


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

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

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

  • pFramebuffer must be a valid pointer to a VkFramebuffer handle

Return Codes
On success, this command returns

On failure, this command returns
