C Specification

VkBindBufferMemoryInfo contains members corresponding to the parameters of vkBindBufferMemory.

The VkBindBufferMemoryInfo structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_1
typedef struct VkBindBufferMemoryInfo {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    const void*        pNext;
    VkBuffer           buffer;
    VkDeviceMemory     memory;
    VkDeviceSize       memoryOffset;
} VkBindBufferMemoryInfo;

or the equivalent

// Provided by VK_KHR_bind_memory2
typedef VkBindBufferMemoryInfo VkBindBufferMemoryInfoKHR;


  • sType is the type of this structure.

  • pNext is NULL or a pointer to a structure extending this structure.

  • buffer is the buffer to be attached to memory.

  • memory is a VkDeviceMemory object describing the device memory to attach.

  • memoryOffset is the start offset of the region of memory which is to be bound to the buffer. The number of bytes returned in the VkMemoryRequirements::size member in memory, starting from memoryOffset bytes, will be bound to the specified buffer.


Valid Usage
Valid Usage (Implicit)

  • pNext must be NULL or a pointer to a valid instance of VkBindBufferMemoryDeviceGroupInfo

  • The sType value of each struct in the pNext chain must be unique

  • buffer must be a valid VkBuffer handle

  • memory must be a valid VkDeviceMemory handle

  • Both of buffer, and memory must have been created, allocated, or retrieved from the same VkDevice
