C Specification

The VkPipelineViewportExclusiveScissorStateCreateInfoNV structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_NV_scissor_exclusive
typedef struct VkPipelineViewportExclusiveScissorStateCreateInfoNV {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    const void*        pNext;
    uint32_t           exclusiveScissorCount;
    const VkRect2D*    pExclusiveScissors;
} VkPipelineViewportExclusiveScissorStateCreateInfoNV;


  • sType is the type of this structure.

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

  • exclusiveScissorCount is the number of exclusive scissor rectangles.

  • pExclusiveScissors is a pointer to an array of VkRect2D structures defining exclusive scissor rectangles.


If the VK_DYNAMIC_STATE_EXCLUSIVE_SCISSOR_NV dynamic state is enabled for a pipeline, the pExclusiveScissors member is ignored.

When this structure is included in the pNext chain of VkGraphicsPipelineCreateInfo, it defines parameters of the exclusive scissor test. If this structure is not included in the pNext chain, it is equivalent to specifying this structure with a exclusiveScissorCount of 0.

Valid Usage
  • If the multiple viewports feature is not enabled, exclusiveScissorCount must be 0 or 1

  • exclusiveScissorCount must be less than or equal to VkPhysicalDeviceLimits::maxViewports

  • exclusiveScissorCount must be 0 or identical to the viewportCount member of VkPipelineViewportStateCreateInfo

Valid Usage (Implicit)
