C Specification

To dynamically set the depth bounds range values call:

void vkCmdSetDepthBounds(
    VkCommandBuffer                             commandBuffer,
    float                                       minDepthBounds,
    float                                       maxDepthBounds);


  • commandBuffer is the command buffer into which the command will be recorded.

  • minDepthBounds is the minimum depth bound.

  • maxDepthBounds is the maximum depth bound.


This command sets the state for a given draw when the graphics pipeline is created with VK_DYNAMIC_STATE_DEPTH_BOUNDS set in VkPipelineDynamicStateCreateInfo::pDynamicStates.

Valid Usage
Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • commandBuffer must be a valid VkCommandBuffer handle

  • commandBuffer must be in the recording state

  • The VkCommandPool that commandBuffer was allocated from must support graphics operations

Host Synchronization
  • Host access to commandBuffer must be externally synchronized

  • Host access to the VkCommandPool that commandBuffer was allocated from must be externally synchronized
