C Specification

The XrCompositionLayerBaseHeader structure is defined as:

typedef struct XrCompositionLayerBaseHeader {
    XrStructureType            type;
    const void*                next;
    XrCompositionLayerFlags    layerFlags;
    XrSpace                    space;
} XrCompositionLayerBaseHeader;


Member Descriptions
  • type is the XrStructureType of this structure. This base structure itself has no associated XrStructureType value.

  • next is NULL or a pointer to the next structure in a structure chain. No such structures are defined in core OpenXR.

  • layerFlags is a bitmask of XrCompositionLayerFlagBits describing flags to apply to the layer.

  • space is the XrSpace in which the layer will be kept stable over time.


All composition layer structures begin with the elements described in the XrCompositionLayerBaseHeader. The XrCompositionLayerBaseHeader structure is not intended to be directly used, but forms a basis for defining current and future structures containing composition layer information. The XrFrameEndInfo structure contains an array of pointers to these polymorphic header structures. All composition layer type pointers must be type-castable as an XrCompositionLayerBaseHeader pointer.
