C Specification

Information about the descriptor set layout is passed in an instance of the VkDescriptorSetLayoutCreateInfo structure:

typedef struct VkDescriptorSetLayoutCreateInfo {
    VkStructureType                        sType;
    const void*                            pNext;
    VkDescriptorSetLayoutCreateFlags       flags;
    uint32_t                               bindingCount;
    const VkDescriptorSetLayoutBinding*    pBindings;
} VkDescriptorSetLayoutCreateInfo;


  • sType is the type of this structure.

  • pNext is NULL or a pointer to an extension-specific structure.

  • flags provides options for descriptor set layout creation, and is of type VkDescriptorSetLayoutCreateFlags. Bits which can be set include:

    typedef enum VkDescriptorSetLayoutCreateFlagBits {
    } VkDescriptorSetLayoutCreateFlagBits;

    == Description

  • bindingCount is the number of elements in pBindings.

  • pBindings is a pointer to an array of VkDescriptorSetLayoutBinding structures.

Valid Usage
Valid Usage (Implicit)

  • pNext must be NULL

  • flags must be a valid combination of VkDescriptorSetLayoutCreateFlagBits values

  • If bindingCount is not 0, pBindings must be a pointer to an array of bindingCount valid VkDescriptorSetLayoutBinding structures
