C Specification

A collection of flags is represented by a bitmask using the type VkFlags:

typedef uint32_t VkFlags;


Bitmasks are passed to many commands and structures to compactly represent options, but VkFlags is not used directly in the API. Instead, a Vk*Flags type which is an alias of VkFlags, and whose name matches the corresponding Vk*FlagBits that are valid for that type, is used. These aliases are described in the Flag Types appendix of the Specification.
