C Specification

To create a descriptor pool object, call:

VkResult vkCreateDescriptorPool(
    VkDevice                                    device,
    const VkDescriptorPoolCreateInfo*           pCreateInfo,
    const VkAllocationCallbacks*                pAllocator,
    VkDescriptorPool*                           pDescriptorPool);

Parameters

  • device is the logical device that creates the descriptor pool.

  • pCreateInfo is a pointer to an instance of the VkDescriptorPoolCreateInfo structure specifying the state of the descriptor pool object.

  • pAllocator controls host memory allocation as described in the Memory Allocation chapter.

  • pDescriptorPool points to a VkDescriptorPool handle in which the resulting descriptor pool object is returned.

Description

pAllocator controls host memory allocation as described in the Memory Allocation chapter.

The created descriptor pool is returned in pDescriptorPool.

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • device must be a valid VkDevice handle

  • pCreateInfo must be a pointer to a valid VkDescriptorPoolCreateInfo structure

  • If pAllocator is not NULL, pAllocator must be a pointer to a valid VkAllocationCallbacks structure

  • pDescriptorPool must be a pointer to a VkDescriptorPool handle

Return Codes
On success, this command returns
  • VK_SUCCESS

On failure, this command returns
  • VK_ERROR_OUT_OF_HOST_MEMORY

  • VK_ERROR_OUT_OF_DEVICE_MEMORY
