C Specification

To create an image view, call:

VkResult vkCreateImageView(
    VkDevice                                    device,
    const VkImageViewCreateInfo*                pCreateInfo,
    const VkAllocationCallbacks*                pAllocator,
    VkImageView*                                pView);

Parameters

  • device is the logical device that creates the image view.

  • pCreateInfo is a pointer to an instance of the VkImageViewCreateInfo structure containing parameters to be used to create the image view.

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

  • pView points to a VkImageView handle in which the resulting image view object is returned.

Description

Some of the image creation parameters are inherited by the view. The remaining parameters are contained in the pCreateInfo.

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

  • pCreateInfo must be a pointer to a valid VkImageViewCreateInfo structure

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

  • pView must be a pointer to a VkImageView 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
