C Specification

The VkPhysicalDeviceImageFormatInfo2 structure is defined as:

typedef struct VkPhysicalDeviceImageFormatInfo2 {
    VkStructureType       sType;
    const void*           pNext;
    VkFormat              format;
    VkImageType           type;
    VkImageTiling         tiling;
    VkImageUsageFlags     usage;
    VkImageCreateFlags    flags;
} VkPhysicalDeviceImageFormatInfo2;

or the equivalent

typedef VkPhysicalDeviceImageFormatInfo2 VkPhysicalDeviceImageFormatInfo2KHR;


  • sType is the type of this structure.

  • pNext is NULL or a pointer to an extension-specific structure. The pNext chain of VkPhysicalDeviceImageFormatInfo2 is used to provide additional image parameters to vkGetPhysicalDeviceImageFormatProperties2.

  • format is a VkFormat value indicating the image format, corresponding to VkImageCreateInfo::format.

  • type is a VkImageType value indicating the image type, corresponding to VkImageCreateInfo::imageType.

  • tiling is a VkImageTiling value indicating the image tiling, corresponding to VkImageCreateInfo::tiling.

  • usage is a bitmask of VkImageUsageFlagBits indicating the intended usage of the image, corresponding to VkImageCreateInfo::usage.

  • flags is a bitmask of VkImageCreateFlagBits indicating additional parameters of the image, corresponding to VkImageCreateInfo::flags.


The members of VkPhysicalDeviceImageFormatInfo2 correspond to the arguments to vkGetPhysicalDeviceImageFormatProperties, with sType and pNext added for extensibility.
