C Specification

The VkPipelineDepthStencilStateCreateInfo structure is defined as:

typedef struct VkPipelineDepthStencilStateCreateInfo {
    VkStructureType                           sType;
    const void*                               pNext;
    VkPipelineDepthStencilStateCreateFlags    flags;
    VkBool32                                  depthTestEnable;
    VkBool32                                  depthWriteEnable;
    VkCompareOp                               depthCompareOp;
    VkBool32                                  depthBoundsTestEnable;
    VkBool32                                  stencilTestEnable;
    VkStencilOpState                          front;
    VkStencilOpState                          back;
    float                                     minDepthBounds;
    float                                     maxDepthBounds;
} VkPipelineDepthStencilStateCreateInfo;


  • sType is the type of this structure.

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

  • flags is reserved for future use.

  • depthTestEnable controls whether depth testing is enabled.

  • depthWriteEnable controls whether depth writes are enabled when depthTestEnable is VK_TRUE. Depth writes are always disabled when depthTestEnable is VK_FALSE.

  • depthCompareOp is the comparison operator used in the depth test.

  • depthBoundsTestEnable controls whether depth bounds testing is enabled.

  • stencilTestEnable controls whether stencil testing is enabled.

  • front and back control the parameters of the stencil test.

  • minDepthBounds and maxDepthBounds define the range of values used in the depth bounds test.


Valid Usage
Valid Usage (Implicit)

  • pNext must be NULL

  • flags must be 0

  • depthCompareOp must be a valid VkCompareOp value

  • front must be a valid VkStencilOpState structure

  • back must be a valid VkStencilOpState structure
