C Specification

When creating a Vulkan instance for which you wish to enable or disable specific validation features, add a VkValidationFeaturesEXT structure to the pNext chain of the VkInstanceCreateInfo structure, specifying the features to be enabled or disabled.

typedef struct VkValidationFeaturesEXT {
    VkStructureType                         sType;
    const void*                             pNext;
    uint32_t                                enabledValidationFeatureCount;
    const VkValidationFeatureEnableEXT*     pEnabledValidationFeatures;
    uint32_t                                disabledValidationFeatureCount;
    const VkValidationFeatureDisableEXT*    pDisabledValidationFeatures;
} VkValidationFeaturesEXT;


  • sType is the type of this structure.

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

  • enabledValidationFeatureCount is the number of features to enable.

  • pEnabledValidationFeatures is a pointer to an array of VkValidationFeatureEnableEXT values specifying the validation features to be enabled.

  • disabledValidationFeatureCount is the number of features to disable.

  • pDisabledValidationFeatures is a pointer to an array of VkValidationFeatureDisableEXT values specifying the validation features to be disabled.


Valid Usage (Implicit)

  • If enabledValidationFeatureCount is not 0, pEnabledValidationFeatures must be a valid pointer to an array of enabledValidationFeatureCount valid VkValidationFeatureEnableEXT values

  • If disabledValidationFeatureCount is not 0, pDisabledValidationFeatures must be a valid pointer to an array of disabledValidationFeatureCount valid VkValidationFeatureDisableEXT values
