C Specification

To create descriptor set layout objects, call:

VkResult vkCreateDescriptorSetLayout(
    VkDevice                                    device,
    const VkDescriptorSetLayoutCreateInfo*      pCreateInfo,
    const VkAllocationCallbacks*                pAllocator,
    VkDescriptorSetLayout*                      pSetLayout);


  • device is the logical device that creates the descriptor set layout.

  • pCreateInfo is a pointer to an instance of the VkDescriptorSetLayoutCreateInfo structure specifying the state of the descriptor set layout object.

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

  • pSetLayout points to a VkDescriptorSetLayout handle in which the resulting descriptor set layout object is returned.


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

  • pCreateInfo must be a valid pointer to a valid VkDescriptorSetLayoutCreateInfo structure

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

  • pSetLayout must be a valid pointer to a VkDescriptorSetLayout handle

On failure, this command returns
