C Specification

To query the external handle types supported by buffers, call:

void vkGetPhysicalDeviceExternalBufferProperties(
    VkPhysicalDevice                            physicalDevice,
    const VkPhysicalDeviceExternalBufferInfo*   pExternalBufferInfo,
    VkExternalBufferProperties*                 pExternalBufferProperties);

or the equivalent command

void vkGetPhysicalDeviceExternalBufferPropertiesKHR(
    VkPhysicalDevice                            physicalDevice,
    const VkPhysicalDeviceExternalBufferInfo*   pExternalBufferInfo,
    VkExternalBufferProperties*                 pExternalBufferProperties);

Parameters

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • physicalDevice must be a valid VkPhysicalDevice handle

  • pExternalBufferInfo must be a valid pointer to a valid VkPhysicalDeviceExternalBufferInfo structure
