C Specification

Fences may support import and export of their payload to external handles. To query the external handle types supported by fences, call:

void vkGetPhysicalDeviceExternalFenceProperties(
    VkPhysicalDevice                            physicalDevice,
    const VkPhysicalDeviceExternalFenceInfo*    pExternalFenceInfo,
    VkExternalFenceProperties*                  pExternalFenceProperties);

or the equivalent command

void vkGetPhysicalDeviceExternalFencePropertiesKHR(
    VkPhysicalDevice                            physicalDevice,
    const VkPhysicalDeviceExternalFenceInfo*    pExternalFenceInfo,
    VkExternalFenceProperties*                  pExternalFenceProperties);

Parameters

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

  • pExternalFenceInfo must be a valid pointer to a valid VkPhysicalDeviceExternalFenceInfo structure

  • pExternalFenceProperties must be a valid pointer to a VkExternalFenceProperties structure
