C Specification

To release exclusive full-screen access from a swapchain, call:

VkResult vkReleaseFullScreenExclusiveModeEXT(
    VkDevice                                    device,
    VkSwapchainKHR                              swapchain);

Parameters

  • device is the device associated with swapchain.

  • swapchain is the swapchain to release exclusive full-screen access from.

Description

Note

Applications will not be able to present to swapchain after this call until exclusive full-screen access is reacquired. This is usually useful to handle when an application is minimised or otherwise intends to stop presenting for a time.

Valid Usage
  • swapchain must not be in the retired state

  • swapchain must be a swapchain created with an instance of VkSurfaceFullScreenExclusiveInfoEXT, with fullScreenExclusive set to VK_FULL_SCREEN_EXCLUSIVE_APPLICATION_CONTROLLED_EXT
