C Specification

VkBindBufferMemoryInfo contains members corresponding to the parameters of vkBindBufferMemory.

The VkBindBufferMemoryInfo structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_1
typedef struct VkBindBufferMemoryInfo {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    const void*        pNext;
    VkBuffer           buffer;
    VkDeviceMemory     memory;
    VkDeviceSize       memoryOffset;
} VkBindBufferMemoryInfo;

or the equivalent

// Provided by VK_KHR_bind_memory2
typedef VkBindBufferMemoryInfo VkBindBufferMemoryInfoKHR;

Members

  • sType is the type of this structure.

  • pNext is NULL or a pointer to a structure extending this structure.

  • buffer is the buffer to be attached to memory.

  • memory is a VkDeviceMemory object describing the device memory to attach.

  • memoryOffset is the start offset of the region of memory which is to be bound to the buffer. The number of bytes returned in the VkMemoryRequirements::size member in memory, starting from memoryOffset bytes, will be bound to the specified buffer.

Description

Valid Usage
  • VUID-VkBindBufferMemoryInfo-buffer-01029
    buffer must not already be backed by a memory object

  • VUID-VkBindBufferMemoryInfo-buffer-01030
    buffer must not have been created with any sparse memory binding flags

  • VUID-VkBindBufferMemoryInfo-memoryOffset-01031
    memoryOffset must be less than the size of memory

  • VUID-VkBindBufferMemoryInfo-memory-01035
    memory must have been allocated using one of the memory types allowed in the memoryTypeBits member of the VkMemoryRequirements structure returned from a call to vkGetBufferMemoryRequirements with buffer

  • VUID-VkBindBufferMemoryInfo-memoryOffset-01036
    memoryOffset must be an integer multiple of the alignment member of the VkMemoryRequirements structure returned from a call to vkGetBufferMemoryRequirements with buffer

  • VUID-VkBindBufferMemoryInfo-size-01037
    The size member of the VkMemoryRequirements structure returned from a call to vkGetBufferMemoryRequirements with buffer must be less than or equal to the size of memory minus memoryOffset

  • VUID-VkBindBufferMemoryInfo-buffer-01444
    If buffer requires a dedicated allocation(as reported by vkGetBufferMemoryRequirements2 in VkMemoryDedicatedRequirements::requiresDedicatedAllocation for buffer), memory must have been created with VkMemoryDedicatedAllocateInfo::buffer equal to buffer

  • VUID-VkBindBufferMemoryInfo-memory-01508
    If the VkMemoryAllocateInfo provided when memory was allocated included a VkMemoryDedicatedAllocateInfo structure in its pNext chain, and VkMemoryDedicatedAllocateInfo::buffer was not VK_NULL_HANDLE, then buffer must equal VkMemoryDedicatedAllocateInfo::buffer, and memoryOffset must be zero

  • VUID-VkBindBufferMemoryInfo-None-01898
    If buffer was created with the VK_BUFFER_CREATE_PROTECTED_BIT bit set, the buffer must be bound to a memory object allocated with a memory type that reports VK_MEMORY_PROPERTY_PROTECTED_BIT

  • VUID-VkBindBufferMemoryInfo-None-01899
    If buffer was created with the VK_BUFFER_CREATE_PROTECTED_BIT bit not set, the buffer must not be bound to a memory object created with a memory type that reports VK_MEMORY_PROPERTY_PROTECTED_BIT

  • VUID-VkBindBufferMemoryInfo-buffer-01038
    If buffer was created with VkDedicatedAllocationBufferCreateInfoNV::dedicatedAllocation equal to VK_TRUE, memory must have been created with VkDedicatedAllocationMemoryAllocateInfoNV::buffer equal to a buffer handle created with identical creation parameters to buffer and memoryOffset must be zero

  • VUID-VkBindBufferMemoryInfo-memory-02726
    If the value of VkExportMemoryAllocateInfo::handleTypes used to allocate memory is not 0, it must include at least one of the handles set in VkExternalMemoryBufferCreateInfo::handleTypes when buffer was created

  • VUID-VkBindBufferMemoryInfo-memory-02985
    If memory was created by a memory import operation, that is not VkImportAndroidHardwareBufferInfoANDROID with a non-NULL buffer value, the external handle type of the imported memory must also have been set in VkExternalMemoryBufferCreateInfo::handleTypes when buffer was created

  • VUID-VkBindBufferMemoryInfo-memory-02986
    If memory was created with the VkImportAndroidHardwareBufferInfoANDROID memory import operation with a non-NULL buffer value, VK_EXTERNAL_MEMORY_HANDLE_TYPE_ANDROID_HARDWARE_BUFFER_BIT_ANDROID must also have been set in VkExternalMemoryBufferCreateInfo::handleTypes when buffer was created

  • VUID-VkBindBufferMemoryInfo-bufferDeviceAddress-03339
    If the VkPhysicalDeviceBufferDeviceAddressFeatures::bufferDeviceAddress feature is enabled and buffer was created with the VK_BUFFER_USAGE_SHADER_DEVICE_ADDRESS_BIT bit set, memory must have been allocated with the VK_MEMORY_ALLOCATE_DEVICE_ADDRESS_BIT bit set

  • VUID-VkBindBufferMemoryInfo-pNext-01605
    If the pNext chain includes a VkBindBufferMemoryDeviceGroupInfo structure, all instances of memory specified by VkBindBufferMemoryDeviceGroupInfo::pDeviceIndices must have been allocated

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-VkBindBufferMemoryInfo-sType-sType
    sType must be VK_STRUCTURE_TYPE_BIND_BUFFER_MEMORY_INFO

  • VUID-VkBindBufferMemoryInfo-pNext-pNext
    pNext must be NULL or a pointer to a valid instance of VkBindBufferMemoryDeviceGroupInfo

  • VUID-VkBindBufferMemoryInfo-sType-unique
    The sType value of each struct in the pNext chain must be unique

  • VUID-VkBindBufferMemoryInfo-buffer-parameter
    buffer must be a valid VkBuffer handle

  • VUID-VkBindBufferMemoryInfo-memory-parameter
    memory must be a valid VkDeviceMemory handle

  • VUID-VkBindBufferMemoryInfo-commonparent
    Both of buffer, and memory must have been created, allocated, or retrieved from the same VkDevice
