C Specification

The VkDebugUtilsObjectNameInfoEXT structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_EXT_debug_utils
typedef struct VkDebugUtilsObjectNameInfoEXT {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    const void*        pNext;
    VkObjectType       objectType;
    uint64_t           objectHandle;
    const char*        pObjectName;
} VkDebugUtilsObjectNameInfoEXT;


  • sType is the type of this structure.

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

  • objectType is a VkObjectType specifying the type of the object to be named.

  • objectHandle is the object to be named.

  • pObjectName is either NULL or a null-terminated UTF-8 string specifying the name to apply to objectHandle.


Applications may change the name associated with an object simply by calling vkSetDebugUtilsObjectNameEXT again with a new string. If pObjectName is either NULL or an empty string, then any previously set name is removed.

Valid Usage
Valid Usage (Implicit)

  • pNext must be NULL

  • objectType must be a valid VkObjectType value

  • If pObjectName is not NULL, pObjectName must be a null-terminated UTF-8 string
