C Specification

The descriptor update template type is determined by the VkDescriptorUpdateTemplateCreateInfo::templateType property, which takes the following values:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_1
typedef enum VkDescriptorUpdateTemplateType {
    VK_DESCRIPTOR_UPDATE_TEMPLATE_TYPE_DESCRIPTOR_SET = 0,
  // Provided by VK_KHR_push_descriptor with VK_VERSION_1_1, VK_KHR_push_descriptor with VK_KHR_descriptor_update_template, VK_KHR_descriptor_update_template with VK_KHR_push_descriptor
    VK_DESCRIPTOR_UPDATE_TEMPLATE_TYPE_PUSH_DESCRIPTORS_KHR = 1,
  // Provided by VK_KHR_descriptor_update_template
    VK_DESCRIPTOR_UPDATE_TEMPLATE_TYPE_DESCRIPTOR_SET_KHR = VK_DESCRIPTOR_UPDATE_TEMPLATE_TYPE_DESCRIPTOR_SET,
} VkDescriptorUpdateTemplateType;

or the equivalent

// Provided by VK_KHR_descriptor_update_template
typedef VkDescriptorUpdateTemplateType VkDescriptorUpdateTemplateTypeKHR;

Description

  • VK_DESCRIPTOR_UPDATE_TEMPLATE_TYPE_DESCRIPTOR_SET specifies that the descriptor update template will be used for descriptor set updates only.

  • VK_DESCRIPTOR_UPDATE_TEMPLATE_TYPE_PUSH_DESCRIPTORS_KHR specifies that the descriptor update template will be used for push descriptor updates only.
