C Specification

To obtain the list of Linux DRM format modifiers compatible with a VkFormat, add a VkDrmFormatModifierPropertiesListEXT structure to the pNext chain of VkFormatProperties2.

The VkDrmFormatModifierPropertiesListEXT structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_EXT_image_drm_format_modifier
typedef struct VkDrmFormatModifierPropertiesListEXT {
    VkStructureType                      sType;
    void*                                pNext;
    uint32_t                             drmFormatModifierCount;
    VkDrmFormatModifierPropertiesEXT*    pDrmFormatModifierProperties;
} VkDrmFormatModifierPropertiesListEXT;


  • sType is the type of this structure.

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

  • drmFormatModifierCount is an inout parameter related to the number of modifiers compatible with the format, as described below.

  • pDrmFormatModifierProperties is either NULL or an array of VkDrmFormatModifierPropertiesEXT structures.


If pDrmFormatModifierProperties is NULL, then the function returns in drmFormatModifierCount the number of modifiers compatible with the queried format. Otherwise, the application must set drmFormatModifierCount to the length of the array pDrmFormatModifierProperties; the function will write at most drmFormatModifierCount elements to the array, and will return in drmFormatModifierCount the number of elements written.

Among the elements in array pDrmFormatModifierProperties, each returned drmFormatModifier must be unique.

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-VkDrmFormatModifierPropertiesListEXT-sType-sType
