C Specification

The VkPhysicalDeviceShaderDemoteToHelperInvocationFeaturesEXT structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_EXT_shader_demote_to_helper_invocation
typedef struct VkPhysicalDeviceShaderDemoteToHelperInvocationFeaturesEXT {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    void*              pNext;
    VkBool32           shaderDemoteToHelperInvocation;
} VkPhysicalDeviceShaderDemoteToHelperInvocationFeaturesEXT;


This structure describes the following feature:


  • sType is the type of this structure.

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

  • shaderDemoteToHelperInvocation indicates whether the implementation supports the SPIR-V DemoteToHelperInvocationEXT capability.

If the VkPhysicalDeviceShaderDemoteToHelperInvocationFeaturesEXT structure is included in the pNext chain of the VkPhysicalDeviceFeatures2 structure passed to vkGetPhysicalDeviceFeatures2, it is filled in to indicate whether each corresponding feature is supported. VkPhysicalDeviceShaderDemoteToHelperInvocationFeaturesEXT can also be used in the pNext chain of VkDeviceCreateInfo to selectively enable these features.

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