C Specification

The VkSemaphoreSignalInfo structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_2
typedef struct VkSemaphoreSignalInfo {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    const void*        pNext;
    VkSemaphore        semaphore;
    uint64_t           value;
} VkSemaphoreSignalInfo;

or the equivalent

// Provided by VK_KHR_timeline_semaphore
typedef VkSemaphoreSignalInfo VkSemaphoreSignalInfoKHR;


  • sType is the type of this structure.

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

  • semaphore is the handle of the semaphore to signal.

  • value is the value to signal.


Valid Usage
  • VUID-VkSemaphoreSignalInfo-semaphore-03257
    semaphore must have been created with a VkSemaphoreType of VK_SEMAPHORE_TYPE_TIMELINE

  • VUID-VkSemaphoreSignalInfo-value-03258
    value must have a value greater than the current value of the semaphore

  • VUID-VkSemaphoreSignalInfo-value-03259
    value must be less than the value of any pending semaphore signal operations

  • VUID-VkSemaphoreSignalInfo-value-03260
    value must have a value which does not differ from the current value of the semaphore or the value of any outstanding semaphore wait or signal operation on semaphore by more than maxTimelineSemaphoreValueDifference

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

  • VUID-VkSemaphoreSignalInfo-pNext-pNext
    pNext must be NULL

  • VUID-VkSemaphoreSignalInfo-semaphore-parameter
    semaphore must be a valid VkSemaphore handle
