C Specification

To use a VkValidationCacheEXT to cache shader validation results, add a VkShaderModuleValidationCacheCreateInfoEXT structure to the pNext chain of the VkShaderModuleCreateInfo structure, specifying the cache object to use.

The VkShaderModuleValidationCacheCreateInfoEXT struct is defined as:

typedef struct VkShaderModuleValidationCacheCreateInfoEXT {
    VkStructureType         sType;
    const void*             pNext;
    VkValidationCacheEXT    validationCache;
} VkShaderModuleValidationCacheCreateInfoEXT;


  • sType is the type of this structure.

  • pNext is NULL or a pointer to an extension-specific structure.

  • validationCache is the validation cache object from which the results of prior validation attempts will be written, and to which new validation results for this VkShaderModule will be written (if not already present).


Valid Usage (Implicit)

  • validationCache must be a valid VkValidationCacheEXT handle
