C Specification

The VkValidationCacheCreateInfoEXT structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_EXT_validation_cache
typedef struct VkValidationCacheCreateInfoEXT {
    VkStructureType                    sType;
    const void*                        pNext;
    VkValidationCacheCreateFlagsEXT    flags;
    size_t                             initialDataSize;
    const void*                        pInitialData;
} VkValidationCacheCreateInfoEXT;


  • sType is the type of this structure.

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

  • flags is reserved for future use.

  • initialDataSize is the number of bytes in pInitialData. If initialDataSize is zero, the validation cache will initially be empty.

  • pInitialData is a pointer to previously retrieved validation cache data. If the validation cache data is incompatible (as defined below) with the device, the validation cache will be initially empty. If initialDataSize is zero, pInitialData is ignored.


Valid Usage
  • VUID-VkValidationCacheCreateInfoEXT-initialDataSize-01534
    If initialDataSize is not 0, it must be equal to the size of pInitialData, as returned by vkGetValidationCacheDataEXT when pInitialData was originally retrieved

  • VUID-VkValidationCacheCreateInfoEXT-initialDataSize-01535
    If initialDataSize is not 0, pInitialData must have been retrieved from a previous call to vkGetValidationCacheDataEXT

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

  • VUID-VkValidationCacheCreateInfoEXT-pNext-pNext
    pNext must be NULL

  • VUID-VkValidationCacheCreateInfoEXT-flags-zerobitmask
    flags must be 0

  • VUID-VkValidationCacheCreateInfoEXT-pInitialData-parameter
    If initialDataSize is not 0, pInitialData must be a valid pointer to an array of initialDataSize bytes
