C Specification

When creating a Vulkan instance for which you wish to disable validation checks, add a VkValidationFlagsEXT structure to the pNext chain of the VkInstanceCreateInfo structure, specifying the checks to be disabled.

typedef struct VkValidationFlagsEXT {
    VkStructureType                sType;
    const void*                    pNext;
    uint32_t                       disabledValidationCheckCount;
    const VkValidationCheckEXT*    pDisabledValidationChecks;
} VkValidationFlagsEXT;


  • sType is the type of this structure.

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

  • disabledValidationCheckCount is the number of checks to disable.

  • pDisabledValidationChecks is a pointer to an array of VkValidationCheckEXT values specifying the validation checks to be disabled.


Valid Usage (Implicit)

  • pDisabledValidationChecks must be a valid pointer to an array of disabledValidationCheckCount valid VkValidationCheckEXT values

  • disabledValidationCheckCount must be greater than 0
