C Specification

To attach memory to a VkImage object created without the VK_IMAGE_CREATE_DISJOINT_BIT set, call:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_0
VkResult vkBindImageMemory(
    VkDevice                                    device,
    VkImage                                     image,
    VkDeviceMemory                              memory,
    VkDeviceSize                                memoryOffset);

Parameters

  • device is the logical device that owns the image and memory.

  • image is the image.

  • memory is the VkDeviceMemory object describing the device memory to attach.

  • memoryOffset is the start offset of the region of memory which is to be bound to the image. The number of bytes returned in the VkMemoryRequirements::size member in memory, starting from memoryOffset bytes, will be bound to the specified image.

Description

vkBindImageMemory is equivalent to passing the same parameters through VkBindImageMemoryInfo to vkBindImageMemory2.

Valid Usage
  • VUID-vkBindImageMemory-image-01044
    image must not already be backed by a memory object

  • VUID-vkBindImageMemory-image-01045
    image must not have been created with any sparse memory binding flags

  • VUID-vkBindImageMemory-memoryOffset-01046
    memoryOffset must be less than the size of memory

  • VUID-vkBindImageMemory-image-01445
    If image requires a dedicated allocation (as reported by vkGetImageMemoryRequirements2 in VkMemoryDedicatedRequirements::requiresDedicatedAllocation for image), memory must have been created with VkMemoryDedicatedAllocateInfo::image equal to image

  • VUID-vkBindImageMemory-memory-02628
    If the dedicated allocation image aliasing feature is not enabled, and the VkMemoryAllocateInfo provided when memory was allocated included a VkMemoryDedicatedAllocateInfo structure in its pNext chain, and VkMemoryDedicatedAllocateInfo::image was not VK_NULL_HANDLE, then image must equal VkMemoryDedicatedAllocateInfo::image and memoryOffset must be zero

  • VUID-vkBindImageMemory-memory-02629
    If the dedicated allocation image aliasing feature is enabled, and the VkMemoryAllocateInfo provided when memory was allocated included a VkMemoryDedicatedAllocateInfo structure in its pNext chain, and VkMemoryDedicatedAllocateInfo::image was not VK_NULL_HANDLE, then memoryOffset must be zero, and image must be either equal to VkMemoryDedicatedAllocateInfo::image or an image that was created using the same parameters in VkImageCreateInfo, with the exception that extent and arrayLayers may differ subject to the following restrictions: every dimension in the extent parameter of the image being bound must be equal to or smaller than the original image for which the allocation was created; and the arrayLayers parameter of the image being bound must be equal to or smaller than the original image for which the allocation was created

  • VUID-vkBindImageMemory-None-01901
    If image was created with the VK_IMAGE_CREATE_PROTECTED_BIT bit set, the image must be bound to a memory object allocated with a memory type that reports VK_MEMORY_PROPERTY_PROTECTED_BIT

  • VUID-vkBindImageMemory-None-01902
    If image was created with the VK_IMAGE_CREATE_PROTECTED_BIT bit not set, the image must not be bound to a memory object created with a memory type that reports VK_MEMORY_PROPERTY_PROTECTED_BIT

  • VUID-vkBindImageMemory-image-01050
    If image was created with VkDedicatedAllocationImageCreateInfoNV::dedicatedAllocation equal to VK_TRUE, memory must have been created with VkDedicatedAllocationMemoryAllocateInfoNV::image equal to an image handle created with identical creation parameters to image and memoryOffset must be zero

  • VUID-vkBindImageMemory-memory-02728
    If the value of VkExportMemoryAllocateInfo::handleTypes used to allocate memory is not 0, it must include at least one of the handles set in VkExternalMemoryImageCreateInfo::handleTypes when image was created

  • VUID-vkBindImageMemory-memory-02989
    If memory was created by a memory import operation, that is not VkImportAndroidHardwareBufferInfoANDROID with a non-NULL buffer value, the external handle type of the imported memory must also have been set in VkExternalMemoryImageCreateInfo::handleTypes when image was created

  • VUID-vkBindImageMemory-memory-02990
    If memory was created with the VkImportAndroidHardwareBufferInfoANDROID memory import operation with a non-NULL buffer value, VK_EXTERNAL_MEMORY_HANDLE_TYPE_ANDROID_HARDWARE_BUFFER_BIT_ANDROID must also have been set in VkExternalMemoryImageCreateInfo::handleTypes when image was created

  • VUID-vkBindImageMemory-image-01608
    image must not have been created with the VK_IMAGE_CREATE_DISJOINT_BIT set

  • VUID-vkBindImageMemory-memory-01047
    memory must have been allocated using one of the memory types allowed in the memoryTypeBits member of the VkMemoryRequirements structure returned from a call to vkGetImageMemoryRequirements with image

  • VUID-vkBindImageMemory-memoryOffset-01048
    memoryOffset must be an integer multiple of the alignment member of the VkMemoryRequirements structure returned from a call to vkGetImageMemoryRequirements with image

  • VUID-vkBindImageMemory-size-01049
    The difference of the size of memory and memoryOffset must be greater than or equal to the size member of the VkMemoryRequirements structure returned from a call to vkGetImageMemoryRequirements with the same image

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-vkBindImageMemory-device-parameter
    device must be a valid VkDevice handle

  • VUID-vkBindImageMemory-image-parameter
    image must be a valid VkImage handle

  • VUID-vkBindImageMemory-memory-parameter
    memory must be a valid VkDeviceMemory handle

  • VUID-vkBindImageMemory-image-parent
    image must have been created, allocated, or retrieved from device

  • VUID-vkBindImageMemory-memory-parent
    memory must have been created, allocated, or retrieved from device

Host Synchronization
  • Host access to image must be externally synchronized

Return Codes
On success, this command returns
  • VK_SUCCESS

On failure, this command returns
  • VK_ERROR_OUT_OF_HOST_MEMORY

  • VK_ERROR_OUT_OF_DEVICE_MEMORY
