C Specification

A single debug label can be inserted into a command buffer by calling:

// Provided by VK_EXT_debug_utils
void vkCmdInsertDebugUtilsLabelEXT(
    VkCommandBuffer                             commandBuffer,
    const VkDebugUtilsLabelEXT*                 pLabelInfo);


  • commandBuffer is the command buffer into which the command is recorded.

  • pInfo is a pointer to a VkDebugUtilsLabelEXT structure specifying parameters of the label to insert.


Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • commandBuffer must be a valid VkCommandBuffer handle

  • pLabelInfo must be a valid pointer to a valid VkDebugUtilsLabelEXT structure

  • commandBuffer must be in the recording state

  • The VkCommandPool that commandBuffer was allocated from must support graphics, or compute operations

Host Synchronization
  • Host access to commandBuffer must be externally synchronized

  • Host access to the VkCommandPool that commandBuffer was allocated from must be externally synchronized
