C Specification

The discard rectangles can be set dynamically with the command:

// Provided by VK_EXT_discard_rectangles
void vkCmdSetDiscardRectangleEXT(
    VkCommandBuffer                             commandBuffer,
    uint32_t                                    firstDiscardRectangle,
    uint32_t                                    discardRectangleCount,
    const VkRect2D*                             pDiscardRectangles);

Parameters

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

  • firstDiscardRectangle is the index of the first discard rectangle whose state is updated by the command.

  • discardRectangleCount is the number of discard rectangles whose state are updated by the command.

  • pDiscardRectangles is a pointer to an array of VkRect2D structures specifying discard rectangles.

Description

The discard rectangle taken from element i of pDiscardRectangles replace the current state for the discard rectangle at index firstDiscardRectangle + i, for i in [0, discardRectangleCount).

This command sets the state for a given draw when the graphics pipeline is created with VK_DYNAMIC_STATE_DISCARD_RECTANGLE_EXT set in VkPipelineDynamicStateCreateInfo::pDynamicStates.

Valid Usage
  • The sum of firstDiscardRectangle and discardRectangleCount must be less than or equal to VkPhysicalDeviceDiscardRectanglePropertiesEXT::maxDiscardRectangles

  • The x and y member of offset in each VkRect2D element of pDiscardRectangles must be greater than or equal to 0

  • Evaluation of (offset.x + extent.width) in each VkRect2D element of pDiscardRectangles must not cause a signed integer addition overflow

  • Evaluation of (offset.y + extent.height) in each VkRect2D element of pDiscardRectangles must not cause a signed integer addition overflow

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

  • pDiscardRectangles must be a valid pointer to an array of discardRectangleCount VkRect2D structures

  • commandBuffer must be in the recording state

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

  • discardRectangleCount must be greater than 0

Host Synchronization
  • Host access to commandBuffer must be externally synchronized

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